Our family of 5 had a delicious meal at Las Brasitas. The open air atmosphere was nice and the margaritas were great! Jimmy and Manuel (I think?) were so friendly and provided great service!

Easy parking, great ambiance, good service and the food was great. Had the Las Brasitas Special. My wife had quesadilla and tacos al pastor. Really enjoyed a pitcher of red wine sangria as well. Ended up coming back a second time because we enjoyed it so much. It's not cheap but not really pricey either. The quality to price ratio... More

Enjoyed the ribeye. Also had the Seabass in avocado sauce. Both excellent. A little pricey by Costa Rican standard but average by the USA standards.

Ate late lunch with 6 people. Absolutely delicious food and friendly service. Tacos, nachos, burritos were wonderful. Would come back - fresh & delicious especially the pork (el pastor). Recommended!

I went with my wife for dinner and is good, clean, great location but the food needs more flavor to be mexican style. They don't offer any kind of spicy. The prices are regular, not cheap but less expensive than Hotels in the zone.

I had the best Pastor here! We were there on a Thursday evening so it was not very busy. The service was a little slow but we were not in a rush so not a big deal.
