The food - amazing with huge portions (kind of too huge actually). The ambience would be nice at sunset, but we went after that (not interested in eating at 5pm) so it was less than wonderful - more of a bar with a terrace than a restaurant really.

Brisas del Mar is a must go-to when visiting Santa Teresa! It is up a hill with a sprawling ocean view, a perfect place for cocktails at sunset, the electric blue lemonade is my favorite! The food is just amazing! Whether you crave fresh fish or amazing steak they have it. Desserts are to die for! I spent my New... More

Absolutely great food and drinks as you sit and watch the sun set. Enjoy your steep drive to the top and the fun of parking. Park downhill so you can leave easily!! Best seafood anywhere and hours fresh.

The view from this restaurant is spectacular, especially if you go early and watch the sun set over the ocean. Make a reservation for around 5:30. If you are walking up the hill, it is a bit of a trek especially in hot and humid weather. The service, sangria and food were great and never did we feel rushed in... More

While vacationing in Costa Rica, we had the pleasure to eat at Brisas Del Mar. The food is so fresh and the drinks were so yummy, especially the Electric Lemonade. The restaurant itself has a such an awesome laid back yet refined vibe. But best of all is the view, if you're lucky enough to get a table at sunset... More

Great view, good food and a ridiculous sunset. Perfect. Make sure you get there before 6:00 to see the sun go down and leave room for dessert.

Great views and food, excellent for couples, very romantic, worth the hike to get there, and a pool if you get there early for the sunset view
