Palapa Grill | Restaurant & Lounge

“A side of Zen with your dinner. A splash of pizzazz in your cocktail. Multiple sensations for your mind. Palapa Grill is more than dinner!”

A Paradise in an unlikely location; amongst the yachts, tourists, and a busy main street, there is Palapa Grill. Behind the bright pink doors is a tropical oasis of style with phenomenal food and luxury refreshments.

The menu consists of local fare and sustainable quality meats along with vegan and vegetarian options. The handcrafted cocktail menu impresses in both presentation and taste. Palapa Lounge is a World Class Bar with cocktails made by talented mixologists.

The hip & vibrant staff deliver above and beyond expectations, relating stories & tales of how the restaurant was rebuilt after Hurricane Irma and how they came together as a family.

by Robert on Palapa Grill | Restaurant & Lounge

Had a super time here, friendly people, nice looking place and good food. Worth a visit!

by Niki on Palapa Grill | Restaurant & Lounge

Beautifully decorated, stylish interior, the presentation of the food is superb and taste as well. But what makes the place is the service and how everything seems possible... Went there for a Birthday Bash and they really went all the way to make things great for us, the manager even started to DJ for us. Overall 5 out of 5!

by Lisa Ench S. on Palapa Grill | Restaurant & Lounge

Best Restaurant on the island and best people that own it. Their staff is like no other restaurant we've been to! A must go to...
Great cocktails (Green eyes is my favorite) and fantastic food. Love to you Barbara, Deon and the rest of the Palapa family!
