We came into town late on on Saturday evening. The owner of the place our 10 person group stayed at made arrangements with Brisas del Mar to stay open for us. The atmosphere was phenomenal and the food was fantastic

My boyfriend and I were in Santa Teresa for one week and decided to try this place one night. It is a little walk uphill but totally worth it. We got there just before Sunset and had a delicious cocktail in the seating area. The...More
