The atmosphere is lovely, overlooks the sea and the staff is very friendly. The food was average, you are paying for the view, but after tax and tip my salad with 3 prawns was $25 and overcooked. Still, I would try it again because it was such a nice place for lunch. The drink list was quite exotic but we... More

Living in Texas and loving Mexican food, I was disspointed. I 'was' made aware that California has a different type of Mexican food and therefore had to endure fruit as part of the dish. At least this time we didn't see rats running around so that's nice. You are paying for the gorgeous view especially at sunset. The service could... More

The view makes this worth the stop. The restaurant interior seems old and tired and the aquarium needs to be cleaned. We ate outside just for the view. The food is good but not the best Mexican I have ever had. Wait staff very nice.

We celebrated my wife’s birthday last week while on vacation in Laguna Beach, California, and we ate dinner at Las Brisas Restaurant. The restaurant is perched on a cliff overlooking Laguna Beach and the view is spectacular. The restaurant offers both formal inside dining and casual patio dining… we opted for the formal inside dining and we were given a... More

This upscale Mexican restaurant has beautiful views of Laguna Beach from the cliff. It is very crowded and you need reservations for dinner. Outdoor seating is difficult to obtain, but you can get great views from inside. Our server was very attentive to us, bringing us our bread and wine quickly. The appetizer, simply guacamole, took a while longer than... More

It is a fabulous Mexican seafood restaurant with an ocean view from some of the tables, not all. The service and food were excellent. The guacamole and seafood enchiladas were delicious. It's not inexpensive, but you get what you pay for.

Las Brisas is next to Heisler Park, so it has a fantastic view. The patio seats are first come. We sat at a little counter and had a drink and a shrimp cocktail. The mojito was tasty and the prawns were huge and perfect. We will return.

I've only been here for brunch. Food is quite good but somewhat lacking in variety. Brunch is buffet style so service is limited to beverages and buying but was very adequate. But Las Brisas is much more than just food. The restaurant sits high above Laguna Beach affording a breathtaking view of the beach area and the Pacific. It's definitely... More

On the cliff over the beach, providing great California sunsets, overlooking 'white spotted' rocks. Had ample privacy and time to get acquainted, while guest service was as just as expected. We keep this resort and restaurant close to our hearts♡

The views are great, but I think the food is expensive and over rated. There are a lot of restaraunts in Laguna Beach that have great views, good food with fair pricing
