Great hangout on the beach in Potrero

We walked a bunch on the beach, got a massage from a local and finished plenty of water over the hot afternoon and were looking for a place to sit in the shade and drink. Enter Las Brisas- like an oasis offering respite to the weary and parched desert survivor. So it wasn't that bad- but we had... read more

Have been going to Las Brisas for years. Stopped for late afternoon drinks and ordered a shrimp cocktail from the specials board. This is a major warning: Make sure you ask for the price before ordering. Rec'd an average size 6 shrimps (not jumbo) and was charged $30.00 for it....complained (owner Douglas Peralta not there) and they reduced price to... More

My mother and I eat at Brias and ordered Quesadillas, shrimp and chicken. My chicken was actually tuna and when I asked about it they denied the quesadillas was tuna. The menu stated my meal would come with chips and salad and it didn't come with my meal. My mother enjoyed her shrimp quesadillas which cost $65 with her drink.... More

Our favorite place for a drink in Potrero and the food is good as well. Directly on Potrero Beach only a few feet from the water. They had the biggest and best margaritas in the area. We had fun with the friendly staff. Katy helped us a lot with our Spanish and we hopefully helped her as well with her... More

Asking for a place to have lunch this name came up as a recommendation, famous for its Brisas' Rice. If I have to describe this place in three words those would be: old, simple, humble. Taste decoration is not on the menu, neither furniture in good shape. Service is very friendly. Beach front view is amazing. The menu has a... More

Las Brisas is right on the water. It is an awesome spot. I was there one day when a big wave crashed and knocked my dogs against the bar, but no real harm was done. I eat there once a week and usually have the casado or the fish and chips. It is rather pricey for us locals and the... More

We enjoyed our first day in Playa Potrero, and we were able to walk to this cute bar on the beach. Nothing like a first beach day to end like this. The food was good, the only thing we wished were that the prices were written on the specials board, and that tax and gratuity were included. Overall we would... More

The actual bar/restaurant is not much to look at, however, it is located in a most beautiful spot. Surprisingly really top-notch food and a huge selection. The wait staff is very friendly and responsive - speaking both espanol and ingles. Sit outside facing the cove - and such a beautiful view. The chicken fajitas are really good (for Costa Rica)...

The shrimp were so big and delicious, arroz con pollo to die for. We're pretty sure they saw us as gringos, because the price was too high!
