Guanacaste and the Nicoya Peninsula Restaurants

Restaurante Papagayo Seafood

  • Seafood

Fodor's Review

The food here is straightforward, reliably fresh, and flavorful. Start with fish ceviche, or seafood soup generously packed with shrimp, squid, fish, and crab. Then sink your teeth into the catch of the day (including lobster, most notably), prepared any one of a dozen ways, or Papagayo seafood au gratin, a mix of sautéed seafood in a tarragon cream sauce. Seating is upstairs on a breezy terrace with views of the Main Street action. The restaurant also sells fresh fish

to take home. And for those who like their fish raw, the Papagayo Sushi Boat downstairs wraps up sushi rolls and serves sashimi from a real boat.

Very fresh fish

The restaurant is no longer located on the beach, but is in a large establishment on the Main St. Food is still good, but you don't get beach views.
