On March 4 I decided to take my partner to a place that I visited 23yrs ago when I was a Cruise Director. La Palapa always held a sentimental memory in my heart.
We had the best view of the sunset as in the past and shared it with my partner Ryzsard. Wow...
Food was outstanding...sure portions are smaller but economics plays a part and it favoured my waist line lol...
The night ended on a sour note and I still feel unsettled. Throughout the night our waiter seemed off. I hate to assume but I felt that he was uncomfortable serving us and those around us. It was predominantly gay friendly clientele.
That said I asked for our bill on three separate occasions over a course of one hour and ten minutes. Finally, I asked the bus boy and he directed us to the Manageress, who proceed to tell us that La Palapa apogized for the inconvenience and there was no bill?!
Yes, we were in a rush and straight forward asking why it took so long but we’re ready to pay. We also attempted to offer a tip to the staff. She explained that it was not necessary. We were a little confused. I’m hoping the waiter was not reprimanded. As we exited the restaurant we saw the busboy and gave him a large tip.
I want to thank the staff and management for this and we will return to your restaurant.
I highly recommend this place for a treat. Of course we all have our bad days but hopefully they can turn it around and use it as a learning tool. Meh, call me overly positive.
Mucho Gracias, until next year.
