Meet an out of town client there for sinner. Great views with amazing sunset and perfect laguna beach environment. Food is great, but priced for views. Great place to show off Laguna Beach for visitors to So. Cal.

Do not forget to stop by splashes if you are staying at the surf and sand or visiting laguna! Just a lovely place for a meal - great service and staff. Nicely prepared meals - a little expensive but worth it! Enjoy!!!!

We've eaten at Splashes many times over the years but the dining this year has been above and beyond expectations. The menu has changed slightly to more parallel current dining tastes. The food is superb as is the presentation of each plate. The wait and bus staff are friendly and knowledgeable of both food preparation and local sites. Prices are... More

I am a local and used to come regularly. Last several experiences at the bar where you can eat and in the restaurant have been horrible. The food was either delayed to some, poorly prepared or just forgotten. Very expensive due to the great location. But service is poor with an attitude. And the manager is of no help. If... More

Such a great way to start our trip in Laguna! I ordered a chicken caesar salad & my husband ordered the special lobster grilled cheese sandwich. Both were fantastic, and the view + tasty margarita were the icing on the cake! A must visit if you are in Laguna. We will be back!

Had dinner here with my son last night. Food, service and ambience were good. Staff was very polite. My son had the lobster which he said was really good. He wouldn't let me try so I can't comment. For my appetizer I choose the Brussel sprout salad which was ok. Couldn't tell if it was lightly fried or roasted with... More

The reason to go to Splashes is the view. There are multiple levels, but the lowest is just above the sand in Laguna Beach with, if you sit right, infinity views of the ocean. We had a view of Catalina the night we were there. That's hard to beat and otherwise not available in Laguna. Time your visit to sunset.... More

Short of sitting on the sand, you are on the beach - but you must go to the Bar part. Bar serves food too, and it's a little cheaper. Big windows swing wide to watch the sunset on the beach, and there is an exit directly to the sand and water. Beautiful feel and light winds. Food light and excellent,... More
