Every time I'm in Brasilito I go to Papayas for breakfast. The food is always good and so is the atmosphere. It's a slow relaxed pace with wonderful food at a reasonable price. I would highly recommend Papayas for breakfast and even other meals.More

Hidden gym, absolutely wonderful dinner. Best meal on our vacation. Hidden behind a small, quaint hotel 5 mile outside of Playa Flamingo. Open-air restaurant with excellent menu. Highly recommend.

Description
Informal dining in a beautiful relaxed environment. Serving super fresh seafood, steaks and vegetarian options. Live dinner music through high season Tuesdays and Saturdays. Breakfast and dinner specials daily (best value in town!) and Happy Hour with signature cocktails and local beers 2x1 Chef Hilda Rodriguez creates signature dishes including cocounut Mahi-Mahi, lobster with mango chili salsa, fresh seared sesame-crust tuna, Thai style coconut curries, and our famous Surf 'n' Surf. We highly recommend reservations in high season.
