Hidden gym, absolutely wonderful dinner. Best meal on our vacation. Hidden behind a small, quaint hotel 5 mile outside of Playa Flamingo. Open-air restaurant with excellent menu. Highly recommend.

We ate here for the last night of our holiday and it was the best meal we had by some way. The tuna carpaccio and the 'surf n surf' were both excellent, a little pricey for CR but still excellent. The guy who runs the...More

We really appreciated our time here. We were at the Westin and wanted to do something a little different. The service, food, and atmosphere was great.

We were here with our two daughters last night. The host and waiter was awesome, he knew who we were when we walked in (somehow) and made us feel very welcomed. He pointed out vegan dishes and basically said they could do whatever we wanted....More

Of seven nights in the Brasilito area, we had dinner 3 times at Papaya. Everything we tried was fresh, homemade and excellent. We also took fish tacos to the beach for lunch many days. Highly recommend. Good drinks too, though some are a little sweet...More

First the place smells. It's a mixture between rotting meat and sewage. The food was good, tasty, savory and nice presentation but way overpriced. The bartender was great!! Really personable, nice guy. He is their best asset. I wouldn't eat here again. Anders is just...More

So sorry for your experience. We had an isolated incident when we found a local fish supplier was dumping their garbage in the parking area without our permission. This was rectified very quickly on the night. We actually have a zero waste policy where any...More

Informal dining in a beautiful relaxed environment. Serving super fresh seafood, steaks and vegetarian options. Live dinner music through high season Tuesdays and Saturdays. Breakfast and dinner specials daily (best value in town!) and Happy Hour with signature cocktails and local beers 2x1 Chef Hilda Rodriguez creates signature dishes including cocounut Mahi-Mahi, lobster with mango chili salsa, fresh seared sesame-crust tuna, Thai style coconut curries, and our famous Surf 'n' Surf. We highly recommend reservations in high season.
