Typical Isla restaurant. Offers the usual fare of pizza, Mexican and seafood. I had the fish filet with Tequila sauce. It was very good.

We took friends from the island to this restaurant. Total bill was 988 pesos for 4 dinners. We ordered arrechera steak dinners (2), sirloin steak dinner (1), arrechera burger (1), and 5 drinks. The arrechera steak was tasty. However, I do think the price was too high compared to Bastos Grill and other places on the island. Dinners came with... More

This was our 7th day in Cancun. Prior to coming to Isla Mujeres, we've eaten at numerous restaurants for lunch and dinner in the hotel district of Cancun. We wandered into this restaurant on whim for lunch. I had a fish filet Vera Cruz style and my wife had a pasta dish. This was the BEST meal we've had in... More

The wife and I decided to try Brisas Mexicana because the guy out front practically begged us to try them. We sit down and I order the Ribeye and the wife ordered some fish dish with a tequila sauce on it. The service was fine and the food just ok. We sit there enjoying the evening and just people watching... More

Coconut shrimp either as a main or appetizer is a winner! I only wish I had taken a pic of my favorite meal which was the seafood stuffed calamari - it was incredible with a mushroom sauce over the top - combine it with the rice underneath and it's like a risotto. It came to the table and both couples... More

The 5 tail grilled lobster and shrimp cerveche was excellent, as well as the seafood stuffed red snapper. Best snapper Ive ever had. The staff went above and beyond anything we expected and I highly recommend this restaurant. My son asked if they had ice cream floats and I had found out after the fact that the owner actually ran... More

The seafood on the seafood pizza was the best ever! The pizza was loaded with fresh prawns, squid and octopus. Loved it!

Ordered snapper and surf and turf. Steak was ok- cut seemed expensive for price. Pins colada was delicious. Nice atmosphere comfortable. service was good. Compared to others was pricey so we will look around for the next few days. Like everywhere here cash only.

We had a nice meal at this place, but it was spoiled by unsanitary conditions in the rest room. No TP, no toilet seat. Hey Brisa Mexicanas it's 2016. I was used to conditions like this 30 years ago in Mexico, but I haven't seen anything like this lately in a restaurant that caters to the tourist trade. Come on... More

When I come to Isla I go to Brisas at least once and have never been disapointed. They have lobster tails ( just a few and fresh) which you may chose from and then they are grilled, where you can see them. The show on Hildago helps pass the time and the result is delicious. The lobster tail was so... More
