Something a little different

We came here based on the other reviews here. Well it was very good and nice to have something different. The service was excellent. It is very noisy because there happen to be a very large table next to us and there was live music. I'll definitely come back on my next trip and hopefully get a... read more

A great place to go if you are visiting Encinitas. They have live music and a lovely atmosphere, just like you want it in small towns like this. The food is not bad either, I had breakfast here a couple of times, and a great dinner. Not the best food ever, but totally ok. Service is good, and I recommend... More

We found the food here to be delicious, especially the salad with strawberries and goats cheese. The staff were helpful and the atmosphere is so relaxing. Its definitely worth a visit and such a short stroll to the beautiful beach.

We used to love this place but it just keeps getting worse over the years. There was a time when they changed chefs and it seemed to shake things up. We hoped they would get their groove back but it just gets more disappointing over time. Some of their dishes are still good like the wahine salad, lobster bisque, and... More

Had 5 things to eat, lobster bisque, black bean soup, calamarie, clams, and California burrito. Bisque burrito were good, rest not so much, worth going just for the burrito though

I was excited to try out the Mexican dishes in this restaurant. Although we only stopped for lunch- I was going to order the best Mexican dish on their menu. Since Southern Cslifornia has the best Mexican food around, I was expecting a real treat. You cannot get good Mexican food where I am from. We got served immediately as... More

We ate here on a Tuesday night and the place was fairly full, with live music. The hostess acted like it was a big bother to seat us, even with a reservation, but the waitress made up for it. She was very patient as we nibbled while waiting for a fourth person to join our group. Some creative choices for... More

We visited Le Papagayo on a Saturday night so it was very crowded. I don't know how the waitstaff managed to get around. We sat outside near the heater and enjoyed some expensive drinks and some live music.
