Las Brisas at the Victor Hugo Inn

A significant Southern California landmark perched above the scenic Laguna Beach coastline, Las Brisas is a premier dining destination. A strong sense of history stretches back to the Victor Hugo Inn, a world-class eatery and celebrity getaway that debuted in 1938. The breezy retreat overlooking the Pacific transformed to Las Brisas in 1979, yet still retained the beauty and charm of a romantic, bygone era.
