We were sent here by friends who had visited Costa Rica a few years ago. Great food in a relaxing atmosphere. Went here with my husband and 2 teenage children. We started with fried and grilled calamari for an appetizer...preferred the grilled. The fish was very good (we had the Red Snapper and Mahi), the sides were fresh and cooked... More

We stopped for lunch during our day trip to Coco. The lady in the souvenir shop recommended we come here for lunch and we were not disappointed. Seating is open air on a covered deck overlooking the Main Street in Coco. The waiter seated us directly in front of a fan, which was great! We ordered the catch of the... More

The owner was very welcoming and the atmosphere was extremely Costa Rican. I had the "catch of the day" which was red snapper. It seasoned very well and you have the option to choose from about 10 different sauces. I chose the dijon with mushrooms that was outta sight! The plate also came with seasoned mash potatoes and a side... More

Great food, Marinara seafood Pasta was extremely good. Prices are fine and the place is nice. The only problem is that we had to wait 30 minutes for our food! It was worth it tho..

Spent the week in Playas Del Coco diving with 5 friends. We had dinner here three times and always enjoyed the meals and service.

2 stars because my son liked the calamari and the cesar salad was decent. Aside from that we waited over 30 minutes for our food. The garlic /pesto shrimp was overcooked and lacked taste so much I had to add salt. My other son's shrimp dish was tasteless and my husband's entire seafood platter was all deepfried and overcooked (more... More

13 years I have been eating here and they have lost it. Everything use to be consistently good but in my last two visits six months apart I have found no reason to return. My wife's pargo was very salty especially on one side. Looked good, fish tasted great except for the salt, but truly over the top with salt.... More

We were a little weary of Papagayo when we arrived, not quite sure what to make of the sprawling restaurant with the sushi boat inside. Granted, it was early for dinner, but the two story building seemed pretty quiet. Our host invited us to sit upstairs, a plus for people watching. Our table was great for watching the main drag...
