We came because we heard the view was the best in Laguna Beach (it was), but food was just as good if not better! Everyone loved their meals. This will definitely be one of our regular faves moving forward.

Had a nice meal. Located just above the surf - what a nice atmosphere. Food was very good, but quite expensive. Service was outstanding. Would definitely come back.

The view is amazing! Just stunning! The restaurant is right above the sand. When it gets dark, they even shine a spotlight on the ocean so that it's still visible. There is nothing more romantic than eating dinner and listening to the ocean.
The food is very salty, however. I have tried multiple things on the menu and haven't been overly impressed with the food. I still keep going back, however.

We went to Splashes and sat in the bar area at a table in the lower level, next to an open window. The view was of Catalina Islands and we saw the sunset and were literally atop the sand and could hear the waves and watch the people on the beach. It was invigorating. There were bar specials served only in the bar area, but we didn't indulge in the seafood specials. I ordered a starter for two, BBQ shrimp with macaroni and cheese. It was out of this world. I went home and tried to recreate it, it was that good. We ordered a bottle of cakebread wine and it was reasonably priced and perfect. I enjoyed a steak dinner and a few glasses of wine and the memory is of the excellent service with an affable waiter, the views, and the delicious food. Hot and tasty. Chef did an awesome job and we sent compliments to the chef. Very different selection on the menu besides standard fares, loved this place. It was about $100 a person with the drinks. Worth it!
