Came here from a local recommendation and found out it was happy hour menu. Ordered the calamari and spicy shrimp and both were great. The calamari was amazing. Now trying the banana bread pudding. I will let you know.

This place has a really nice atmosphere near the beach on 101 in Encinitas. There were six of us, each having something different, and all very satisfied. Everything was well prepared, hot and quite tasty. We would come back here again.

I like this place but on our most recent visit, it was crowded and we were placed way in the back section, the cost was on the high side and the food was good but not so good that you were thrilled. This place used to be a funky local secret that had great food and now it seems to... More

A treat to find a restaurant that will take reservations for happy hour. Funky, fun and affordable! We had a party of eight who wanted to be seated where the tv's were visible. They made it happen with ease. The menu selections had something for all eight to enjoy!

Wonderful Happy Hour menu 4-6 pm even on a Sat. & Sun. Excellent service and great sangria options. Would go again for a meal off the main menu.

Fish was fantastic, steak cooked to order but was cold and unfortunately I was disappointed with my paella and wished I ordered the sea bass. Wasn't major though as the service, environment... More

My wife and I had lunch at Le Pagagayo on Saturday and the food was excellent. We stumbled across this restaurant while in our bike ride from Oceanside to San Diego. They have a diverse menu with many different choices to satisfy all tastes. They have tables outside for dog lovers which we thought was a nice touch. This restaurant... More

A bunch of us went to Le Papagayo for happy hour. We love the food selections that are offered on the menu. We got a table outside (8 of us) and had at it. Everyone ordered whatever they wanted and we did a lot of sharing. Examples- I had a spicy shrimp plate that had enough shrimp for 4 people.... More
