Dine indoors or out, in unusually beautiful settings, alongside a natural lagoon. Ristorante Pappagallo is one of the island's best dining venues, renowned for its menues variety and flair. If you factor in the welcoming ambiance, the sights and sounds you'll enjoy on your 10-minute drive from Seven Mile Beach to the heart of West Bay, the restaurant's exquisite setting on the edge of a natural lagoon in a bird sanctuary, and how you'll be greeted by the African Grey Parrot called Bogey to his friends, Humphrey to strangers, then the reasons for this top-rating become crystal clear.

Surrounded by dense vegetation and the rural sounds of the Caribbean countryside, Ristorante Pappagallo looks and feels like an upscale tropical outpost from an earlier era, its sturdy wooden structure supporting two huge thatch roofs and large beautifully-woven fans. Arriving after dark, you'll see the restaurant's lights reflecting in the lagoon teeming with silvery tarpon and sending out a golden glow into the velvety night.

You are thrown into a world of the exotic, even before reaching the front door! Then, as you enter the foyer, you are met at the front door by an African Grey Parrot, humorously called Humphrey Bogart, one of the oldest Pappagallo employees with over 30 years experience welcoming guests and posing for photos (especially with the little ones!) You will then immediately notice the inviting and well-stocked bar, decorated in an art-deco style, where customers can take pre-dinner cocktails or enjoy an after-dinner drink in a cool and inviting atmosphere.

Like many Italian restaurants, there is a strong sense of family about Ristorante Pappagallo (a word that means parrot in Italian). Not only has Bogey been welcoming patrons at the door for 25 years but many of the staff have also been there for some time, welcoming new and returning guests alike .
