my steak was incredible (as good as any fine steakhouse). My husbands fish was awesome. Every sauce that was anyone's plate, I could have sipped with a straw it was so good!

“Best meal in Santa Teresa”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

The location and atmosphere of the restaurant is beautiful. There was a good variety of dishes which all include fresh, local produce. The service was relaxed but still attentive and the food is served in good portions at a fair price. Well worth a visit.

“OMG Eat Here! The view, the food”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

I dont know where to start. It is up in the hills, it is beautiful and the seafood is excellent. This is one that you repeat not only every time you go but several times in a trip.

In my Top 2 for Dinner.

“Best Place in Town”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

Brisas del Mar has to be my favorite restaurant in the whole Santa Teresa area. While the local vibe in the sodas and low-key beach restaurants make for stiff competition, Brisas del Mar really takes the cake for the best, all around cuisine.

They serve up delicious entrees mainly consisting of local sea food and local beef. You can taste the quality in every bite. I had the beef (which I believe was a sirloin) and it was one of the finest prepared steaks i've ever tasted! My wife had the fish and claimed that it was also incredibly good.

What makes this place even better is the vibe. You start by driving up a steep, dirt hill to the small parking lot. On walking in, you pass the swimming pool (which you're welcome to take a quick dip in). You're greeted by one of the servers (hopefully you get Liz, she's great!!!), and you take a seat on a nice large couch with genuine wood table. Truly a fantastic way to relax

Oh and it has a great view! DO NOT MISS THE SUNSET FROM BRISAS! There's going to be other vacationers with that same thought though so make sure you call ahead for reservations especially during the busy season!

Hopefully you add Brisas del Mar to any of your Santa Teresa vacationing plans - it is NOT to be missed. Rico!

“Amazing View”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

Great place. Menu is limited but the quality of the food and the view from the hills above Santa Teresa make up for it. Go, enjoy
