Went there with my wife, daughter and boyfriend. Hostess was very good and accommodated us to a window seat. I recommend requesting that in advance however it is first come first serve. Waiter was great. I had the scallops and they were fantastic. Portions are not huge but just right. I also recommend the brussel sprouts for an appetizer. The... More

We LOVED this restaurant. Great food- charred octopus; spicy shrimp flatbread, yummy! Pedro did a great job! He was charming and told us all about Laguna Beach since it was our first visit. We will be back!

We enjoyed brunch on a sunshine-filled Saturday & seated at the outside patio with unobstructed views of the ocean. We were recommended the crisp octopus & truffle frites which were both delicious. I had to try the red velvet pancakes (it was highly recommended by a colleague) and it did not disappoint! extra yummy with the accompaniment of mascarpone. The... More

Food is exquisitely wonderful, unique and cooked to perfection! They have a corking fee of $25 if you wish to bring your own favorite wine!

I really love this restaurant. Probably my favourite restaurant on the planet. Food, service and ambiance are exceptional. A little pricey but worth every penny. Dining alone can sometimes be an issue but not here. Everyone kept checking on me to make sure I was happy. I will definitely be returning soon!!

I've been to Splashes many times, primarily for brunch and dinner. Bar area has its own menu, is casual and has phenomenal views. Great vibe from locals and visitors alike. Dinners are typically very good, not great. Great place to take visitors. Service is usually excellent.

We were meeting friends from England and we were looking for a restaurant in a nice setting. A friend suggested Splashes because it is right on the beach. They have villa parking which cost $8.00 with you ticket getting stamped at the front desk. We had a friendly greeting at the door and we got a nice table by the... More

At the Surf an Sand hotel - but you don't feel like you are in a hotel when you get to the restaurant - indoor outdoor setting on the ocean. Can even take a stroll on the beach. Unique food all good.

After reading the other reviews on this website, we were pumped up and excited to have the 4 and a half star experience. Unfortunately, we were let down right from the beginning. We sat in the bar, first mistake, although the view of the beach was awesome. We ordered off of both the dinner menu and the bar menu. The... More

Restaurant is located practically on the beach therefore the view is great. All personal is super friendly. Make you feel really welcomed. This is primarily seafood restaurant so don't expect much more. They have pork chop and beef but that about it. However seafood choices are really great. We had a great time, food was excellent. The only downside is... More
