High quality food

I had seared tuna with a wasabi sauce on the side. Truly delicious. Setting is in a hotel perched on the second level overlooking the pool.

The food at Papaya Restaurant is delicious and healthy. You can see them cooking the meal for you. The service is friendly and they greet you with a smile. It's inside a small hotel with a pool so you can stay the night if you like. They also have acoustic live music on Tuesdays that makes it for a great... More

We stayed in Playa Conchal/Brasilito for 6 days and went to all the top spots - this was by far our favorite, we went back 2 nights in a row. The food was incredibly fresh and the ingredients were well thought out. If you are staying in this area, you must visit Papaya.

This restaurat at the Conchal Hotel is so much more than one would expect! We ended up trying this our first night staying at the hotel, after a long day horsback riding. We had every intention of making it a one time thing, and exploring the rest of the area for our other meals during our 3 days in Brasilito.... More

Gourmet foods, freshly made with local ingredients. The fruits are incredible! We had fish made several ways and they were all incredible. We purchased wraps for our road trip the next day (one fish, one filafal), and they were superb!
