We have been coming here for more than 20 years and we will keep coming back. Great bar food... the empanadillas are home made, steaming hot, and truly the best we have ever had. Mofongo is good, but the asopao de langosta is to die...More

I highly recommend this restaurant. It’s a little hole in the wall. The decor is simple, but the seafood is spectacular. I had the Captain fish, a local delicacy. One the fish dishes I have ever had. Nice bar full of locals.

Terrible service. The waiting time was too long and the quality of food very poor. Not recommend. Unfortunately the worse culinary experience

Don't be fooled by the casual/"chinchorro" ambiance. The food is excellent! Ordered the octopus salad, which was exquisite, & the churrasco stuffed mofongo with shrimp with guava sauce which was also great!! Waitress was kind and attentive. Prices were reasonable. Very delicious bday experience :)....More

This place caters to local folks, and feels very much like a home cooking place. I had the whole red snapper. My wife had the mofongo with shrimp. Both were good, and we would definitely go back next time we're in Guanica.

Great place to hang out, enjoy a cool drink and quick bite to eat. Alternatively, you can try a heavier plate -- home made! Try the "trifongo" with your choice beef, chicken or shrimp. Delish! Great prices for yummy puertorrican comfort food. The service maybe...More

I'll throw out there that I'm not a big fan of Puerto Rican cruise. For me, it's too sweet and bland. So I wasn't having high hopes visiting this place. First, the seating area was comfortable and there were plenty of fans. Some would say...More

Hi! I'm reviewing Brisas del Mar across from the Boardwalk, in Guánica. They don't have or serve escargot, risotto nor ice cream in their menu. I am pretty sure that in any of my reviews I mention such things. Thank you... More

I visited this restaurant on the Guanica broadwalk two weeks ago and found it small and with few tables, unlike those I have visited in “La Parguera” and “Combate”. The owner is an excellent host that welcomes you with great joy. The owner is also the bartender and waiter. All tables were full, which was the main reason to enter the restaurant (I think if the place is busy it’s have to be good).
The atmosphere of the place is like the ones on the fishing village of Piñones in the Metropolitan shore of the Island. The bar has a giant TV screen where you can watch videos selected by the owner, the local people apparently are those who visit the place in regular terms.
The menu is very limited, since it has an offer for kids and snacks to choose from are few, also serve soups and broths. From the menu you can choose: Lobster grilled mahi-mahi fillet stuffed with seafood, octopus salad or queen conch fritters with a companion of typical Puerto Rican. Request the appetizers: seafood turnover, “surullitos”, fish dumplings and “wings of the sea”. The wine list is limited. The food will arrive fresh to the table in about 30 minutes.
All these details are overlooked when savoring the delicious taste of fresh fish and seafood. Again, I get disappointed when I ask the owner for dessert and he answers that they do not have any desserts after such a great meal.
Prices are moderate between $ 10 and $ 30 plus government taxes (I.V.U.), no parking or valet parking and is a rich gastronomic adventure with a breathtaking view of the Bay of Guanica for those seeking to leave the city and find typical food from a seafood restaurant in a small town. It was good to know that “Brisas del Mar” accept debit cards, VISA and Mastercard. The restaurant's phone is 787-821-6372, the owner identified himself as just "Nando" and the restaurant is open from Friday to Sunday from 4:30 pm until midnight.
It’s is a three stars place with the cleanest restrooms in the whole Broadwalk.
