    we go to Papagayos a lot but this last time it took almost an hour to get our food and some items never came. maybe they were short handed in the kitchen. our server was nice, food was good.

    The patio was on the street but the traffic noise was ok and expected. They got busy and short-staffed at first but were attentive throughout the rest of our stay. We all enjoyed our selections. The pezole soup was delicious and heavy with melt-in-your-mouth pork.

    Love Papagayo!!!! ……. Normally. Yesterday’s experience was just so so. Our reservation was for outside patio, however our table was moved to inside as hostess said was going to rain. Reluctantly sat in the downstairs area which is kinda basement like….would not ever recommend this area. (Sun came out and no rain). Our Michael provided exceptional service, however the food was a bit disappointing, which is not typical. One guest ordered the burger and fries for over $25 (which is fine if an exceptional burger) however, comments were It was super basic, lacked flavor and was about the size of a small fast food burger. I would not recommend. Overall Papagayo can be a fun place to dine and feel some value (with today’s outrageous menu prices) the restaurant really needs to up their game with flavorful dishes, better portion sizes to create value and add ambience. Currently seems like relying on their past success to maintain relevant. Papagayo “come-on” spend a little of that $25 “burger money” and fix the leaky roof and jazz up the interior a little. People will notice the effort. 😎

    This is an Encinitas classic - go for the bar the ambience and music. I found the food is so so and menu is tired. Service is excellent and fast. Was just a bit disappointed in the food quality. For the price it should be a little fresher and more unique.
