I recently visited ( 28 November) this place. We were 6 in total ( 2 kids). The restaurant has top views of the sea shore, a small marina and a very nice sunset. Small cozy and unpretentious atmosphere. The selection of dishes was good so it was dispointing to see the cooking somhow unmatching the rest. I ordered blackened tuna.... More

I think I may had my hopes up. This was recommended by two locals. We went fairly early on a Wed evening. And they were out of half their specials. How can you be out of your specials by 6:00? And there were only 5 tables of people. I know they like to keep only fresh fish. But again, I... More

There are only a few restaurant options during the rainy season and Las Brisas is one of them. We had two very good meals there last week. Standard fare - quesadillas, guacamole, shrimp tacos. My husband had a fantastic special off the black board which was like a paella. Drinks were also very nice- we had margaritas, piña coladas and... More

This authentic Costa Rican restaurant is right on the lovely sand beach of Playa Potrero. Delicious food and diverse menu items. Easy to have a very long leisurely lunch at this spot!

Had lunch at Las Brisas, food was not overly impressive...calamari app was very salty and rubbery, overcooked....mahi mahi "kimberly" entree is basically mahi mahi smothered with hollandaise sauce (sauce was broken). The fish was cooked to perfection and was tasty (fresh mahi is ALWAYS delicious). Overall, I had better meals elsewhere for less money. Lunch for 3 including the calamari... More

food was simply okay and not seemingly a great deal. I would not really recommend this place for a tasty bite.

We went there on our first day in playa potrero. The place looks like a regular beach front soda and the service was ok. I made the mistake of ordering a shrimp ceasar from the black board. It arrived, a sad plate of romaine kettuce upon which shrimps were laid out in a circle with some parmesan sprinkled on top.... More

This restaurant it's a rough diamond, a friend recommended this place and now is a must when we are in Guanacaste. Try for the special menu, the regular one is great but the other one has delicious and different options. The ceviche, the blackened tuna and the traditional shrimp rice are the best, I really recommend the place, it's not... More
