This place has been around for decades. Setting and food - spectacular, along with fine service. The shrimp cocktail and Ahi tower are excellent.

This is a traditional Mexican fare - as opposed to Mexican chain food that I call Mexican street food. They don't serve salsa and chips standard but their offerings are impressive . The asada was superb. The steak was thick and tasty. They offer one bean choice that was good enough to make an entire meal of. The outside is... More

We dined here before going to the Pageant of the Masters. Had we realized that the Pageant buses stop here, we could have kept our car parked here rather than moving closer to the venue where we had to take the bus anyway. We wanted to sit outside overlooking the ocean but in order to do that you basically have... More

Las Brisis is the go-to place on Ciiff in North Laguna by tourists and locals alike and there's a good reason why. The place is always packed, yet there is somehow, always a seat to be had.

We got married in Heisler Park over 25 years ago, and had our wedding dinner at Las Brisas. This was the first time we went back -- and it looked just the same! The location is just beautiful. In spite of time passing, the restaurant looked great. Our meal was good, the restaurant was very busy, so service was a... More

My husband and I were lucky enough to find metered parking in front but I believe there is valet parking offered at the hotel nearby if you can't find parking. The location can't be beat. The food is on the pricey - we paid 65 for 2 sodas, a ceviche appetizer and burger that we split. The burger was good,... More

Excellent lunch spot overlooking the beach. Guacamole, Ahi tacos, and the burger and homemade chips were all delicious.

Great place to relax with a cocktail. Had margaritas and guacamole with the kids. Beautiful view. Pricey but you can't beat the view

The whole reason to go to this restaurant is for the view, not the food. The food is average and overpriced, but the ocean view is stunning.
