Very good casual Mexican food (though not particularly "Mexican")

Everything here is good, but the blackened salmon burrito is great. A really good beer tap selection, too. Just don't expect Oaxaca style mole here---definitely intended for the south OC crowd. That stated, it's my go-to Mexican food in Orange County. Gotta go to LA or SD for better.

Having lived in Laguna for more than 25 years, it gets old finding parking, and dealing with tourists. Laguna isn't known for it's fast food establishments so a quick lunch can be challenging. La Sirena is our place. There's outside dining with a bit of an ocean view. We can bring the dogs and eat healthy, delicious food. There's also... More

Great burritos with organic options. Chips and salsa also delicious! Kids options are large and include chips enough for the whole family.

This is one of several La Sirena restaurants in South Orange County. The original one in downtown Laguna (on Mermaid Street, hence the "La Sirena" name) is truly iconic. The food is more expensive than other Mexican fast food places (e.g., Wahoo's - which I also love, by the way, Baja Fresh, Rubio's), but the quality is exceptional. The food... More

Food was good for you, tasty, but not 100% standout. The fish (salmon) was delicious, but the condiments around it were a bit run of the mill. Be sure to take 20 minutes and walk across the street and down the stairs to the beach. Lovely.

Try the quesadillas - carne asada, pork or chicken - all are great and nicely prepared. The platter comes w sour cream, pico de Gallo and terrific guacamole. Large enough to split, but you'll want it all to yourself. Just $10. Always busy after 5pm - from families w little kids to seniors. Large bar w many choices of draft... More

There are many Mexican restaurants in all California, many much cheaper and a some more sophisticated. This one serves simple good quality food, with a wide choice of beers, friendly environment, well situated at the other side of South Laguna Beach, one of the most beautiful places on earth. The price is very adjusted, and the service kind and efficient.... More
