Reviews for Cafe El Palomar

We LOVE this place. The food, service, cleanliness, and value is always superior. The views of the beach, lighthouse, sand volleyball whether sitting inside or out is always fun. We go multiple times each summer and each experience is exceptional. Love their Chillaquillas Rojas…but everything we’ve ordered is wonderful.

Been coming here for the last ten years, great food, kid friendly and good service. Chile verde burritos wet are my favorite. I also love the chiliquiles rojo. Great chips and salsa and homemade corn tortillas too.

05/01/2022It was a Sunday and lots of people at the beach. I didn't want to give up my free parking spot in front of the beach so I decided to order something here. The restaurant was packed and there was a line to order. I ordered the Carne Asada Nachos to go which came to almost $17 with tax and a tip? They were OK. I could eat the whole thing. So it will one starving gluttonous person or feed two not-so-very hungry people. If you order $15 or more of food you get chips full review
