This place has an awesome view of the ocean. The food was good and I had the jalapeño margarita which was super tasty and not overly hot. It also has access to the beach. I will definitely go back

Each time we visit Orange County, we make our first stop at Las Brisas. Their food and drinks are consistently the freshest and delivered promptly. The servers and staff are very friendly and always make us feel welcome, despite this being a very popular and busy place most times. The margaritas are fantastic as is the Ahi Poke Tower which...

Loved, Loved, Loved this restaurant. The views are absolutely breathtaking! The food and drinks were great, it's a fun restaurant with outside dining. Don't miss if you go to Laguna Beach

Went here as a party of six. Valet parking at the side and then walk round to the side to go in. Would recommend getting there early as the walk and views are lovely as well as the sea air. Inside bar area ok, we had a table side on the bay so all could view it. Tables and chairs... More

This restaurant is right next to the laguna inn our hotel. The food and service was excellent and you can't beat the views of the pacific ocean and Heisler park

Went to Las Brisas for a birthday party for about 15 people. Very attentive wait staff, especially for such a large party. The food was A M A Z I N G! The view even better than the food! I had the huevos rancheros with steak....mmmmm....perfectly cooked and way too big a portion for lunch. The waiters kept the champagne... More

The view is incredible, the food is underwhelming - at best. The margarita was...alright. Not bad, not great. Go for the view, not the food.

My daughter and I had lunch on the terrace overlooking the Pacific Ocean--so gorgeous. I had a mixed green salad with chicken---food OK---but the view was the best! Recommend for a casual lunch to enjoy the view of Laguna Beach. Try to get a table with an umbrella because otherwise it can get hot---fast!

Looking for a nice place to have a good normal breakfast. We were unaware when we went here that it was a brunch type restaurant. You could only get that at $19.99 per person. They had nothing exciting on the brunch that wasn't available at a less expensive place. We don't mind paying for something if it is worth the... More
