There are many restaurants in Laguna Beach with a view of the Ocean, but none like Las Brisas! It is an Icon! The outdoor patio is right next to the cliff side walkway over looking the historic Gazebo and all along the Laguna coast line!...More

Excellent seafood served with an outstanding view of the Pacific. A bit pricey but worth it for the location, location, location.

The restaurant is large with an unbelievable view of the ocean. We ordered guacamole dip and calamari appetizers. I had the Branzino sea bass fish in a beurre Blanca sauce with fingerling potatoes, carrots and asparagus. Very light and tasty lunch. The menu is pricey...More

Legendary Las Brisas has been southern California's definitive place to enjoy fantastic and resplendent coastal views. The menu at Las Brisas brims with the authentic cuisine of the Mexican Riviera and is filled with recipes discovered along the 3000 miles of Mexico's coast. The stunning setting makes Las Brisas the perfect venue for a host of events and their renowned Sunday Brunch is the premier way to unwind and take in a gorgeous day. Come and enjoy our newly renovated Seaside Cantina. It features a refrigerated wine room, tequila wall, 65-foot Koa wood bar and a completely re-imagined cocktail menu. Join us for live music every Wednesday - Saturday from 6:30 PM-10:00 PM.
