We stopped here for a snack. We each had a Fanta and split an order of their yummy fish n' chips. And not only are they tasty but they give you 5 pcs of fish and an ample serving of fries. If I only had enough time to go back there again I would.....Oh well next time !

We popped in for dinner just as two bus load of pub crawlers were leaving. It looked like they had a good time. We got a table right on the beach. The food was very good and the monitors were excellent! Very reasonably priced too.

Great local place for food and drinks. My husband and I went here for lunch one day and really enjoyed the location right on the beach. The passion fruit margarita I had was quite tasty and made with fresh passion fruit. The ceviche was very fresh and good. We enjoyed the location so much we came back for dinner another... More

Lovely spot on the beach a short walk from our rented town home; we have had a delicious dinner, and drinks and appetizers during the afternoon on a few occasions. Great fresh seafood, remarkable Mojito, and great guacamole dip with chips. Shrimp cocktail had a sauce to die for!

Spent the day here on the beach. Popped in for some shrimp and calamari. Both dishes were awesome. My fav was the garlic calamari.

Had lunch while lounging on the east corner of Playa Potrero. I had the Calamari in Garlic. What a great meal. They work at presentation as well. Ceviche was amongst the best we tried while in Costa Rica. The Shrimp and Rice was also tasty. Our gals fell in love with the mojitos.

This restaurant is a great Value. It's right on the ocean, and even though the beach isn't really a swimming beach, there are the constant breezes and view of the water. Food is quite good and very reasonable. Combing very good food, ambiance, and price, Las Brisas is a find!

Have eaten there a few times. Enjoyed the sunsets over Playa Potrero. Their menu features a lot of seafood you definitely want to ask the server "how much" as they can be pricey. Good mixed drinks, no draft beers though. Some things on the menu may or may not be available. All in all pleasant experience.

But you can beat their flavor and prices. We tried several items on the menu and they lacked substantial flavor. Patacones was bland, the seafood soup was so-so, they barely chopped the fish in the ceviche so it was difficult to consume. Their smoothies were delightful.

If you have money to waste, hours to dine and wish mostly to drink...this is your place. We were bitterly disappointed. This was supposed to be a 70th birthday dinner. Ha. We waited nearly an hour and a half to be served, I mean that, an hour and a half, with two small and hungry children, not to mention four... More
