We read reviews on this restaurant stating they had good seafood, particularly lobster. We were the only people in the restaurant, which in the states, is a bad sign; but Isla was quite deserted when we visited so we thought nothing of it. We ordered lobster bisque and received a thin tomato-based soup with a small lobster tail swimming in... More

Ordered a whole red snapper... I have more fish on a fish taco. It was very small, it was served with a few vegetables and cold dry rice. After leaving, I got a hot dog from a street vendor so I wouldn't have to go to bed hungry.

Nice quiet evening location- incredible staff, drinks were spot on. I had the grilled calamari - cooked perfect but under seasoned - side dishes were worthless (frozen broccoli n mixed can veg with rice .... Just ask them for some other side) my moms seafood pasta was Excellent. Everything cooked perfect . Once again what a nice friendly crew!!!

It's a pleasure to dine in Isla Mujeres. Overall, service is excellent and restaurant owners and workers are happy to serve you and want to make sure you have a great experience. The Maitre D' at Brisa's coaxed us to choose his restaurant over others by offering Margaritas on the house for our party. They never stopped trying to please... More

After you arrive in Isla off of the ferry, head north on Medina to Brisas. It is located on the beach side of the street and is an open air restaurant. I have been fishing there the last two years and after a catch I bring my fileted fish to the manager and have them prepare it three different ways.... More

We stopped in after work to have a simple meal of tacos and decided on the Arrachera tacos. We had a side ceasar salad, very good, ice tea and lemonade, great. The tacos were excellent, the meat was tender and wonderfully flavored. We sat inside, watched some soccer and relaxed. The staff was attentive. Great evening after a long day... More

They opened at 6 am so that us Canadians could watch the gold medal hockey game on their tvs with English satellite service. They serve a great breakfast (try spanish omelet and fruit plate) and pizza. Set right on the water, it is a place to watch the water traffic, close to the ferry. Great staff. Very accomodating.

On the morning that we were going to the southern part of the island near Dolphin Discovery we got off of the ferry at Puerto Juarez and were a little bit hungry. One of the first restaurants we came across was called Las Brisas. It was right on the bay in a great location and right next to the main... More

Great seafood. Lobster Kabobs are amazing. Coconut shrimp was the best I've ever had. Try the Brisas Grouper, it was fantastic. We went here twice. Only downside at night is that the tables near the water are too dark and the music can be a bit too loud.

Stopped off at Brisas Grill on our way to the ferry back to Cancun for a coctail. Turned into a romantic dinner on the beach with great food, good wine, cool breeze, and Mariaches to boot. Wine list was a little short but everything we ordered was good. Lobster was sweet and right out of the tank and the coconut... More
