Noise level inside was extremely high as children shouted and a table of 7 girls spoke very loudly. Hopefully, they can manage to move us outside were the ambiance was great. Then we can enjoy pleinfully our diner. thks!!!
I got 2 tacos and a salad. The tacos came out first. I ate slow waiting for my salad. They said it would be right out. I was not in a rush but really wanted my salad before my entire meal was finished. After I ate my meal I still had to wait for my salad. At that point I asked for it to go. I am not the type to ask for free things but really feel that the salad should have been on the house. Not the service I would expect.
Had a great time. We had reservations but had some last minute add-ons and Le Papagayo accommodated us wonderfully.
Went for the first time this past Sunday for happy hour with a group of 5 (mostly from out of town). We all ordered an appetizer plate (or 2) with cocktails and consensus from everyone was very positive from the food to the overall vibe. Ordered a couple dinners to go and received excellent reviews. The pulled pork was lean and the lamb chops with the cilantro agave sauce was divine and prepared perfectly.
Amazing brunch.. I have to add 36 more characters to post
Great service, great vibe. Thank you!
Hip, relaxed atmosphere, great drinks, live music. Food was amazing and service beyond reproach. Will be back for sure!
Great food and lovely ambience on the patio. The triplets (grandsons) loved the fries and we adults enjoyed all the food.
Nice happy hour evening - food and service were good
HAD THE RIBS DISH AND WHILE THE RIBS WHERE MEATY AND ADEQUATE IN SERVING PORTION THE SUACE WAS TOO SALTY FOR MY TASTE. ALSO ORDERED THE CALAMARI AND UNFORTUNATELY OVER FRIED OR FRYER OIL NEEDED TO BE CHANGED OUT. HOPE THIS FEEDBACK HELPS IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF THESE DISHES.
Loved our service! Food was yummy too and great cocktails.
6 of us having dinner, 5 were very good. Paella was so over cooked , shrimp and fish were dry and tough, rice had no moisture at all left in it. Certainly, would not recommend that.
Amazing food as always!! Zoe was a great server and made sure our glasses were full at all times! Managers do a great job of making sure tables are happy and that food is coming out fast and correct. We will definitely be back!
"Fine" would be the best word for our dinner experience - not bad but not great. Had 5 p.m . reservations and were seated right away (not many tables full outside) but after 10 minutes I got up to ask where our server was. Several minutes later someone came out and went to the table next to us who had been there quite a while after we were. Sigh.... Food was "fine" - husband's $23 filet stroganoff was very light on filet and heavy on the mushrooms. My vegetarian trio was again fine and my son's ahi was....yes, fine! Pleasant enough place but nothing great or even very good about it.
We had a great time and sat on the patio where we could have a conversation. The waitress was outstanding and he food was super tasty.
The food is outstanding the atmosphere is fun and it's one of our favorite places to go
Great food, great service and great music!!! What a fun night we had celebrating a birthday!!! Great memories!!! All generations in our Family highly recommend Le Papagayo for breakfast through dinner!!! You will enjoy it!!!
My husband and I went to Le Papagayo on a Thursday evening. Our waitress was friendly and answered all of our questions. Our food was delicious and we will be going back! Great music too!
Had a great time and good food. Customer service was great and welcoming. Awesome environment. Will be eating there again soon.
We LOVED it! This is our new go-to place for Happy Hour. We keep taking more and more friends here each week. The people are friendly, sitting outside is the best, and the food is delicious!
Aloha Saturday’s. Another positive experience at Le Pap, current ownership has done a great job. Happy hour everyday!
I love this place but coming with my friends the other night was pretty frustrating. It was very obvious they're trying to push people out due to reservations, etc. however, felt like there were WAY more tables taken by people who had been there longer than us and they were left alone - while it felt like every ten mins our waiter wanted to take our plates while still eating, etc. It was pretty disappointing and were going to spend more on drinks but decided to leave due to constantly being bombarded with staff questions.
Inside was very noisy
Recommend seating outside
Went to Le Papagayo for our anniversary. We ate outside and literally around a palm tree! Food was excellent and plentiful. Lemonade was the best except when I make it at home. Only minor gripe was having mashed potato in the bouillabaisse. Found out afterwards that coconut rice was available as a substitute (better). Waitress was terrific. Highly recommend.
This place was amazing! Awesome atmosphere as it’s right on the main drag in Encinitas and has a lot of outdoor seating. Highly recommend the location and the food as well! They even had a kids menu!
I feel like this place has really upped its menu game. Great drinks and food choices even for those avoiding the Glutens. We also had great service which improves any meal. We’ll be back more often.
Wow. What fresh and fabulous food and friendly, efficient service in such a great chill vibe to a backdrop of a fittingly chill band. We went for dinner and loved everything about it and every dish we had. Highly recommend the Papagayo Dynamite appetizer, and if you’re a Chilean seabass fan theirs will def not disappoint. And it indeed lives up to its ‘world famous sangria’. Delish. Must visit if you’re looking for a great meal and atmosphere. The outside tables in back with loungey seating under string lights is super cool.
Service wasn’t great, food was good but not anything to brag about
Great food. Everyone in our group had something different and all were pleased.
Can always depend on Le Papagayo to provide an entertaining night with great food.
GREAT service and GREAT food! Made our nice family dinner a very special one. It’s becoming one of our favorite go-to restaurants!
Great experience. Great food.
Excellent food, creative menu and great margaritas.
We ate outside so I wasn't too loud but we would not have been able to have a conversation if we sat inside when the band was playing.
We moved inside after dinner to listen to the band.
Service and food were great
Very enjoyable. Quite popular so reservations are a good idea but didn’t seem to be much of a waiting line either time we went. However, we dined a little early. We did outdoor seating both times. Because it is popular, they began (between our two recent visits, which were about a month apart) to limit seating to a two-hour time period. They mention it when they seat you. Although, we had plenty of time and it wasn’t an issue for us. I think for a group it might be. When dining with friends we like to extend our visit so not sure we’ll follow through on the idea of taking another couple. Wonderful food choices and everything we’ve had is delicious. Staff are friendly and helpful, but they are spread a little thin. Depending on where you are seated you might feel a bit close to adjacent diners. Our first visit was a little more spacious.
Papayayo is one of my favs. They have amazing food and a great set up on their back patio
Great food and service was excellent! We will definitely be back soon!
Very good food and wine. Liked being on outside patio and could still her music and have a conversation. The restaurant is a little too pricey to go there often. Thanks for the experience!
Le Papagayo is one of the best restaurants in San Diego that most never think of. I have been to breakfast and dinner there and it's outstanding. If you like Shrimp and Grits, their breakfast choice is legit! Service and atmosphere are great. Perfect for night out with friends.
