About Us

El Cantina del Papagayos was opened in 1982 in Agua Fria, In June of 1983 the name and owners changed hands and Papagayos was born. It was a very small restaurant with only 11 tables but very popular with locals and visitors alike. In 1994 the outside patio was added which accommodated an additional 8 tables. We enjoyed 22 years at this location before moving to the Lake Arrowhead Village in 2005, where we took over the pavilion building which is the only remaining building from the original Village built in 1922. In 2006 our Lakeside patio and Cantina was added and has become a summer favorite! We hope that you will sit back, relax and enjoy the view here at Papagayos. Salude!
