Food here is pretty good overall, but it's rather pricey for the area. Service was great, and the bartender/waiter was excellent.

Stopped here on an ATV tour. Great food and drinks! Large cups and good quality liquor. Friendly staff and decent prices. Dont expect large crowds here.

We were excited to have a nice lunch on the beach and relax enjoying the beautiful view of Potrero Beach. But to start it off the waitress was less than pleasant and when we decided that we didn't want to spend $9 for a cocktail she treated us with even less enthusiasm.

The restaurant has a large menu. We have frequented Las Brisas many times and gave not had a bad meal yet. The restaurant is on the beach with great views of Potrero Bay. You cannot go wrong eating here.

Food was good, staff friendly and you eat right on the beach. Building is original, covered roof, open sides building built in 1950 and relatives of... More

Cute weathered-wood restaurant set on the far north side of the beach. Staff was very nice and laid-back and the drink selection was nice. The seafood and fish was yummy. The deck is shaded so was nice escape after time on the beach. Also we came back here to carry out dinner which was good too.

This was a cute little bar. Cool little tables with tree trunk stools outside and decent priced beers. Nice spot to check out the sunset, although not my fave, I'll admit.
