Positive energy, smiling faces, great Sangria, very nice Mediterrennean food, and Turkish tea, and more... We felt very good here and had fantastic time thanks to the owners who pour their heart into what they serve.

Interesting menu but we stuck with lobster ravioli for me and a corkscrew chicken pasta dish for my wife. Chicken a bit bland and she said too much garlic in the sauce for her. I tasted it and it was fine for me. My ravioli had a rose sauce (I prefer white or red) that was not bad and three... More

We had a dinner for four, outside, and each enjoyed a different entree. I had the gyro dinner, which had large portions, with yummy rice. My children each different pasta dishes, all large and very good. Good, attentive service too.

Fun atmosphere and a nice location, but the food was just not very good. Even the hummus was bland. I could handle the food if the price matched, but this restaurant is very over-priced. I would not recommend this place for lunch or supper. You can find something better for your money.

The restaurant has wonderful outside seating with heaters for colder nights. The food was not great, and quite expensive.

We enjoyed our dinner at GG's Bistro, even though the shish-ke-bobs were tougher than a tire. The Al Fresco dining and great Laguna Beach scenery was festive. The server was cheerful and informative. Alas, the falafel appetizer was also overdone, More like little hockey pucks. But we stillliked this place... maybe if we had ordered soething else. I would give... More

We love to come down for Happy Hours to GG's, the owner make the best dirty martini's and on Wednesdays after 7pm they have a small group of musicians playing and Victoria ( singer from New York ) sings. Very nice place to get together with friends or for couples. I love the appetizers and salads.

When we walked by this lovely restaurant in Laguna Beach, we were drawn in by its menu. Although the name implies Italian food, the offerings are more Mediterranean-Greek and Turkish. The food was absolutely delicious. Service was excellent too Moreover, I never expected to eat at such a sophisticated venue at a beach resort. The best restaurant in Laguna Beach!
