    We were early and they were able to seat us 15 minutes early. Service was exceptional. The food was amazing and exquisite. Flavors were so unique and they worked. Dessert was chocolate cake, small and perfect size with a very tasty apple sauce and a few pomegranates, so unique! And a scrumptious cream. Crazy flavors to put together but they all came together beautifully. I’d go back tomorrow.

    Las Brisas has an unbeatable view of the Laguna Beach coastline. It does a roaring business during the summer, but it is quieter in winter, and especially on New Year’s Day when we were last there. The food is very good, but not too adventurous Mexican. The service is excellent during the quiet winter months, and is still good during the summer. Our favorite dish is the whole grilled rock fish for two, from which you make your own tacos. But they usually run out of whole fish at some point during the dinner service, so be sure to order early if you want it. The only significant drawback is parking. Due to COVID they have converted their parking lot to outdoor seating, so you have to find parking on one of the nearby streets. You can’t visit Orange County beaches without having a drink and some guacamole at Las Brisas. Try it, you might stay for dinner.
