Slow Service!

This restaurant is at the Papagayo Resort which is an all inclusive hotel. The atmosphere was great but the service was very slow. It took an hour for our main course to be served.

All part of the Papagayo Resort and Spa Good dinner built around a Mediterranean theme. Limited menu but tasty dishes. Comfortable ambience so it is a good place to relax after a day at the beach of the pool. Good bar selections although the wine choices are limited. Exceptional staff. Very popular among resort guests so make advance reservations.

One item that stands out most in my my is the Seafood Soup--best thing I have ever eaten. Upscale restaurant, great atmosphere, great food and great staff.

This restaurant is a must. The best service and food in the Hilton Papagayo resort. The staff makes you comfortable and ensures that you have an excellent dining experience. I would go again, and again, and again.
