“Great for the views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2014

We went with a large crowd and sat inside. The views are perfect for sitting oceanside overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean. The food was very good. Enjoyed the deliciously fresh guacamole. Had a chicken dish that was good but not originally what I ordered. Since it was a large crowd the waiter got so flustered that he mixed my order, no big deal. I just didn't catch the name of the dish though. The desserts were heaven. I believe the best part of the experience is definitely the view.

“Great view and we loved the food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2014 via mobile

I'm sure you can find some dishes that aren't as good as others. But. We love the guacamole along with the Yucatan Chicken. Of course, you can't beat the view. Be patient and sit outside.

“Really lovely view; worst nachos ever”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2014

What else can you say? How can a Mexican restaurant screw up nachos? Didn't take the time to melt cheese, threw on bottled salsa, globbed on some overseasoned steak pieces. We were going to have something else after those, but just couldn't face the possibility. The good: fabulous, lovely view - and a chance to sit outside and enjoy the fresh air. Passion fruit margarita pretty tasty - actually tasted like passion fruit! Maybe we'll go back some time for drinks, but don't think we'll bother with food.

“mis-informed via internet”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2014

I have been coming to Las Brisas to Happy Hour for EVER, it seems. Certainly, it has been for at least 20 years. They have ALWAYS had a Happy Hour. On our most recent visit, last night, we went for both the beautiful view and also the Happy Hour that I read about before going, on line. When we come to Laguna, we like to check out the hours and offers of each restaurant before we go, as we have two hungry teen-age boys who require more food and more expensive food to fill their appetite than my husband and me. Reviews that I read about Las Brisas were wonderful, "great happy hour", "great happy hour prices" , also quotes of pricing like "$8.75 for chicken nachos"....which is why we went there and ordered chicken nachos. Our bill came and the nachos were $20!!! We asked the waitress about the price and she said that she hadnt known of a Happy Hour for "a long time".The manager would not do anything about our bill, but acknowledged that the website has not been updated in a long time. Really? In this day and age when we all look at web-sites for information?? Not a good business move. Not sure that we will go to Las Brisas again. The view is wonderful, the nachos were really good......but the nachos cost $20. I would never spend $20 on nachos......EVER!!

“Great View, Great Brunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

A perfect place to have brunch on Laguna Beach. We took all of kids and grandkids and everyone loved it. The food was delicious and bountiful; the atmosphere perfect overlooking the ocean; and the weight staff very attentive. We'll be back.
