Went there for dinner - great small, local place. It is NOT a 5-star place (you are NOT going to find that in Playa Flamingo).

We watched the sun set on a greyish beach from the patio at Las Brisas, and then the food came and the evening went downhill. If you like your calamari over-breaded and over-cooked, your nachos with lettuce, your shrimp cocktail served with Russian dressing, and your fish entree with a ketchup-based sauce, you won't mind. Unlike most Costa Rican restaurants, they do not include the sales tax in the price on the menu (which might be why one reviewer said different prices are charged for locals), so if you go there be sure to add 23% to the overpriced menu to account for the tax and the tip. Or go to a similar beach-front joint at Playa Brasilito, where the beach is nicer and the food tastes good (and the sales tax is included in the price).

A moonlit walk along the beach, very laid back and casual dinner at this beachside shack, excellent food (especially the seafood ceviche), ice cold Imperial and Pilsen, very friendly staff. This is Costa Rica.

Good food but menu a little high priced if you are trying to save a little.

We've eaten at Las Brisas several times in the past. In the past, the food was good but not great. This last time, we didn't even feel welcome. The waiter ignored us, didn't fill our water, but was friendly and helpful around the local ticos. I would never recommend that place to a non-tico.
