Sunday breakfast, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The menu had a wide variety of selections for even the most restrictive diets. I enjoyed the "Breadless Benedict", an innovative gluten free choice. It was very good, though a bit salty for my taste. My sister had the salmon and bagel plate...it look wonderful and she liked it. Staff is very attentive! I... More

Splashes is located in the Surf and Sand Resort in Laguna Beach. We had a great time there. Made a late reservation so went at 8;30 and had a great table by a window just yards from the sand and waves. Service and food were terrific. Only one minor criticism, it is so dark, one really needs a flashlight to... More

Both the view and the food are outstanding. over my stay, I tried the salmon, the halibut, the chicken and all were very good. They have great tables both indoors and outdoors and overall is a great place. It's not cheap but food and service make it worth the money.

The location is great since it's literally in the sand on the beach and our table was great. Our server started out strong and we had a large party but as the night moves on the service got worse and worse. Eventually our server was barely around so we tipped him accordingly and then he came back and scolded us... More

A great place for a romantic night out! The bar below is wonderful but the dinner menu is really where it's at. Food is great, wine list long, and great staff. The view is really where it's at though. Right on the water!

We tried Splashes looking for a nice place in Laguna Beach that allows you to forget the beachy tourist part. This was a great choice. The location is very nice, the Hotel (Surf and Sand) is nice. You can eat 25 feet above the surf and with the windows open feel like you are right there. The food is very... More

What a place to bring family, or a friend while your almost in the ocean. With high tide about 50' from your feet. Go enjoy your family watch dolphins & maybe see a gray whale going to have their babys I. The warm waters of Mexico.
