    Disappointed as the cut of chicken for the satay was like the throw away parts. Lists of fat and grizzle. It was hard to find any pics to eat. The sauce was very good, and rice.

    Party of 6. Two of us order salads and plan to share with 2 others. They bring out 1 salad and 2 other entres and we wait. We tell everyone to just start eating. Then a few minutes later the other salad (mine) followed immediately by my entre comes out , then the other entres. I essentially had two bites of salad and then pushed it aside so my halibut wouldn’t get cold. No awareness by server the inappropriateness of that. I did say something and she seemed unaware that it’s not great etiquette and gave a half hearted apology. The halibut was excellent but bolognese my daughter had was weird. Jerk chicken was spicy enough it sort of overpowered any other flavor. And FYI there are NOT many GF options if that matters to you! Also, the portions were huge. The bolognese could easily feed 2 if not 3. Maybe some people like that, but mostly I see it as wasteful. The atmosphere was great, so they at least have that. But they need to train their servers better and maybe cut down portions a bit? How many people really bring home leftovers? How much is being thrown away? Something to look at. We likely won’t return. Many other great options in Carlsbad!

    We went as a large group & the restaurant was very accommodating. The food is pricey for what you get. The food was also hit and miss. 3 people got the lobster roll and all 3 were disappointed. The french dip and burger people were happy. No one liked the onion rings. But the mac-n-cheese was delicious. The ambiance is sports-bar-meets-concert. So so many TVs all around the dining area and the live music was turned up to 11. We didn’t have a decent conversation until we got out into the parking lot.

    Great waitress and the food is good. Menue should have something for everyone. They do have Tv for the games and staff is really nice. They also let us sit and talk and did not feel rushed. It was a little hot inside but the weather is changing. Nice live music. Good beer and wine menus and if you can do happy hour good food good deals

    Seated for 20+ mins before we had a server, seated right next to a band stage that started shortly after. Couldn’t have any conversation whatsoever. Terrible placement for a table. Really glad we chose to take friends from out of town there so the evening we have to see them could have zero conversation.

    Had made a reservation for 6:30 pm, and arrived a couple minutes early. We were seated promptly and greeted by the waitress within a few minutes before really having a chance to fully pursue the menu. It was my fault when she asked if we wanted to order appetizers and I knew that I wanted a salad so I ordered that and the salmon and my husband ordered the prime rib. Everything came out quickly, and was very good but we were out of there at 7:07!!! So it was definitely delicious but definitely NOT a leisurely meal.

    This is one of our hidden favorites, and we return year after year. We planned a visit to Oceanside, and Papagayo is only a short ten-minute drive from our hotel. We were sure to make reservations weeks before our visit so that we would not be disappointed, and Papagayo came through with flying colors. Friendly staff, and perhaps the most diverse menu I've ever seen. There is something for every taste, and we could eat there for a week and still discover new dishes. Yum, yum.

    It was a disaster. Had a table for 8 they put us in the patio but by the time I got there some of my party joined another table by our friends the band. Once the rest of my party got there they finally got a table for 4 nowhere near each other. I have been reserving a table there for the same band and generally the same people get together for quite a few years. And it’s unfortunate I have to be specific about what table I want. History means nothing. It was a disappointing night. I was unable to enjoy it as I had planned.

    We went in for Sunday Brunch. We had reservations, and were seated right on time. Our table was adjacent to the bar, so a little loud. We ordered drinks and brunch at the same time - our food came out about 10 minutes before our drinks came. Food was very good, appropriate portions. Drinks were a little on the strong side. Don't be fooled by the Watermelon Sugar - it is actually a spicy watermelon margarita...
