Absolutely the best place for a friendly lunch and awesome food. The owners are cool and go out of their way to make the experience awesome. They serve the world's best Key Lime Pie!

We followed the Trip Advisor advice and had a delicious dinner of their fantastic Paella and a Caesar salad with fresh grilled lobster. Both were excellent. Our server, Adam, was friendly and gracious.

The search through the alleyways paid off. The sign at the entryway reads Meson Amalia. The paella was nicely spiced and the seafood was cooked to perfection. The star at the table was the fabulous zarzuela which boasted a flavorful broth with a touch of...More

Palm Passage is a walkway as opposed to a street. There's a big "Palm Passage" sign at the waterfront end. A map would be helpful here.
