    The food is extremely good. The dining room and patios need to be refreshed they are getting weathered. For this type of dining it should be maintained to a very high standard. The bar with reservations on the beach level has large windows over looking the ocean pretty perfect for views, except the windows need to be replaced (either gas damage from multi planned glass or just weathered. Regardless they should be pristine, you can barely see through them. What’s nice is the windows open, except the hinges haven’t been maintained and oiled. Maintenance is not to the levels one would expect impacting the overall quality of the experience. Again though, the quality of the food is quite good and the service id commensurate.

    Restaurants with such spectacular oceanside settings often don’t have the food and service to match. Along with a glorious open-air ocean view, we enjoyed an excellent meal to the sound of waves crashing (thus, Splashes). The service was impeccable from the get-go, with a very friendly, knowledgeable waiter and lickety-split food and drink service, only to be matched by continuous table bussing. Creative dishes with amazing flavor combinations such as the tangy Crisp Octopus, mouth-melting Whole Mediterranean Branzino, and smoky Crisp Brussels Sprouts are not to be missed. The cherry on top was the surprise Chocolate Creme Brûlée dessert (scrumptious!) for our birthday girl, making it all the more special. It was a wonderful dining experience. And, if you can hit the sunset hour, all the better!

    Celebrated our wedding anniversary at Surf & Sand; dinner at Splashes. George was very sweet and attentive to our table- the room seemed split between two servers. He sold me on the special- Prosciutto wrapped halibut with polenta and a Sicilian pesto and my partner had the Duck Breast. Both tasted amazing!

    We had a delightful dinner at Splashes. We were seated at a perfect table with the surf right in front of us. Our waiter, Patrick, was friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful. I had scallops and my husband had the halibut. Both dishes prepared to perfection and presented in an incredibly beautiful way. I especially loved the glass beets—oh my! The manager even stopped by to check on our meals and to wish me a happy birthday. So happy we tried this restaurant—a perfect way to celebrate my birthday.

    Terrible! The food was awful! We will never go back there! The Ceviche was very tough and chewy and tasteless. The Branzino was also tasteless and the presentation of a fish on a plate was awful. It wasn’t on a bed of spinach with lemon and capers with veggies or anything, it was just a dead fish on a plate. Really really really bad! I couldn’t believe how bad! It’s just about the location, but you have to walk through this old, tired, not nice motel looking hotel to get to the restaurant. Not good! Very disappointing. Was checking it out before taking guests. Glad we did! We will definitely not be taking anyone there! Terrible!

    The venue’s location and views are spectacular. The food was very good. We had lobster bisque and salads for a light lunch and it was delicious and beautifully presented. The restaurant is getting a bit dated but the view is making up for it. What was very disappointing, unfortunately, is the level of service. We felt very neglected and our server was not attentive. We had to look for him all the time as he disappeared after taking our order. Never checked back on us.

    Private Party going on at the pool with music made it difficult to have a conversation at an outside table. Food was average: octopus over cooked, wedge salad overdressed to almost being soggy, and pineapple cake dessert definitely in the dry side. My husbands halibut was very good as well as our lobster bisque. Server overcharged us two desserts from someone else’s table. Had to bring it to her attention when she brought the final bill. Hope things improve as this has been a favorite spot when visiting the area.

    The views are amazing....you are right on the beach. Service has been very good both times we have been there. Food is very good as well. Our only complaint is with the menu. We were celebrating my sisters recovery from cancer so we were all very excited to get together. Everyone reviewed the menu online and read the reviews. The lobster bisque is a favorite and we were looking forward to it. My husband had picked out a specialty sandwich and had his heart set on it. We sat down very excited to be together, enjoying the amazing view and hungry! Everyone was very disappointed to find out all of the things we were looking forward to having were not being offered that day. Lobster bisque is not offered on the weekends!! How crazy is that. The sandwich my husband was looking forward to was also not being offered . It was sad that the experience started off that way. It really put a damper on what should have been a much better experience.

    I’ve always wanted to try this restaurant as I’ve heard the views are amazing, which they are, however I didn’t expect the food to be so amazing! I had the lamp chops and my girlfriend had the scallops, both were incredible. The service was top notch, our waiter was very hospitable and attentive. This restaurant is probably amazing on a nice day, however it was a bit overcast and cold so a little uncomfortable with sea spray showering us and it was chilly. The restaurant itself is nice not Raya nice though.

    One of Laguna's treasures! Spectacular view with service and food to match. It was worth the short wait to get a table by the window overlooking the ocean and our waitress Kim and her assistant Jorge both took great care of us. They were exceptionally friendly and helpful. My burrata salad with grilled peaches and shrimp was excellent and others loved their mahi mahi tacos. The complimentary birthday dessert was a generously-sized and delicious chocolate creme brulee. Had such a good time that we made reservations for a future night as we left.

    The ocean view is truly amazing! The food is delicious although they did slightly over baked the mushroom flatbread (gave 4 stars for food) with added prawns. Service was very slow but friendly staff, which is a major plus. I do recommend this place!
