Very popular...get there early!

The Rooftop is the most popular location in Laguna for cocktails during sunset. It is almost impossible to get a seat at a table or high top unless you arrive a few hours before sunset and stay until sundown.

My son and daughter in law took me to The Rooftop Lounge for dinner. Our table wasn't ready so we found two seats up on the rooftop bar overlooking the ocean, beautiful. I had my first mojito, mango flavored. It was so delicious I had two. It's a man meet woman type of scene. Interesting to watch the mating rituals.... More

Lunch or dinner is a real treat here. The food does not disappoint accompanied by the outstanding ocean views. The mini meatballs are especially good. One of the most delightful Laguna landmarks so popular with locals.

We left this place because it was so crowded. It's a funky place where you have to go up some old carpeted steps. Wasn't our cup of tea. Seems like it's a bunch of locals.

Great location at the La Casa Del Camino Hotel the roof top has that excellent ocean view, while having cocktails and watching the sun go down. In the dark of the evening you can capture the view of the lights of Laguna Beach providing an interesting view.

Stayed at the hotel. Went up to enjoy view and visit with family. We were asked to leave when lunch crowd arrived unless we ordered something. Umbrella next to our table was broken so no shade. Never did go back.

Sometimes you get a beautiful view, but have to sacrifice the food quality. Not here...Food is delicious [love the chicken empanadas] and the view is incredible. Usually first come, first served. So, depending on the time of day, you may have a wait. We noticed tables reserved for the evening, so that may be an option. Best location: at the... More

Situated on a rooftop with a beautiful view of the beach, The Rooftop also boasted delicious food and drinks. We had Bloody Marys, Hummus platter, and coconut shrimp appetizer. All were delicious! The view is unparalleled and the service was friendly. Our server, Kat, made us feel right at home.
