Small space, big wins

A waitress at an earlier restaurant raved about Maro and how she had eaten lunch there that day. Very promising endorsement. My colleague from work also recommended the empanadas.

This is a tiny restaurant with a tiny bar area, so nowhere to wait if you happen to be early for your reservation, or just want to wait for a table. The service was pretty good and the vegetable dishes we had were nice - the brussels sprouts, green beans and the roasted cauliflower that came with my steak. Unfortunately... More

I literally had more delicious and appitizing hamburgers from McDonald's. My husband and I rarely eat unhealthy food and were excited to have grass fed beef burger but were very disappointed at this over seasoned fatty piece of meat. On the plus side the atmosphere and the service was outstanding.

One of my favorite restaurants to eat in Laguna Beach. Absolutely great food cooked on a wood fired grill. Love to sit at the bar and watch them cook. One of the best bread butter puddings I've ever enjoyed. Scottish salmon grilled is heavenly and a nice addition to a salad.

Food Done right, charred veggies clean and simple yet so delicious, small but well thought out wine list, will come back Sitting at the bar of the firepit/grill is great, but it does get warm but so worth it

we go there every 6 months to a year. excellent meat, empanadas and grilled veggies. unfortunately due to the small size of the resturaunt, everyone pays a large chunk of rent. it took us a visit to a popular great Argentinian Resturaunt to compare and really see the diff.

We ate here last week for the first time. We had the baseball steak and skirt steak. Everything was delicious. Try the banana pudding and hot cocoa if you leave room for dessert. We enjoyed the outdoor seating and will be back. Friendly staff and unique kitchen!

Ridiculously overpriced! We order an artichoke, a burger, 2 empanadas and 2 glasses of wine. All this for over $100.00. House wine was extremely pricey, food was average. Ambience ~ nothing special. We love Argentinian food... This is not worth it.

The food was really, really good, BUT I would not order a drink here. It is way too much to pay. Like, the least expensive chardonnay was 13 bucks, if I recall! They have a sangria for eight, but I'm sure it's sweet and full of fruit. Anyway, the food was really good and reasonably priced. I had a grass... More
