Upscale fresh Mexican "fast" food

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... read more

Outstanding food. Superb service. Healthy organic ingredients. Sat outside on a lovely summer day with wild salmon burritos

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

I work nearby so I often eat here for lunch. Recently I brought a friend for dinner and we loved it. It's very casual - you order at the counter, take a number and they bring your food to your table. There's a great salsa bar that is stocked with delicious choices. I had a grilled salmon taco and a... More

Went here will on business in the area, was so good, went back. Seems to be where locals go. A little on the no frills side - self order and self seating. But the food is excellent with a good spirited staff. If you like beer, they pay special attention to selection. Great place - wish there was one close... More

Love La Sirena, the quick casual environment, the salsa bar, the margaritas, the specials, but the food is always on point. We love to eat here when we are in the area. Please please bring La Sirena a bit north for us! The restaurant is always a bit hard to find seating because it it popular and tasty!

Right across the street from Montage - grab a table, order at the counter and get your number, they bring your food over. Well-priced, high-quality food and drinks. Seemed like a "locals" kind of place. Excellent atmosphere. Great for a quick, low cost, but high quality dinner or lunch.
