Went to this restaurant several times, both for breakfast and dinner and never once was disappointed with the food and service. You can't beat the view from Brisas del Mar. While in Santa Teresa do yourself a favor and head up for sunset, have some cocktails and stay for dinner. Any of the fish dishes is delicious.

We loved it so much we went back there on our last night in Santa Teresa. We would highly recommend a... More

Excellent restaurant if you can manage a significant walk up a loose gravel road. I’m not sure if you can even reasonably drive up this hill. Fantastic views and a well-run restaurant are your reward for finding this place. I would suggest visiting during the daylight hours to take in the incredible view. We also went at night and that...

Yes they have this fantastic view but not so much so that they need to be at least twice the price of anything else in the area. It felt a bit tourist trappy. The food was just OK. The best thing there was their cat Lucy. Better sunset views with better prices are had right on the beach.

We arrived early and enjoyed a margarita just as the sun set. This is a lovely restaurant perched atop the hill with 360 degree views of the jungle, town and beach. The food was very good and the service was excellent.

Our hotel was on the hill below this restaurant. We walked up a few stairs and entered a beautiful deck surrounded by trees. We ate breakfasts and dinners there. Loved the menu, great wines and unique dishes. The owner always found the perfect table for us.

Brisas has a new Argentinian ownership that has brought this reataurant back to its former greatness. Please consider spending a sunset like no other followed by a delicious dinner from a diverse menu of seafood and meat. You will not be disappointed

Located near to my hotel, I discovered this at the end of my time in santa Teresa. The breakfast is great value and the view is breathtaking. The environment is great with tables sofas to relax and take in the spectacular views. Staff were great and service was excellent, relaxed and friendly.

This is one of my favorite dinner spots in Santa Teresa and Mal Pais. The owner and chef is amazing, and the food never disappoints. Menu is always changing, ranging from french cuisine to more Mediterranean selections as well. The sunset views are incredible, but we frequent this place once it is dark as well, as it has a very...
