I've been to this restaurant at least 10-15 times over the years (used to be Buenos Aires restaurant) By far, the best food in all of Santa Teresa. If you dont eat here (and watch the sunset from the best viewpoint in Santa Teresa) at least once, you are doing yourself a disservice. The food is excellent, the service is... More

My boyfriend had the best tenderloin ever! Very friendly service. Not very cheap. Make a reservation, because when we stayed in Mal Pais, it was very busy. The choice isn't huge, but there is fish, meat,... on the menu, so everyone will find something. Very big portions! So unfortunatly, I didn't had any place left for the famous hot fudge... More

We were told about the great food at Brisas but not about the walk about the hill! By the time we arrived at the restaurant, we were thirsty and ready to eat. In typical St. T's fashion, the restaurant could not be more casual...our waiter had on no shoes, a bathing suit and a tee shirt. He was extremely nice... More

The food - amazing with huge portions (kind of too huge actually). The ambience would be nice at sunset, but we went after that (not interested in eating at 5pm) so it was less than wonderful - more of a bar with a terrace than a restaurant really.

Brisas del Mar is a must go-to when visiting Santa Teresa! It is up a hill with a sprawling ocean view, a perfect place for cocktails at sunset, the electric blue lemonade is my favorite! The food is just amazing! Whether you crave fresh fish or amazing steak they have it. Desserts are to die for! I spent my New... More

The food at Brisas is more pedestrian than other excellent restaurants in Santa Teresa. Very nice people, great view.

Absolutely great food and drinks as you sit and watch the sun set. Enjoy your steep drive to the top and the fun of parking. Park downhill so you can leave easily!! Best seafood anywhere and hours fresh.

The view was great even though that evening the sunset wasn't good at all. Make a rez for sure, probably about 30-45 minutes before sunset. Have a drink and order some great food. Had the sea bass and it was great. My girlfriend had the mix seafood and it was awesome. The staff was helpful and friendly, didn't feel rushed... More
