It took over 45 minutes for us to be served our food. When the food arrived the portions were very small and low quality. Compare with other mexican restaurants we have been to, this La Palapa Restaurant was a big dissapointed.

Went for happy hour and what a value! Margaritas were excellent -- not too sweet as many tend to be. Happy hour tacos were delicious and we complemented it with a shrimp Caesar off the menu. Even though we were at a Mexican restaurant, this...More

La Palapa is friendly and fun, with prompt and attentive service, and reasonably priced for Aspen. A year ago I'd ranked this restaurant as "excellent" on the strength not only of its service but also its food - in particular its guacamole, tomato salsa and...More

Let me preface this by admitting I am a Mexican food snob as I live an area with really good Mexican food. The Margaritas were okay, the food was better and not bad for mountain Mexican. It is overpriced but I was in Aspen, so...More
