I love to eat outside at Las Brisas!!! The views are amazing and I never want to leave. Be prepared to get there early or wait for a table. I love their Jalapenos Margritas!!!! Just fabulous. Snacks are very good and as well as dinners. I do not like to eat inside, but that is just because sitting... read more

Can't beat the view from the patio! Food was great too. Margaritas were outstanding. Perfect for a special occasion or even a nice treat.

Wonderful location with awesome views! The restaurant is very nice with an excellent service and delicious food. We had fish, ceviche, soup, and wines. As appetizer I enjoyed a fabulous mojito!

Again, a few steps away. We ended up having 3 meals there....drinks and appetizers the night we arrived...was great because it was a walk away....and then 2 mornings we had their fantastic breakfast buffet....and again..the views of the ocean were spectacular.

Las Brisas is a lovely place for an afternoon cocktail. One is probably all anyone can afford. I took an out-of-state friend for a Margarita that was good (but I had a horrible reaction to the tequila later, I am guessing it was the tequila). The guacamolé was very pretty, very expensive and tasty. Bottom line, a great place to... More

I haven't been to Las Brisas in years, and was wondering if it would be as good as I remembered... we were not disappointed! Of course, the view is amazing - seated on the patio. I was afraid the food would be average, but instead the Shrimp Dish I had was amazing. Wonderfully flavorful and beautifully prepared & presented. The... More

Stopped in here while we strolled along the oceanfront. Sat on the patio and enjoyed the view of the ocean. Service was friendly, efficient and fast. I had the namesake salad with chicken added. Greens were fresh and plentiful. Chicken breast was moist and tender. A very good salad.

Great service and food. Close to the Inn at Laguna Beach just off the cliff path. Great outdoor patio vibe with incredible Pacific views. Food was fresh and plentiful. Get the Tuna Tower for an appy, yum.

The food was good. The menue offered Mexican cusine with a twist, however not too many options to choose from for the lunch menu. Drinks were good as well. Staff were friendly. Food came out fast. You have an option to sit inside or outside and the view was great. Easy walk to the beach from the restaurants and close... More
