What great beachfront restaurant/bar! We took a stroll from our hotel, Bahia Del Sol, to check out our surroundings. We brought our kids down for lunch and some drinks. Wow! We ordered chips and guacamole, mixed cerviche, and the "special" seafood plate. I could not say enough how fresh and plentiful the cerveche was. The fish, shrimp, octopus, and other... More

We went here during off season and obviously look like tourists. They have off-the-menu items on a blackboard. I asked the waitress the cost of each of the dishes we ordered ahead of time, but what was reflected on the final bill was far more expensive than what she had told us. We paid $150 USD for three dishes, a... More

The two of us wanted to eat something small and fresh. Ceviche deemed us the right thing in a bar on the beach. Corvina was on the menu with a price. Octopus was on an extra-menu without a price. We ordered Octopus considering that it is normally a little bit more expensive than Corvina -- but not the double. The... More

This place is a must see. Right on the beach with awesome views of Playas Flamingo. The food was delicious and priced right. Our server was great and very attentive to our needs. We will defiantly be back!!

The view is beautiful and the drinks are great! The food was ok, and the staff was not as friendly as we had received at many other restaurants while vacationing in Costa Rica! Prices were a little high compared to other local places we had been. But, the pina colada was amazing!

We ate here our first night in Costa Rica at the end of September and order off their specials menu. The four of us all got something different and the food was good, drinks were great, and pricing was good. Great view

The food was so good we ate here twice. Friendly service and the waiter / waitress actually came back a time or two to check on us to see if we needed anything else! All reasonably priced too. I recommend the Ostions (Scallops) but ask them to be well cooked until slightly brown. they serve them with a delicious sauce,... More

Local friendly staff. The specials board was explained, and I inquired about the price of the ones I was interested in, since there were no prices list. The waiter offered that there were only two lobsters left. He had no takers. Nobody at our table was interested. However, two of us ordered the Arroz Brisas... a seafood paella of sorts.... More

It is always a fun thing to eat out in a restaurant that is so close to the beach. Sit down, have a drink and relax then order some of their very good fish cook in Costa Rica's style. I have been going to Potrero for at least 12 years and went to Las Brisas so many times either it... More
