We went here for supper and then for breakfast the following day. And breakfast again the day after!!

The Costa Rican breakfast is fairly standard in most restaurants, but it's not the same everywhere. The Papaya's food was very fresh & tasty.

My husband and I were lucky enough to stay at this hotel. We fell in love with the hotel and the restaurant was an added bonus. I ordered the tequilla shrimp and my husband ordered the mahi mahi- both were perfection! Also, my husband claims that their garlic bread was the best he's ever tasted. Everything is fresh and homemade and it shows!

By the end of our stay in Brasilito, we both felt like we were working for them because any chance we got we raved about their food. Our only regret is that we made too many evening plans and only ate dinner their once.

This gem of a restaurant deserves to be ranked #1 in Brasilito. It is one of these rare places where you can feel the care and passion of the people running the place in everything from the food that you eat to the service and ambience.

Walked into town from Westin one morning last week and stopped in for breakfast . Great atmosphere and reasonable prices for breakfast . Had the Huevos Rancheros for breakfast , my friend had the Costa Rican breakfast . Both tasty and filling . Would recommend for sure . Stayed for 1 week only at Westin , will return to Papaya for sure next time in we're in Costa Rica .
