The food was awful and overpriced. And while I understand that this is an outdoor restaurant, the cleanliness was very lacking (I saw numerous cockroaches running around the place). Access to the place and parking was also very difficult. All-in-all, not worth the effort to...More

Brisas Del Mar is on the side of a steep hill which can make it a bit difficult to access in the dry season when the gravel road gets loose and dusty (not a problem with 4wheel drive or an atv) but it's worth it...More

Excellent restaurant if you can manage a significant walk up a loose gravel road. I’m not sure if you can even reasonably drive up this hill. Fantastic views and a well-run restaurant are your reward for finding this place. I would suggest visiting during the...More

Yes they have this fantastic view but not so much so that they need to be at least twice the price of anything else in the area. It felt a bit tourist trappy. The food was just OK. The best thing there was their cat...More

We arrived early and enjoyed a margarita just as the sun set. This is a lovely restaurant perched atop the hill with 360 degree views of the jungle, town and beach. The food was very good and the service was excellent.

My dear sir, I doubt hardly your judgment which I find very managed to damage simply. I ask you to read all the good comments of people which knew how to appreciate our kitchen. I shall be curious to know what you ate! You appear to live here, but it is apparently your only opinion on tripadvisor. Surprising no!!! It is so easy to want to write such things, but however I invite you to come to meet me to being able to discuss it verbally.
