Stopped here for lunch while shopping in Coco Beach. Good food,cold drinks and great service! We sat near the balcony in the shade so we could see the shops. The lobster with seafood medley was delicious as was the macadamia sea bass!

we were in Coco for 5 weeks and wanted to go to a little higher end place. We were told that Papagayo Seafood was the place. We were disappointed that the food was cold, the price was high and the atmosphere was just OK. There...More

Stopped off here during our recent holiday, and very good it was too. Cool beers, decent snacks, prompt service and a central location - what more do you want or need?!

Nice waiters and decent sea food. The terrace is pleasant with a nice breeze and few over the crowded street. The place is not the best but certainly not the worst you will find in playas del coco.

Stopped here for lunch. Great choice. Fantastic location and great view from the balcony. Everything we ordered was fresh and tasty and reasonably priced. I had the New Orlean's Shrimp and it was "To Die For". Everyone enjoyed their meal, but thought my shrimp was...More

Food is good but not consistent. Sometimes it is delicious and other times we find ourselves sending one or more items back to be re made. Personally I like their jambalaya with shrimp though the shrimp sometimes tastes like it was frozen not fresh. They...More

I only saw outdoor dining. It was very comfortable.

I would like to ask the owners of Papagayos Seafood about their staff and management. Mainly about customer service. Handling of unsatisfactory food served to client. We spent 234.00 on 4 meals and 5 cocktails and a Coke. 2 of our stuffed Lobsters the tail were mushy and grainy. We told your staff and they gave us s whopping 2300 colones off our entire ticket. Should have just slapped me and told me to leave! Our server never came to see how our food was for 30 minutes. Not good. I've owned 2 restaurants for 25 years and if my staff pulled that kinda crap with my customers they would be finding a different job. Also your Chef on the evening of feb 25 needs training. Presentation of stuffed lobster was terrible. I've seen dozens of pics from there and were beautiful. I'd be glad to send you my pic. Thanks Joe
