I went there to have some good fresh seafood and I got it but the price was ridiculous. It's not as if they have to import the fish yet I paid over $32.00 for their cheapest fish dish and a glass of white wine. I would not go back.

A lovely meal for two at a very reasonable price. Filet mignon cooked to perfection, roasted veggies tasty and fresh. Highly recommended. Whole bill $50! Felt like an expensive night without the high bill!

Enjoyed several meals -- and pleasant conversations with the owners -- at Papaya, during my stay at Conchal Hotel in May. Completely out of character for me: once I ate here, I just didn't want to go anywhere else. Meals were all outstanding, carefully prepared with the freshest ingredients. I think beef comes from Nicaragua and seafood is locally sourced... More

We recently visited this restaurant and were very pleased with the level of service from the husband and wife team delivered. The menu was also quite good and well presented. We visited on a Wednesday night and they had a nice guitar player creating a very nice ambience. We spent approx. $70 for dinner for two and included two liquor... More

We found this restaurant close to the end of our stay in Brasilito and I wish we discovered it earlier. Our family of 4 had dinner here at this restaurant at the Conchal Hotel. I had the traditional casado with grilled chicken and my husband had the coconut mahi-mahi. Our sons had standard kid fare - chicken fingers. We all... More

We have been to CR 9 times over the years and 3 times in the Playa Conchal area. We really enjoy waterfront dining experiences and I could write for days about the unique and diverse dining experiences from Tamarindo to Las Casilitis. Last night was an enjoyable and pricey (party of 7) dining experience at the Conchal Hotel. Others have... More

My wife and I stumbled across this place at 11 am. What a find ! The lady who I think is the owner cooked for us. We got a falafel wrap and a chicken wrap (~10$). The smoothies we ordered were made fresh while we watched, in line other places which were pre made and refrigerated. Food was fresh and... More

We found Papaya on our next to last night in Playa Conchal and regret that we did not find it sooner. We had dinner there 2 nights and breakfast one morning. Everything was fresh and fabulous. The filet mignon (Nicaraguan beef) is not to be missed. It was cooked perfectly and had fantastic flavor. Our 12 year old son had... More

My husband had the lobster 5 spice which was very good. But the coconut mahi mahi is not to be missed! Very, very good.
