Over two winters this has been my favorite dining and Margarettaville hangout. Everything from the sea, octopus to sea bass fish and chips will never disappoint. At high tide you may be seated within 50 feet of surging currents, farther out waves will be heard crashing. Consider going at sunset, stay as lights across the bay come on.

What great beachfront restaurant/bar! We took a stroll from our hotel, Bahia Del Sol, to check out our surroundings. We brought our kids down for lunch and some drinks. Wow! We ordered chips and guacamole, mixed cerviche, and the "special" seafood plate. I could not say enough how fresh and plentiful the cerveche was. The fish, shrimp, octopus, and other... More

We live in Potrero half time. Las Brisas is our go-to place for lunch. They have the best fish and chips in the area, and my husband loves their chicken fingers, fried just right. The items on the regular menu are not too expensive. If you get something off the daily menu (written on a white board), the prices are... More

We stayed for a week at Stef surf and could walk to this little gem. Yummy food and very chill atmosphere. So nice to have the salty breeze while you have an authentic meal!

Las brisas has been around forever and it is my go to place when I come to Costa RIca. I love that it is right on the beach. You get the nice breezes while you enjoy a cocktail and I love to go during the day. It really kicks into gear at night, especially ladies night which has been a... More

Great little place for fresh seafood. On the beach at north end of Potrero. Much better than what I was expecting.

Reviewed a year and a half ago and the shrimp was the best around. The quality of food on the whole menu has drastically declined. Would no longer recommend. I did notice there are several restaurants being built in the area and it is getting more touristy.

We only ordered Imperial beer and margaritas, but they were delivered timely and were served cold. The service was good and we had s good time. We will return.

I would never go back to this place. It was definitely one of the worst restaurants I've eaten in. The waitress was not friendly and acted like she couldn't care less if we were there or not. The place itself is okay since it's on the beach, although Playa Potrero is not really a nice beach. The Mahi Mahi fillet... More

We choose gambas with garlic and some local beer. We payed far too much, but I have to admit that the lunch and the sight over the Pacific were great.
