  • "Really liked the live band and music. Very nice outdoor back patio. Food was very simple though. However tasty. Service a little slow. Waitress forgot about us at one point."

  • "I had the lamb which was slightly overcooked, the garlic mashed potatoes had no garlic (or at least I couldn't taste it); my salad was very lightly dressed. Other food was under seasoned. If this improves, I'd be happy to come back."

  • "We were seated promptly given we had reservation. Was the worst table in restaurant between front door and bar. When we asked to be moved and were willing to wait. Without giving it a second thought, hostess said had no other tables. After repeating we were happy to wait, server said doesn't matter, they had other reservations. I said, shouldn't be a problem, you can give them our table. After a moment, she said they specifically requested the table. I said ALL of your later reservations specifically requested their tables? After a pause, Yes, was the answer. It was clear, she didn't care. So we left. Perhaps its success is getting to it. Too many good restaurants to tolerate such apathy. We'll never go again."

  • "Surprising place in Encinitas. Opentable described it accurately. May not look as a first choice from the street but try it. People are nice and the food is excellent."

  • "Had another pleasant experience dining at La Papagayo - this is my third visit. The appetizer of bread and pesto is fantastic, one of the best bread starters I have ever had. Overall a fantastic experience."

  • "The menu sounded so great online but the food was very mediocre. The service was equally disappointing. We constantly had to ask after our food, then sent it back, we had to keep asking for more water, utensils, and they delivered a birthday cake to the wrong table. I would not return nor recommend this restaurant."

  • "Was welcomed immediately. Food was great. We ordered lobster bisque, fish tacos, Kobe sliders, bouillabaisse, and creme brûlée. Only disappointment was creme brûlée and glass of Cabernet which had a fermented prune taste about it. Stick to beer or sangria. Music nightly and doesn't disappoint. Our server was very attentive and sat outdoors near heaters. Fun end to date night."

  • "What a find, not only fun people and great jazz music, but the food was crazy good. I had hawaiian pork described as cooked Laua style...I thought of when I ate some in Hawaii and thought could they possibly compare.....EXACTLY the same...as if cooked underground. Run, don't walk to this gem of a restaurant, you will not be dissappointed."

  • "Went on a Tuesday evening. Happy hour prices all evening. Very lively place with good food. Gets very loud inside especially with the music playing. Sitting outside is great. Wonderful sangria."

  • "Food was exceptional! Fish was fresh and cooked to perfection! Music was loud which limited some conversation, but the food was that good, I'd go back in a heartbeat!"
