I enjoyed my visit to Papi's. It was very festive and the food was delicious! I was there for a first date, not ideal for that situation; but, I would definitely return for a girl's night out. Our waiter was very nice, knowledgeable, and attentive. The food was definitely the star of the show. I see many others enjoyed the... More

This is real authentic Latin American cuisine. I felt like home, like grandma was in the kitchen. I am from Panama and went with a friend from Honduras, and we were both craving for authentic Cuban or any Latin/Caribbean meal... I will HIGHLY recommend this place for someone wanting a taste of home ( if you are Hispanic) and if... More

The mojito's are very good. The ropa is crazy tasty as well as the palomillia. The atmosphere is bland, but it was not very busy that afternoon. The staff was very friendly. Would recommend.

Since my husband is Cuban and I'm a good cook ... I learned to make a number of traditional Cuban dishes. The Lawrenceville Papi's is as close to home cooked Cuban meal as you're going to get in the Atlanta metro area. We've been to other Cuban restaurants in Atlanta and they aren't nearly as good (this is as of... More

This is a fun place to eat and gives you the sense of caribbean cuisine. The waitstaff are pleasant and will engage in conversation if you like. I travel to the Caribbean for business and Papi's get's fairly close to the real thing.

We enjoyed and evening of delicious Cuban food at Papi's. The service was friendly and prompt. Just what two very hungry folks needed on a rainy night in Georgia.

My husband died May 24th. On May 23rd Friday night we shared a Margarita, it was so good. Anyway I went to Papi almost everyday, since. I felt like I couldn't cope, I couldn't think, I had a tone of emotions . So I'd have my usual, and I was treated like a princess. Everyone was so nice and polite... More
