Papaya is without doubt the best restaurant in the area. Although there are other good places to eat, nowhere came close to preparing the delicious dishes and fresh ingredients used here. On top of that, Papaya offers superb value for money (breakfast is only $5!)....More

The breakfast was okay, but all the other food was bad and expensive. $40 for an overcooked steak is upsetting. My husband had lobster and it was also overcooked. Both items were poorly seasoned. Mushy potatoes. Tiny dessert portion. The brownie had no flavor and...More

Informal dining in a beautiful relaxed environment. Serving super fresh seafood, steaks and vegetarian options. Live dinner music through high season Tuesdays and Saturdays. Breakfast and dinner specials daily (best value in town!) and Happy Hour with signature cocktails and local beers 2x1 Chef Hilda Rodriguez creates signature dishes including cocounut Mahi-Mahi, lobster with mango chili salsa, fresh seared sesame-crust tuna, Thai style coconut curries, and our famous Surf 'n' Surf.
