This place though older (they are renovating soon) sits on the hill steps from the beach with a breathtaking view of the ocean. That combined with the unique "Mexican Food" think Mexican/Seafood Fusion and probably the best "Skinny Margarita" I've ever tasted....attentive Service, truly recommend for that special dining experience. We sat indoors but there is a lovely patio for... More

This restaurant is best visited for its location against the beautiful pacific ocean along the california coast in laguna beach, CA. My wife and I have been here several times for breakfast and have never been disappointed. They have valet parking and if you get there early you get a seat by the window and you can stare our aimlessly... More

The staff was very accommodating, the venue beautiful & the food beyond delicious- as always. Las Brisas is one of our favorite restaurants to go to with friends. And, with family when they are in town. You never disappoint & the champagne Sunday brunch for the guests the day after my son's wedding was no exception. We loved the personalized... More

Enjoy a great view of the Pacific Ocean from the cliffs in Laguna Beach with a larger outdoor patio with heaters. It offers Mexican fare and is probably not a place to visit if you do not enjoy Mexican food in that there are not any other options. Would still be worthwhile just to enjoy drinks and the view

A great location in Laguna Beach with amazing views - food is go but not great - we like the outdoor bar and just found out that while they are not on the menu they still have fish and chips - some of the best in the area (expensive at $20.00 but great)

Located on the bluff above Main Beach. Wonderful ocean views inside or out on patio. Food is outstanding ! I am very picky about eating shellfish, here I have never had a bad meal in 35 years. Everything on the menu is exceptional and fresh. It was originally the historical Victor Hugo's in the 30's and is still the best... More

Had the breakfast buffet which had some Mexican items and American items. The fox was very good. The view was outstanding! After eating we strolled the beach walkway with Heisler Park.

I been dining here for years, and I have got to say, the food has been a lot better. I got the surf and turf which had two piles of mashed potatoes, with a small piece of steak on each, some garnish and a shrimp. For dessert I got the chocolate mousse in the almond Florentine shell with coffee liqueur... More

This past Sunday after checking out of the Surf and Sand Resort, we stopped by here for appetizers. The patio is first come first serve so we didn't need a reservation. The weather was beautiful and we had a table with an oceanview. Appetizers were the chips and guacamole, fresh mango salad and bacon wrapped shrimp and scallops. Everything was... More
