Papagayo Seafood offers tasty fresh seafood at a mid range price. We started with the Shrimp soup and Fried Calamari. Both appetizers were very tasty. For the meal I had the red sanpper (catch of the day) and my partner had the surf and turf. Both were very good. The wait staff is very good and attentive. You will receive... More

We hadn't been in a couple of years as we found the meals very oily. After talking to a few people we decided to give it another try. Very good this time. Nicely cooked wahoo fish... very meaty. Service was good. We'll be back

The catch of the day comes with mashed potatoes that were red into a volcano and a medley of vegetables. For your fresh catch, you have a choice of sauces. Wow! The only thing to be aware of...

This place is really hit or miss, especially with the service. Went yesterday for a early dinner, and waited over a half hour for the caesar salad that came with the meal, and then only after I asked for it two times, from two different wait staff! They never asked my wife if she would like another wine, and the... More

Great place for seafood. Second floor provides open-air dining with a good view of the main street. Great for people-watching or just hanging out.

The people were really friendly, and the food was excellent, the Shrimp bisque is highly recommended, and the tuna was cooked to perfection. We enjoyed it so much, came back for a second time for our last night there, this time we had mahi mahi which was also cooked to perfection..

Thank Bill O
