“Dinner on the beach , what can I say!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

Our first night in Playa Potrero we went looking for a local restaurant.... and we came upon this gem.... after parking we were led to a table under an tent right at the edge of the beach, literally 20 feet from the breaking waves. The owner welcomed us to our table, and from there on out the service from him and his staff was excellent. Our party had some of the best seafood (Red Snapper, Pacific Lobster, various shrimp dishes) that we have ever had, which is something to say since we live on the coast of Maine where fish is our staple. The dinner was finished off with flaming deserts ( banana and pineapple).... a wonderful evening and a great meal

“Excellent tuna Sashimi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014 via mobile

Based on recommendations from friends we stopped by Las Brisas solely to try the tuna sashimi. It was awesome and a large portion.

“Classic rustic beach bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014

Located right on the beach, Las Brisas is the penultimate beach bar - good basic, local food, fresh seafood, cheap beer and fruit smoothies, you couldn't ask for more. There is no pretense here, just a concrete floor, thatched roof, bar stools and plastic chairs; nothing to impede the warm, ocean breeze, pink sunset nor tropical ambiance. Highly recommended in my book, but don't expect gourmet fare.

“Sunset”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

Watched the sunset from a different viewpoint at Playa Potrero. Was OK but not as spectacular as the ones at the Beach House. The mahi mahi, fries and salad was good. Bets Margaritas in Playa Potrero.

“Awesome place with great food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

The restaurant was recommended to us the first day we arrived for vacation.
The food was fantastic. (Best fish tacos I've ever had, great ceviche ), the blended fruit drinks were amazing, and the sunsets from here took my breath away.
We ended up going 3 times while in Costa Rica. Loved it!
