The place had a nice atmosphere and the waiter was very nice. Unfortunately the food was mediocre, with exception of the shrimp, which were terrible. I couldn't even eat them they were horribly overlooked and tasted like they had been frozen for a while. My friend had the tuna which she said was fine. I wouldn't go back.

This seafood restaurant has the largest selection of seafood available of any restaurant in Coco. The owner has a fishing fleet so you can be sure the fish is fresh and plentiful. There are so many choices of how the fish can be prepared and the different sauces that accompany the fish like Macadamia Nut or Green Sauce....... Good selection... More

My tuna steak with a ginger sauce was excellent! My friends liked their meals alright but they each tried a bite of the tuna and wished they had gotten that. The owner talked with us and seated us but after he left the service was slow and inattentive. The price was very reasonable, especially considering the decor and atmosphere made... More

My friend & I visited Papagayo Seafood for dinner during out trip to Coco Beach. My friend ordered the Mahi Mahi which was the catch of the day and I ordered the Tuna. Our dinner was served with bread to share and a salad each as appetizers. Each dish came with a side of steamed veggies. The staff was friendly,... More

If you like hanging around tourists rather than locals and party in places which are overpriced and only for tourists, you will be in the right place. There is not much left from Costa Rica culture or even the country, which is a great shame. Beaches around are much nicer and quieter.

We visited Costa Rica two years ago and found papagayos seafood. It was excellent then. Needless to say when we came back this year we looked forward to going there. Things definitely changed and not for the good. The first time we were there we ordered just the calamari appetizer. It was rubbery. The waiter was not happy that all... More
