Insane flavors and view. You can't beat this place ! Make sure to get the mixed seafood grill and save room for one of the desserts. I recommend the hot brownie served with ice cream

The best place I ate while in Santa Teresa. Quite frankly, one of the best restaurants I have EVER eaten at. I'm not picky, but I like good food, and this was some of the freshest, most flavorfully prepared I've had. I enjoyed a wonderful coconut curry shrimp dish that was to DIE for. I even went back the next... More

We ate here on our second to last night in Santa Teresa and wish we would have come here sooner and more often! I had the mahi mahi dish and my husband had chicken. Both were huge and very good. We also had desert and sangria which were good as well. I didn't feel it was too expensive for what... More

This place as an incredible view and great food to go with it. They also made fantastic drinks. Just be prepared as this was likely the most expensive place we ate at! Our pitch of vodka/lemonade cost about $16. Two people can easily spend $100 here. But if you want great food and a beautiful view of the sunset its... More

A chalk board menu each night that is heavy on seafood (not a bad thing). But, the first night we visited Filet of Beef was on the menu. Questioning the quality the server convinced me to try it. I order it "rojo, rojo" or, very rare. I was concerned about the tenderness.... no worries. When it arrived, it was cooked... More

Definitely a place to go for a seafood meal and to watch the beautiful sunset. Dessertts are good too! Prepare to pay cash as well.

Best Margarita I have had in a long time! Delicious food prepared to order for our picky palates. The view is spectacular and well worth a trip up the hill to this vantage point to view the sunset... Awesome!!

We just returned from a one-week stay just outside Santa Teresa (at Pranamar Villas). On our last night, we wanted to try a restaurant in town; Brisa del Mar is what the hotel staff recommended ... and we were not disappointed. The hotel driver provided transportation - what a climb up the hill (turn at the Horizon Ocean View Hotel... More
