We stopped here for lunch, whilst on a a day tour. The lunch was excellent in the open air on the beach. It is worth a visit. We watched local boys fishing in competition with Pelicans whilst having our drinks and lunch. We had Ceviche and Fresh Red Snapper!

expecting bar food, i was pleasantly surprised. i loved my seabass (corvina), while my wife and son shared the Arroz Brisas (paella with a local flare). that was amazing. I recommend ordering fro the daily special menu rather than from the generic bar menu.

The beach and margaritas. Must I say more? This little spot has been on the beach for years and it's my friends favorite for fish and chips. For me, it's the margaritas but something to eat is highly recommended if you are going to have a margarita. :)

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.

I concur with the tourists trap comments. The food is average but they will over charge you for off the menu items. First avoid the place, if not ask for prices and negotiate. View is nice and it is pleasant to sit outside.

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 food was acceptable but overpriced. We were... More

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.

First thing it is not the easiest place to find but worth the effort. It also looks like a place you may not want to frequent, but do it, it is worth the trip. 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.
