Las Brisas is most noted for their great Sunday brunch and the wonderful views. It's an old school restaurant with very professional wait staff. I needed a break from the pressure of work, so on a typical SoCal spectacular day I took the day off, took the top off the sports car and convinced my... read more

Fall in love again at the Las Brisa in Laguna Beach. Best time you will ever have with your clothes on. We sat outside at one of the tables with a beautiful view of the Pacific ocean. It was heavenly, affordable, and great food - what more could you want? Our total bill for three people was $41 including a... More

The biggest decision is what type of seafood you're in the mood for the same for cocktails. After dinner a cool band was playing in the bar. Great night.

Had a reunion of 22 ladies for lunch and had a wonderful time. Dante' was great, patient and attentive to our needs. The food was terrific and the service great, which isn't easy with that many people at once. The manager came to check on us and was very charming and welcoming. We were a bit noisy (22 women all...

Came here for a family Luncheon following a funeral. The beauty of the view from the wall of windows erased any lingering sadness. Had a wonderful family meal here with Dante as our waiter. He was awesome. Putting up with some older picky family members and even packing some jalapeño cornbread muffins for them to go. They were charmed. So... More

We have a party of 10 and sat next to the window with an outstanding view of the sunset! As beautiful that was the meal was even better. One in our party arrived late and they sped up the meal for the late person to arrive just after the rest of us were served. Most of us had fish and... More

We had not been to Las Brisas in years. The view was still wonderful but the food and service have changed from standard Mexican restaurant to upscale seafood with a few good Mexican offerings. We only missed the black bean soup with delicious condiments that they used to serve. Our server Ernesto was charming and helpful.

Las Brisas is situated just off The Pacific Coast Highway in Laguna Beach, Ca. It is high above the Pacific Ocean and there are excellent views from the outside patio as well as from windows inside the restaurant. They have lots of seafood dishes as well as steaks all with a Mexican flare. The champagne brunch on Sundays is very... More
