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

Right on the beach in Potrero. Great fresh ceviche and cold beer. Nice atmosphere and helpful staff. Would definitely recommend and wish we could have come back a 2nd time!

The food was good but not constantly good, mostly American style food and a lot more money than the local soda round the corner. Vehicles are constantly driving on and off the beach in from of the restaurant. Some people even park next to their table! Staff are nice and work hard.

The food was fair. We were shown and encouraged to order off the "special" menu presented on a board. The ceviche was our least favorite of all that we tried at the various other local restaurants. We felt that we were dubbed as "tourists" that could be charged more. There were seven of us in our group and the analysis... More

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
