"best" is all opinion. Traveller's suggestions are all great ones. I'll add 230 Forest Avenue and Tortilla Republic.

I'll add Sapphire to the list. I do NOT consider Alessa to be "great."

I think Alessa is one of the better Italian choices in LB, which makes it a great suggestion, but that isn't necessarily the same thing as a great restaurant.

You should try Pirozzi in CdM if you have not already.

I was limiting my recommendations to Laguna Beach itself. There is better Italian outside the borders of that town.

We love Las Brisas for Mexican food and the pretty views. 230 Forest is very good for American food and The Cliff for seafood with views. For a formal meal, Studio @ The Montage is excellent with pretty oceanviews. 🏖
