We did a day trip to Laguna. Spent the day on the beach, and found this restaurant on our hunt for lunch. They have an amazing view! Which is what sold me. Depending on where you sit,you could have one heck of a view of Laguna Beach and the horizon. The food was good as well, the guacamole I would... More

The restaurant's outdoor terrace is a popular, lively and fun place for a sundowner cocktail and some appetizers. The wait staff was very professional, friendly and attentive. The cocktails and guacamole, salsa & chips were top notch, some of the best in recent memory. The restaurant sits on a bluff overlooking the Pacific just north of Main Beach in Laguna... More

Three of us made a reservation on a Sunday night for 7pm. Seems reasonable. We arrived and were greeted by a very friendly hostess and were informed our table would be ready in a couple of minutes. We told her we would wait in the bar. Now at this point at a nice restaurant that the hostess would find us... More

A place to people watch! Food is good, BUT expensive! We love the morning brunch, except not on Sunday....much fancier and higher priced! Has a great outdoor patio.

We stopped here for lunch on our way down south along the coast on the advice of a friend who used to live here. We are very glad we did! The restaurant is perched on a bluff above the beach. You can eat outside with a good view of the coastline (probably don't need reservations at least for lunch) or... More

The guacamole was addictive! Fresh corn chips and salsa (too mild). Waitstaff served the cheese separately for our lactose challenged dinner mate. Challenging restaurant for vegans. Gluten free had options. We ordered the playa del mar, daily halibut, las brisas salad, gazpacho. Every item was fresh, beautifully presented. Passed on dessert, as the food was oversized. I've dined here for... More

The restaurant is located on the cliff above the beach. You have an amazing view of the cove and park. It's great to relax while enjoying a beautiful scenery.

Had the pleasure of dining and brunching at this magnificent place. The Ocean Views are magnificent! The sunsets are to die for, and the service is very good. I used valet parking ($7.00), which I found extremely affordable. I sat at the outdoor cafe where I ordered a wine glass and the ceviche. I don't know which was better, the... More

Love this restaurant! Dined there twice during a recent stay in Laguna Beach. First time I ordered the Seafood Grande Salad. It was frisée lettuce with shrimp, crab claws, ahi tuna, yellow beats, chopped mango and more served with a homemade dressing. It was fabulous! Second visit I ordered cheese enchiladas with s shrimp chili relleno. I got a big... More

We were smart to make reservations because there were people there who didn't, were told the wait was 25 min, had been there over an hour, and were yet to be seated. We were seated by two large very noisy parties that made it hard for us to hear each other even though we were seated next to each other.... More
