Beautiful view of the beach

The beach was lovely. We saw monkeys in the trees above the restaurant which was exciting. The servers were extremely nice. The food was average but a nice, relaxing place to hang out in the afternoon and have a cold cerveza.

Stopped by last night for an order of tuna carpaccio. The platter arrived partially frozen and as it defrosted, blood collected on the plate. My husband's fish and chips was good but I doubt if we will return. I was very disappointed, the tuna was delicious and fresh last year, not the case this year.

Stopped here while quadding with friends. This is a great spot for local CR food. Try the fish tacos, fabulous. Reasonably priced. Beach is stone so you are not likely to swim. Mauricio was our server and was very friendly.

It was a nice spot to hang out by the beach, but their pricing appeared a little sketchy. When we asked the price on a chalkboard special it was like they were making them up based on the customer. We opted to order off the menu. The presentation and flavour of the food was good, but was dry and over... More

We ordered two plates from the chalkboard menu without pricing. We asked the price and we receive a nice smile. The plates was gorgeous and good but not exciting. The environment is very nice on the beach for dinner. When we receive the bill we understood the nice smile we had by the server (77$ usd). This price was too... More

Food took FOREVER! I had the shrimp tacos which were good. Another person had shrimp cocktail which was good. Everything else was just ok. The biggest issue was how long everything took. Avoid the fajitas not their specialty at all!

If you want an authentic local dive, this is it. Decent bar food and cold beer. If you're looking for something more, this is not your place. But once you get there, you don't want to leave.

This is one of our favorites near Playa Flamingo for a couple years. Fish Tacos are a go to. We did try the mahi mahi Kimberly, the whole Red Snapper and the Bacon Wrapped Shrimp off the Specials Board and enjoyed all! You cant beat the sunset and cold Imperial!

We had just spent the day travelling to the area from San Jose and selected Las Brisas since it was close (walkable) from where we were staying. The food was hot, service prompt and accommodating for 5 of us. I can't recall what any of us had, so it obviously wasn't superb or our best meal while in the area,... More
