Everything prepared to order by local cooks. Brasilito is the real thing and this restaurant is just as authentic. You can eat under cover or on their outdoor garden overlooking the surf. However this location is directly on a well traveled street, so expect dust and noise. Order a smoothie if all you want is a snack. It's made from... More

Really enjoyed the simple and very flavourful food. I had a Mexican salad in a baked tortilla bowl....highly recommend! We returned in the morning and each had a Banana con Leche.....fresh fruit smoothie.....cold,... More

My wife & I recently visited here for lunch. We moved an outside table to a shady area and had a nice experience. The beach view, crashing waves and slight breeze was wonderful. I had fish tacos which were lightly breaded ,tempura style, and had 3 really nice pieces of mahi mahi with shredded white cabbage and a white sauce.... More

We loved the atmosphere! Food was delicious as well as the drinks. Don't miss the grilled mahi mahi. We shared several meals because it was large portions. Pina coladas are delicious and the hot fudge sundae was something to write home about!

Ate on the Hotel Brazilito patio on the sand overlooking the Brazilito beach. The waves were crashing, Margarita the dog became our dining companion, and we relaxed in the hammocks while we awaited our meal. We had the ceviche with hot platanos, the Asian salad, fish tacos, and shrimp fettucine washed down with a dark Bavaria. Everything was delicious. Watching... More

Great little restaurant and bar attached to a small hotel. They hooked us up with wifi and then proceeded to bring out great calamari, fish tacos, and a range of local dishes. It was all fantastic and we began to fear we would need to roll back to our lodging to work off all the great food. Nice staff, great... More

This restaurant was wonderful. We ate dinner there. We shared a wonderful fried shrimp appetizer and then split and incredibly delicious Asian salad with peanut sauce. We could not help ourselves and ordered a brownie with icecream for dessert. The food was wonderful and the breeze from the beach delightful. We went back for breakfast the next morning and it...

Gorgeous lunch here. Fish tacos best I've tasted and smoothies gorgeous. Close to the beach so sea view is optional. Reasonably priced. Staff helpful and very friendly, especially the owner!

We are staying in the area for 2 months and this has become one of our favourite spots for either breakfast or lunch. Today it was lunch, I had the Mexican Salad and my husband had the Asian Salad. We switched halfway and were both really impressed. They were both very tasty and fresh. Combined with a light beer, the... More
