The service was good, the food was good, especially the salad with fruit and walnuts, but you have to come here for the view. We saw a beautiful sunset and followed up dinner with a nice walk in beautiful Heisler Park. We loved our evening in Laguna Beach.

Yes great view, and the food was good. But, it's not "all" about the view. We usually have appetizers and a drink at Las Brisas.This time We decided to go for dinner. Atmosphere in the restaurant where we were sitting, was really loud kind of bright and the table was small.Carpet pretty shabby for the prices on the menu. We... More

If you like a seat with a view, Las Brisas is the place for you! They don't have a Happy Hour because the view is your deal! What a great way to start the weekend. We always start our Laguna Beach walk at Las Brisas. The Jalapeno Relleno was wonderful, make sure you order bread with it incase there is... More

Best brunch around for the price. I've been there for dinner but you can't beat the brunch for the price and atmosphere.

If you are looking for a casual, family atmosphere with terrific views and food...go no further. Las Brisas, while related to El Torito, is worth it. I'm not a fan of El Torito, but this historic version under the El Torito umbrella is well worth it. The chips, salsa and guacamole are the best I've had in a really long... More

My wife has fond memories of eating here regularly one summer 15 years ago. The restaurant is on the cliff next to the excellent Inn at Laguna Beach. There were four excellent things about our meal, the amazing Pacific sunset view, Taylor, the brilliant waitress, the upgraded tequila margaritas and the short walk home. The food was dreadful. The daily... More

He suggested Las Brisas for lunch and we we able to sit out on their patio overlooking the ocean. Their margaritas were excellent as was their very generous portion of guacamole. I has an exceptional crab, ahi... More

Sit outside on the patio and take in the beach view!! The shrimp was very good and menu was refreshing with its choices of seafood. Service was friendly and fast. This is a tourist destination..but it was worth going for a nice lunch. Afterward..take the path down to the beach for a walk.

We went with a large crowd and sat inside. The views are perfect for sitting oceanside overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean. The food was very good. Enjoyed the deliciously fresh guacamole. Had a chicken dish that was good but not originally what I ordered. Since it was a large crowd the waiter got so flustered that he mixed my order,... More

I'm sure you can find some dishes that aren't as good as others. But. We love the guacamole along with the Yucatan Chicken. Of course, you can't beat the view. Be patient and sit outside.
