I visited this restaurant on the Guanica broadwalk two weeks ago and found it small and with few tables, unlike those I have visited in “La Parguera” and “Combate”. The owner is an excellent host that welcomes you with great joy. The owner is also the bartender and waiter. All tables were full, which was the main reason to enter the restaurant (I think if the place is busy it’s have to be good). The atmosphere of the place is like the ones on the fishing village of Piñones in the Metropolitan shore of the Island. The bar has a giant TV screen where you can watch videos selected by the owner, the local people apparently are those who visit the place in regular terms. The menu is very limited, since it has an offer for kids and snacks to choose from are few, also serve soups and broths. From the menu you can choose: Lobster grilled mahi-mahi fillet stuffed with seafood, octopus salad or queen conch fritters with a companion of typical Puerto Rican. Request the appetizers: seafood turnover, “surullitos”, fish dumplings and “wings of the sea”. The wine list is limited. The food will arrive fresh to the table in about 30 minutes. All these details are overlooked when savoring the delicious taste of fresh fish and seafood. Again, I get disappointed when I ask the owner for dessert and he answers that they do not have any desserts after such a great meal. Prices are moderate between $ 10 and $ 30 plus government taxes (I.V.U.), no parking or valet parking and is a rich gastronomic adventure with a breathtaking view of the Bay of Guanica for those seeking to leave the city and find typical food from a seafood restaurant in a small town. It was good to know that “Brisas del Mar” accept debit cards, VISA and Mastercard. The restaurant's phone is 787-821-6372, the owner identified himself as just "Nando" and the restaurant is open from Friday to Sunday from 4:30 pm until midnight. It’s is a three stars place with the cleanest restrooms in the whole Broadwalk.

Great food. Kind of expensive and need cash to pay, but food was great and the owners were super nice. I recommend the sortido so you get a sampling of Puerto Rican fritters such as sorrullitos, empanadas, tostones, and more.

Delicious food, great service, fun night. This place is abandoned during the day but comes alive at night. Host Nando is lovely and warm and welcomed us into his restaurant. Take his recommendations - he suggested the Captain Fish which I've never had before but was one of the most fresh and delicious fish I've ever had. Very unsuspecting place... More

We came here with a group of six and had a fantastic dinner. We shared the appetizer combo, and split various empanadillas (which were much larger than expected...almost a meal in of themselves!). Several of us had the fish fillet in tomato sauce, which was flaky and full of flavor. We also ordered the mixed seafood and rice stew, which... More

This is a nice place but lacks overall ambiance. And although the food is very good it is extremely pricey. I had ordered the risotto with escargot and it was more to the resemblances of rice and sauce, while flavorful I was disappointed in it's consistency.. My husband had the scallops,they were excellently prepared and the presentation was appealing. We... More

Food, really good. Prices a bit high for what you are served. Lots of birds flying around the dining area.

If you're around the Guanica area and/or staying at Copamarina definitely go here! Try the masitas de pescado and bolitas de yuca! The owner is very friendly and makes you feel at home! Great prices and value for excellent seafood!

We drove into Guanica on a Thursday night and Brisas del Mar was the only place open. The owner was very friendly and we sat at the end of the bar. The gentleman next to us turned out to be his father and he and my companion enjoyed conversing. While drinking a couple of the local beers we ordered food.... More

I am the owner's brother, who lives in Chicago for 20 years. My favorite ritual at Brisas is to order the Capitan (Captain in English) fish, which is a catch from far out at the sea. Because it is so hard to fish, many restaurants in the coast, limit themselves to Red Snapper (Chillo in Spanish). If you want to... More
