Nachos were very good! Very generous with the cheese on the quesedillas. Little bit over priced though for downtown hamilton.

This restaurant has been a favorite of ours for years. Not sure if it has changed owners or what but the food certainly was not up to par! The combination plates were dried out and did not even look appetizing! We were a table of 7 but there was only one other table of two in the entire restaurant so... More

We enjoyed our dinner at Papagayo! The nachos were flavourful. My husband had the pork cutlet and I had the shrimp; both dishes had heat! The servings are ample. For dessert, vanilla ice-cream - the best; and the Lime Tequila Cheesecake - made on the premises and it was so good! Our server was so pleasant and friendly. The prices... More

This is my all time favorite restaurant. I always order the chicken chimi changa and I'm never disappointed. Make sure you call ahead as they book up quickly on the weekends.

Three of us decided to try this Mexican love out over our lunch hour. There few only 2 other tables in so service was quite quick. I did the fish special for the day with a salad. One friend had the chicken nachos that was suppose to be a portion size for two but I would say it was really... More

Glad I had reservations as this cute, small restaurant downtown Hamilton is busy on the weekend. Good mix of drink options, I had a Tequila Sunrise, not best I'd had with gingerale being added. I did like that there was water bottles on the table for us to get our own water when needed. Good selection of menu dishes, love... More

Have been here countless times and was happy to see the menu change in time, which is a good thing if you want to be able to try different Mexican dishes. On a few of the occasions, the portions were on the small side and the food rather salty. It was however tasty. I am excited to try their new... More

Papagayo offers a nice selection of your typical Mexican dishes. The staff was friendly and the portions were quite large. For $10-$15, this venue is a perfect restaurant for lunch whether it be a meal with friends or with colleagues from work.
