We stayed at the Travelodge for a couple of weeks. This Mexican Eatery (3 minutes walk from the hotel) offers good food for lunch. I was specially fond of the Quesadillas Carne Asada. The logistics work well. Take a menu and a seat (inside or outside). Order inside at the bar and bring your label and beverage to your table.... More

We were directed to La Sirena on Mermaid St by our hotel but were wanting to sit (inside) as was cold and had children with us. Luckily a very friendly local was collecting 'take out' and drove us to the Sth Laguna restaurant. I'd read trip advisor review and was keen to try it out. Food was delicious although kids... More

They always have a wonderful selection of craft beers that rotate constantly. Their food ingredients are generally sourced from either organic or sustainable sources. They have excellent quality food at very moderate prices. I highly recommend their calamari taco.

Great margaritas, guacamole & Mahi. Kid-friendly. Relaxed, fresh. Good beer selection. Counter service or takeout.

Our last day in California and we went to La Sirena for a burrito dinner. Group of 6 and the service was fast. Food was really good. If I had to complain I'd say the hottest salsa wasn't exactly hot (I don't need flames but a tad more heat wouldn't hurt).

We are locals who are very picky about good Mexican food and we go to this location about once a week. Everything we've tried here is fresh and good, although the salads are particularly outstanding. It is casual and family friendly while attracting a broad demographic. It has a good salsa bar, beer selection, and has plenty of parking. Highly... More

I only live about 4 miles south of the restaurant. A business colleague suggested that we go there for lunch. It is a casual Mexican restaurant, but with very good food. It is more Mexican-style then Mexican. I had the carne asada avocado salad and it was outstanding. The best salad I've had this year. The restaurant is right across... More

Consistently excellent based on quality, preparation and variety of options. Great food, great wine and beer selections. Family friendly but still fun for adults. And they have plenty of parking! Is this really in Laguna Beach? Yes!

I passed on the typical Mahi Mahi fish taco and instead went for one tilapea and one calamari taco. Both were very good. The fish tasted fresh and was not overcooked. The cabbage, chopped red and yellow bell peppers and seasoning was a nice touch. The salsa felt original and had decent heat. The tortilla was overwhelmed by the taco... More
