With views of the ocean and Laguna Beach, we enjoyed our Guacamole with Chips ($13) and our lunch entrees of Filet of Sole (a bit bland), Grilled Shrimp (tasty) and Tortilla Salad (huge) (all about $20) while soaking in the pristine environment. The food is delicious and displayed on our plates in Laguna Beach fashion--a piece of art. Pricey--yes. Worth... More

Business dinner at Las Brisas was outstanding. We had a party of 12, which they managed without any issues. The food was excellent, everyone enjoyed it and the service was great. Located on the cliff side overlooking Laguna Beach, it was beautiful! The main dining room faces the ocean with all glass, so every table has a great view. There's... More

Wonderful place to sit with friends and enjoy the ocean view. We stayed mostly with appetizers and small plates. The guacomole was fresh with just enough texture but still easy for dipping. The fruits and shrimp were wonderful. Great selection of specialty drinks. You have to know it is crowded and loud but just be sure and go to patio... More

This restaurant is probably the most famous one in Laguna Beach. It's situated at Heisler Park, perched on the hill next to the Laguna Art Museum. Parking is tight around there but there is valet parking, or you could park further away at a meter on the street along Heisler Park and have a pleasant walk back to the restaurant.... More

Great location, wonderful view. But $13 for guacamole? That's the kind of pricing you'll see. I would not go back, although the food was good. Way overpriced for a Mexican restaurant.

The food is wonderful and the views are stunning. We try to eat there every time we are in Laguna Beach because we always enjoy the food. Our favorites are their meals that have a Mexican flare. It's a memorable place with good food and good service so we are never disappointed!

Used to live in orange county and I frequent Lad Bridas often. Came back on the business trip with some of my colleagues and introduced them to this excellent restaurant. They did not disappoint. You have to be there when the sun is setting. Margaritas are excellent. Anything in their seafood or steak category is wonderful. Had the catch of... More

We have dined here on numerous occasion's, socially, with clients and business events. This establishment will NEVER disappoint. From the great food to the professional service it is one of our favorites. Not to mention the ocean views, Gorgeous! Inside or outside seating, there are no bad choices. They also have a daily breakfast buffet.
