We were seated at a window with beautiful beach views beyond well kept vegetation. The bread basket had both bread and cornbread. We enjoyed the fried calamari appetizer and seafood enchaladas.

You just can't beat the food or the view here at Las Brisas. It's a great place for a large family group or friends to get together and linger over the buffet, great service and just about the best ocean view in Laguna Beach.

We ate on the outside patio and really enjoyed the weather and the great views. There is a nice walk that takes you to the beach behind the restaurant. The food was very good as was the service.
