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

Great place. Menu is limited but the quality of the food and the view from the hills above Santa Teresa make up for it. Go, enjoy

My wife and I had dinner here. The views were breathtaking. Great for an early evening dinner to watch the sunset. Food was good and service was okay too. Definitely worth a shot because the sunset was awesome.

One of the ten best restaurants I have ever been to. Extremely thoughtful food, that was creative, but by no means eccentric. Great food at an incredible value. It's weird saying a $15 entree place is a value in Costa Rica, but the food was as good as anything I have had in the SF Bay area, 1/2 the price... More

We had dinner here in the pouring rain. It was amazing! Amazing seafood, great drinks, great service... The mixed seafood grill was phenomenal. Dessert was great. Just be sure to have a cab drive you up the hill. It's a no-joke hike to the top of the hill.

The food is legendary, tasty, fresh, well priced, the menu is diverse enough to keep me coming back, if I lived in this town this would be one of my favorite spots for dining. If... More

We heard great things about this restaurant so maybe the hype was too much. The food was vey good, but over priced. Only 6 calamari for an appetizer? Come on! My sea bass was over breaded, but my wife's teriyaki tuna was great. Our friend's tuna wrap was fabulous and they liked their entrees. You have to go just prior... More
