“Enjoyable with a view to die for!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012 via mobile

This is a beautiful setting on top of the cliff overlooking Laguna Beach. We had a great waiter Justin, and we both started of with a margarita (plenty to choose from). We had a delicious dinner and guacamole was super fresh and tasty, and all seafood was freshly caught and yummy. After dinner we then witnessed a beautiful sunset and walk along the beach. If you can request a table close to the window, it would be well worth it.

“Great view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

The view here is fabulous but the rest is so-so. Food and wine are pricey and only average so not a great value. Seems like they focus more on presentation than flavor. Street parking is limited with meters. Valet parking is pricey too. No real motivation to go back again.

“Wonderful views, service and margaritas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Las Brisas has wonderful views over the ocean and a great view of the sunset when the weather is clear. The margaritas are fantastic and go down very quickly. We debated whether to eat outside or in but chose outside and are glad we did. They have a circular open table with a fire pit that they light at dark with other torches and heaters across the patio to keep the perfect temperature. The menu is a small menu on the patio but I think the unique atmosphere made it well worth the scaled back menu.

“View can't be beat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Ok, it is trendy and it is a tourist destination; BUT, it is worth it! Located at Heisler Park in the midst of Laguna Beach, this is a great place to watch the sun set with a drink and some of their wonderful food served by gracious staff. You will not be disappointed.
