Great stop on the way back to resort

We were driving from Playa Grande back to the Riu after surf lessons and stopped in for a snack. We found it a great place. Nothing super but just a casual bar. Had a couple beers, tacos and Cokes. After we couldn't find our way back to the Monkey Trail we went back and although the staff had no... read more

Las Brisas can make a mean drink (or four) -- some of the best I had in Potrero. The french fries were also better than most; probably because of the extra salt one will crave after a hot day in the sun. They are short staffed, but that's probably how they can afford to stay in business so just kick... More

Go to downtown Potrero and turn left to the beach. This is where you'll find Las Brisas - come for a beer or two or for a full meal. You can't go wrong with the local casado dishes for lunch, or the gigantic whole red snapper for dinner. Definitely a place to visit to enjoy a tico treasure...

I love this place! Right on the beach, with good food and great drinks. It is a good way to refresh yourself after a warm afternoon on the beach!

While staying in in Casa del Sol, Playa Potrero/Playa Penca my husband and I ate here often. It was lovely sitting at a table in front of Playa Potrero watching the sun set. One night there was even fire works across the Bay. The fish was very fresh and cooked to perfection as was the chicken. Service was excellent. I... More

Had a relaxing and enjoyable meal. Friendly staff and good food. Lemonade was amazing! We ordered from the menu and we were not disappointed. Prices were very reasonable. Good music too! A nice spot to watch the sun go down and the lights across the water come on!

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.
