Love the food big time! Service can vary a lot. This year we got served all four times by Kevin. Great service and information about the meals. Can be a bit crowded and a bit noisy. Can take big companies. Serve the best warm brownies with ice cream in the bay.

We've been hearing about Brisas del Mar for several years, but didn't get to eat there until New Year's Day for the first time. The restaurant is on a patio suspended on the edge of a cliff overlooking the ocean, with spectacular views, if you time your reservations right, of sunset on the Pacific. The menu consists of all daily... More

Great place, great service, great view... this place is amazing. Our resort (Red Palm Villas) set up our rehearsal dinner here and everyone was so pleased with the choice. The tenderloin was the best our guests have ever had.

What a perfect way to enjoy an amazing Costa Rican sunset, sipping on a yummy Brisas del Mar! The menu had so many interesting, delicious-sounding options, it was hard to settle on our main!! The frangelico-infused chocolate torte was exquisite! Ambiance was great, service was stellar and we totally enjoyed the waiters.

The food is wonderful and fresh. They have great drinks and electric lemonaide after a hot dusty day hits the spot. It is a great place to see the sunset up on the hill and I am certain that when sunset isn't at 5 pm, it is nice to have dinner too! They do take reservations and I would recommend... More

my steak was incredible (as good as any fine steakhouse). My husbands fish was awesome. Every sauce that was anyone's plate, I could have sipped with a straw it was so good!

The location and atmosphere of the restaurant is beautiful. There was a good variety of dishes which all include fresh, local produce. The service was relaxed but still attentive and the food is served in good portions at a fair price. Well worth a visit.

I dont know where to start. It is up in the hills, it is beautiful and the seafood is excellent. This is one that you repeat not only every time you go but several times in a trip. In my Top 2 for Dinner.

Brisas del Mar has to be my favorite restaurant in the whole Santa Teresa area. While the local vibe in the sodas and low-key beach restaurants make for stiff competition, Brisas del Mar really takes the cake for the best, all around cuisine. They serve up delicious entrees mainly consisting of local sea food and local beef. You can taste... More
