Can't get that authentic fresh fries seafood everyone- but this one was great. Get the fried sampler for appetizers and dip into the spicy sauce, great flavor with soft texture. Service is spotty- so don't count on it being a star place. Kinda dirty in some regards- but food makes up for anything not being classy. If you want seafood... More

Papagayo came highly recommended so we tried it. Very touristy place on main street. Not very busy. We had fresh fish but found it average, as was the service. Fairly expensive for Coco. There are better places.

Really bad service, Agressive and just wanting to get our money. So bad feeling that we left before having dinner. We ate in the restaurant just vis-à-vis and looked at the empty terrace. No one came in this restaurant all night long.

The red snapper was delicious and we liked the choices for preparation. The kids didn't care, but I was glad for some veggies. The wait is long so definitely get some calamari for the table.

It's decent but nothing to brag about . I like people watching so sitting upstairs gives you a nice view of people passing by. The service was good and the food was average. I liked being downtown at night so that was a plus bc we were able to just walk to the nightclub

I would not recommend this place with the other choices in Coco. Food and service were both just OK. Prices too high for what you got.

Last time here we ordered the seafood meal for two, about $40. and well worth it. We both ordered seafood pasta this time, it was very average... order seafood when you'd here, sorry we didn't.

We ordered from their catch of the day and had sea bass and red snapper and it was excellent. My son ordered a seafood combo meal complete with squid. He loved it. Great service too!

The meal started off with a caesar salad drenched in dressing, which neither of us could eat even though we normally love caesar salad and were super hungry. The seafood pasta was equally as revolting. The prawns had no meat in them and neither did the crab leg. There were two whole octopus in the pasta (I thought there would... More
