This is not typical lard laden Mexican fare. It seems to be all about lively flavors & high quality fresh ingredients. No heavy, greasy sauces. No canned, mushy, greasy refried style of beans.The organic beans are slow cooked & seasoned with no added lard or oils. They have a little salsa bar where you dish out your favorite salsas for...

As a big mexican food fan, I tried many different places during my stay in California and I this has to be one of my favorite ones! I got some fish and chicken tacos with a margarita and everything tasted fresh and delicious! Good location too with lots of parking spaces, for a quick stop before enjoying an afternoon on... More

The most boring mexican food I've ever tasted. I ordered the tacquito platter and although the guac and queso fresco was fresh, the beans were right out of the can and the rice was blah. The tacquito's were bland and lacked filling. For mexican food in california, it had no flavor and no spice. Disappointing.

We recently vacationed in Laguna Beach and stayed at the Montage Resort. One evening we were looking for a place to have dinner and did not want to go far or spend a lot of money. We found this restaurant across the street. What a treat! It is real simple where it seems the locals hang out. We ordered our... More

Enjoyed lunch at the So. Laguna location. Had carne Assad nachos, vegetarian and chicken tacos. Well prepared, fresh not heavy.

Have been there about 7 or 8 times. The food is good and the people are helpful. Sit in or out it is all good.

Lousy location with outdoor seating overlooking a shopping center parking lot...but great Mexican food featuring local organic ingredients. With their recent expansion, La Sirena added a great selection of craft beers but didn't give much thought to decor... So come for the food and beer. Our experience with service has been great, so I'm not sure what the complaints are... More

We've frequented La Sirena for the great calamari tacos and other seafood but always lamented the limited seating. When we realized that there was another nearby location with ample seating we were keen to check it out. It did have an impressive amount of indoor and outdoor space plus a bar. The only downside was that it was in a... More

We frequent this restaurant all the time -- my favorite is the lime avocado salad with blackened shrimp. Delicious! The portions are big and the prices are good. Relaxed atmosphere which offers outdoor seating.

This place seems packed always. Probably since they have a great selection of local beers. The ambiance is of a bar snd service is cafeteria style of self service. People don't smile while working, probably too busy and burned out. It's recommended if you want a burrito and a beer.
