Second trip from other side of San Antonio to this nice up scale Mexican themed restaurant with dining inside and outside. I and three guests started lunch with Margarita chips and salsa. I had the ceviche (for the second time). Order guests ordered from lunch...More

Other than mine, their ceviche is noteworthy. I prefer scallops, fish & shrimp, instead of just fish, but Paloma Blanca captures the most important part of ceviche...the flavor! Right amount of lime, venegar, & spiciness. Table-side made quacamole rivals On The Border--other SA restaurants don't...More

I went here for dinner one night while in San Antonio. The wait was not too bad as they had a classical guitarist in the bar area. Our server was very prompt. The salsa's were very good. We had the Ceviche as an appetizer which...More

We visited here for both happy hour and lunch. Great ambiance, with a nice outdoor area (despite its strip mall location) and indoor dining that's a bit quieter than your usual Mexican place. Nice selection of appetizers at happy hour, with reasonable drinks. Menu items...More

This is THE best Mexican food yet. Have lived in Texas for forty plus years and this is the best. Wish I lived in San Antonio!

I went here while in town on business. There were folks eating out on a nice, shady terrace but I elected to eat inside. The building is on several levels, so it's a cool restaurant; definitely not your "typical" tex-mex-style restaurant. The service was friendly...More

We went on a Friday night to have dinner with in laws and although we had to wait around 45 minutes to get a table, we really enjoyed the crunchy flautas, and the fish. It's far from touristic areas, but the flavors won't disappoint.

First it is a pretty place. It is large inside and can accommodate many people, but it is broken up, so no one single area feels too big. There is an outside patio that feels "away from it all." The décor is an elegant, old...More

Since 1997, Paloma Blanca Mexican Cuisine has become well-known for offering much more than traditional "Tex-Mex" fare. Tempting offerings include items as varied as grilled snapper, enchiladas verdes, pozole soup, hand made flautas and tacos al pastor. For margaritas by a cool fountain, a relaxing dinner on the terrace or appetizers in our hacienda-style dining rooms, Paloma Blanca invites you to enjoy our autentico brand of Mexican cuisine and hospitality.
