“Killer calamari burrito”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

Smaller, out-of-the-way place in Laguna with faaantastic food! Tried the calamari burrito based on a friend's recommendation, and it was superb! Two days later and I am still craving it. It came with a small side of chips, and they have a little self-serve salsa bar inside... tried the mild & medium, loved them both. I thought the price was great too - all 3 of us got the same burrito, and all 3 of them had big, thick pieces of calamari throughout, so they definitely don't skimp on the best part.

“Incredible!”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

This is by far the BEST mexican food we had on our entire trip! The calamari (grilled not fried) burrito is AMAZING! Dinner for a four under $50!

“This Grill was part of a Restaurant Tour; everything was good!”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

The Guacamole was delicious, as was the salsa and chips. They also served us taquitos that were delicious. I wish we had more time in Laguna in order to visit this establishment for more good food.

“Wish the quality was more consistent”
Reviewed 25 March 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

We've had both excellent and mediocre meals at La Sirena. What you get seems to depend on the mood of the cooks. I usually order the Tilapia burrito, and have had it perfectly cooked, and inedibly overcooked. Sometimes the burritos are nicely assembled, sometimes the ingredients are thrown together and the whole thing is a mess to eat. It's difficult to recommend this restaurant because it's so inconsistent.

“Basic but great. ”
Reviewed 27 January 2014 via mobile

In the middle of Laguna this tiny place serves perfect Mexican fare. Fresh ingredients, smooth service, and simple, but, flavorful food, make this experience better than Red O, or, Javier's. Try tacos el pastor or the fish tacos. They throw in the chips and you load up on the sauces. The place is clean, and you don't leave feeling greasy. Seating is outdoors.
