Best Meal in Laguna

We went here on Saturday evening, we had a reservation and still had to wait about 15 minutes. I HIGHLY recommend a reservation, and I would call they dont seem to put all their reservations on opentable, so you are better to call. The drinks were great and the food was awesome.

I adore the paella here it's fresh full of seafood instead of lots of rice small portions of seafood n very flavorful spiced perfectly n they accommodate special diet requests without feeling cheated Warm bread n flavored butter starts the meal gone over 20 times great every time everything is great can be noisy in the summer but worth it

My wife and I enjoyed a delicious lunch at the bar . We shared a prosciutto and arugula flatbread with fig jam and three garlic salmon tacos. Both were terrific. The wine selection is excellent as was the service . We will definitely return .

Great service from the hostesses and manager, to our server - you can have great food, but if the staff doesn't measure up, it doesn't work -- this restaurant worked in every way. Being that it was Valentine's day, you would have thought we'd be plowed through and rushed along -- not the case. Our server was exceptional, the wine... More

recommend asking for seating upstairs it was intimate unique setting. Our family of 6 ate there on Christmas Eve age 14-52 and each of us loved what we had. The menu is varied enough but not too many choices where nothing is special. Drinks were good Service is timely.

Have been here for dinner on previous trips to Laguna Beach. Stopped for lunch. The menu looked more inviting than the competition. Got a front row window seat. Chose to share the fish tacos. Wow! This may be the best fish tacos that I have ever had. Needed to order more. Yum!

This was recommended by a shop keeper. We had a flatbread with mushrooms, cheese and more. Also, a recommended pepper chicken sandwich. Both were excellent and around $12 each. The sandwich came with one side-fries or salad. My husband was treated to a complimentary birthday treat- a croissant ,white chocolate and macadamia bread pudding with a side of ice cream.... More
