Hi Dewi, Thank you for dining at our Italian night event. You had a pizza margarita and a pasta arrabiata. Italian Night is a special promotion to offer a more mainstream dining option to our customers. However, it is not our core business, nor the...More

Hi, Thank you for dining with us, and than you for appreciating our food. We are still working on getting them to change the signs from Papagayo Specialy to Roast Gastrobar, but you know how it is on the islands.."poco poco" -:)

The menu is composed mostly of “small plates.” There were two of us and we ordered 4 plates - the food was delicious! And the presentation just beautiful. Atmosphere and service was quite good. But the plates were much smaller than we would have thought....More
