Sunday brunch with a beautiful view

Great food, variety and value for an all-you-can eat, restaurant with a spectacular ocean view. Delicious Mexican seafood dinners and great traditional brunch options. Walking distance to main beach, area hotels and downtown.

The food is great, the salads are HUGE and if you are lucky, you'll get a table with a view. It's $7 to valet and the short walk to the front of the restaurant is epic.

We wanted a comfortable yet refined atmosphere along with some unique entres. Las Brisas exceeded our expectations. Everyone was very hospitable, starting with the lovely maitre'd. The food was incredibly delicious and wonderfully presented.... More

Great views but the prices are outrageous considering it is simple Mexican food. We stopped for happy hour drinks. Good service and ok prices for drinks.

Excellent view- Great food. Decided to eat here prior to a show at the Laguna Playhouse, which is within walking distance. You can leave your car parked here with valet for $25.00 and then retrieve it after the show. Otherwise, they have a $7.00 fee for valet with 3 hr time limit for dinner. Awesome view of Laguna coastline and... More

Still one of my top 3 in California. The old adage "the better the view the worse the food" does not apply here. I was staying next door at the Laguna Inn in 1981 when I made the decision to re-locate to Cali. Perfect setting for some of the best Mexican themed food I've ever had.
