What a beautiful place to have such a lovely, delicious dining experience. We started our evening with drinks to order in the bar - an elegant room with wide open windows to the surf crashing only steps below us - so delightful. Our dining table must have been the best in the house, although any table in the place has... More

We had the best anniversary dinner at Splashes this past October. The staff went above and beyond to make this a very special dinner. We got married in Laguna Beach last year and as soon as they heard the staff went into all romance mode. I would highly recommend Splashes, the food was great and the atmosphere is unbeatable.

The Surf and Sand hotel and Splashes Restaurant has everything you need for a great visit/meal. When you dine at Splashes, you are right on the beach with a great view of the Pacific Ocean. You can't get any closer. Not a bad seat in the house. Order the Brussels sprouts and Lobster Bisque, you won't be disappointed.

When you want to eat by the beach, this is the place. Sitting outside is fine even if cool and foggy as long as you are by a heater. The brunch selection is very good. Food is delicious but expensive.

Took too long to bring the food. The waiters seemed to be all over the place and when you are hungry, every second delay adds to the pain in the belly! Food was nice enough but the view was the best thing as it overlooks the beach and the sea. Be a little cheeky like me and grab a quick... More

I'm not crazy about the food, but the ocean view is incredible. 3 for food, 4 for the location. The restaurant is practically on the beach. We usually take our business partners from out of town here and they love it.

We sat at the bar, and had a fabulous dinner while listening to the pounding waves. Bartenders were especially friendly and made the evening very special.

We usually come here during happy hour times, however we have been here for dinner before. There is valet parking which makes parking a breeze. Food isn't spectacular, however it is good and priced fair for Laguna Beach, CA. What makes this places cool is that there aren't too many other restaurants in Laguna Beach where you are closer to...

The Host Michael, advised we had two choices of tables, (we made are reservation 2 months in advance) ended up in the walkway, in front of the fireplace, while other guests where asked which table they perferred, Michael never smiled once durning our visit to a single guest. Food was over priced, Pepe our waiter could not be understood, so... More

ate here last night for a business meeting and to say the least this place s a "wow" in every respect. Literally right on the ocean in trendy Laguna Beach. Can't beat that. The sounds of the surf throughout dinner simply cannot be surpassed. OK enough about the atmosphere. The food is very well done and as you would expect... More
