Atmosphere was nice and waitstaff were good but the meal was very average. My sea bass was underdone and although plated beautifully, I could only only taste the vegetables that covered it, not the fish. For the price, we have had much better meals at...More

We visited this restaurant with friends. The sea bass was delicious and the presentation was very nice. I would suggest this is one of the better restaurants in Playa del Coco. Give it a try he will not be disappointed.

Stopped here for lunch while shopping in Coco Beach. Good food,cold drinks and great service! We sat near the balcony in the shade so we could see the shops. The lobster with seafood medley was delicious as was the macadamia sea bass!

I only saw outdoor dining. It was very comfortable.

I would like to ask the owners of Papagayos Seafood about their staff and management. Mainly about customer service. Handling of unsatisfactory food served to client. We spent 234.00 on 4 meals and 5 cocktails and a Coke. 2 of our stuffed Lobsters the tail were mushy and grainy. We told your staff and they gave us s whopping 2300 colones off our entire ticket. Should have just slapped me and told me to leave! Our server never came to see how our food was for 30 minutes. Not good. I've owned 2 restaurants for 25 years and if my staff pulled that kinda crap with my customers they would be finding a different job. Also your Chef on the evening of feb 25 needs training. Presentation of stuffed lobster was terrible. I've seen dozens of pics from there and were beautiful. I'd be glad to send you my pic. Thanks Joe
