The setting is beautiful and the service is great. Had to send my Scallops back - they were cold to the touch! The new Scallops did arrive after awhile and they were better. The servers were friendly and had a birthday Creme Brûlée for the birthday girl. The other guests all had good dinners and the evening was nice.

Splashes is inside a lovely, small boutique hotel right on Beach in Laguna. I'm talking right on the beach!! We were literally feet from the ocean. There were several levels of indoor and outdoor seating options and a neat "happening" bar. Great cocktails and a wine list with lots of choices. Now the good part: the food really shines- outstanding,... More

Open up the windows of the bar area and order a cold one. The sight of the waves and the paddle boarders are plenty, The few boogey boarders that come down are hilarious and we got a front row seat to watch them wipe out.

Splashes is a restaurant overlooking the breaking surf. I describe it as like being at dinner at home if you could afford a house on the beach with full staff and a gourmet cook. Great views of crashing waves,good food and excellent service A great place to eat if you are visiting Laguna or taking guests for a special dinner.

We had our penultimate meal here before we left for the UK. It was a meal to remember. We had cocktails in the bar, then we were seated on a table overlooking the ocean. Our lovely waitress looked after us all night, and helped with our choice off the menu. Husband had the duck, and loved it, and my short... More
