Went to Splashes for breakfast while staying at the Surf & Sand Resort. The view is great with plenty of outdoor tables but the service was slow and absent-minded and the food was ok but not startling. was planning to go for dinner but we'll find someplace else instead.

The most beautiful view in Laguna accompanied by great food and awesome service. Ashley did an amazing job with our large party of guests. Everyone's needs and special requests were 'no problem' for Ashley and every time she delivered them with a smile. All this on top of an amazing and unimpeded view of the Pacific Ocean through glass you had to touch to make sure it was there. This place would be amazing for a romantic dinner.

To start with you can't dine any closer to the ocean without getting wet. The view is spectacular and seating outdoors works most of the year with their generous use of heaters and lap blankets if you like. Our server was professional and knowledgeable (thank you Pepe) and the food all around delicious. A must when in Laguna Beach.

We have been to Splashes 2 times in the last few months. We love the location! We enjoyed an overnight get away at the Surf and Sand Resort and had a wonderful dinner. We went back to Splashes a few weeks later for lunch. What a perfect view while we enjoyed our lunch! The Double Brie and Fig Burger is a must try! Thank you Marvin for the wonderful service!

Many restaurants with great views, this one on the beach at Laguna, glide by on the view and gave okay kitchens. Not this one. Here the kitchen comes first and the great Pacific is an extra. Impressive and delicious dishes in a very pleasant space. Look up their menu to see if is for you. Scallops, cod , kefte, marvelous salads, fresh and imaginatively prepared vegetables includin a favorie brussel sprouts dish...and on and on. Chapeau chef Reyes.
