Laguna Beach

I hear there are many good spots in Laguna Beach with a good ocean view. Anyone have suggestions on restaurants which have a good ocean view for lunch? I was planning to take my gf there on a saturday afternoon for lunch for our anniversary.

  1. A popular spot is Las Brisas. I went there a few years ago and didn't have the best experience with their food. But from what I've heard and read, hanging outside on the patio is where it's at.

    1. Expect plenty of company if the weather is nice -- so make rezzies if at all possible.

      If I were being treated, I'd like to go to:
      Sapphire Laguna's patio with a view (on PCH, not 'on' the beach)
      Motif at the St. Regis
      Mosaic at The Montage resort
      Splashes at the Surf and Sand Hotel, the not-amazing fare is out-wowed by the jaw-dropping beach setting.

        Forgot to add:

        Avoid anything other than drinks at Las Brisas and prepare to share your visit with tons o' tourists. I might cry with despair (on the inside, of course) if my BF took me there.
