We had a reservation for 7:30 and had to wait till about 7:45 to be seated. After being seated we did get to order our drinks right away, but had to wait about 30 minutes before ordering. We ended up having the mixed grill which was alright, but it took 2 hours from our reserved time to get our food.... More

The best view in town. The seared tuna was phenomenal, and came with one of the great slaws ever. Passionfruit cheesecake is not to be missed.

If you're having pricier meals in Santa Teresa, you're going to be eating a lot of mahi mahi, which Brisas does a very nice job with. But you'll primarily want to come here for the view, which is stunning. the staff is super friend -- almost too friendly, considering it can be a very long wait to be seated, order,... More

Went here with a party of eight which they were happy to accommodate. Sadly we got there too late for sunset but have heard its spectacular. Was good for star gazing though. The restaurant is attached to a hotel and there is a pool 'within' the restaurant. I image if you went for drinks before sunset you could use it... More

I'll keep this short and sweet: Not only does Brisas del Mar have an unrivaled view of the whole coastline, but the cocktails are fantastic. We have tried to recreate some of the cocktails we had there once we returned home...recipes we will never forget. Apart from the view and the drinks, the food was overwhelmingly good. I had the...

We had breakfast at Brisas del Mar a few times as we were staying at Hotel Buenos Airies. The french toast and banana pancakes were amazing and worth going for. We had dinner one night at Brisas del Mar. We started with the tuna wraps which were very good (and a large appetizer...big enough to share). I had the tenderloin..It... More

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
