The Happy Hour is very good. The small plates and drinks were delicious. My favorite was the lobster mac & cheese and the pomegranate martini. The burger sliders were juicy and flavorful. You can't go wrong. We were seated in the bar area where you first come in. This area is small, so you may want to get there early.... More

Lots of little plates are great for sharing. Order different dishes and share them all. Casual and loud but worth a visit.

This was my first visit to K,ya Bistro and in spite of eating mediocre food, experiencing poor to almost belligerent service at the rooftop bar, I can't wait to go back. The location and atmosphere is fabulous. Sitting in the restaurant, I almost felt like I was in the Mediterranean somewhere, there was a comfort level that I haven't experienced... More

This one of the best happy hours that I've been to in a long time. The prices were very reasonable for tapas and drinks. We got a bottle of wine for $32! And it was really good! The items on the menu were very appealing for people of different tastes. It wasn't all deep fried foods or all heavy with... More

Tapas and cocktails? YES, this is your spot. I love the small plates they offer, it's perfect to share with friends and gives you the opportunity to try many different dishes. Everything is delicious, seriously everything is good. AND the Rooftop Bar at sunset is AMAZING and provides for an awesome view of the coastline.

While visiting Laguna Beach, CA recently we happened upon this fantastic restaurant located at the Hotel Casa del Camino on S coast Hwy. An extensive array of snacks, salads ,pasta, seafood, meats and desserts are served in small appetizer-sized portions meant to be shared. The wine list included many of our favorite reds and whites at reasonable prices (for the... More

Awesome food, everything we had was good. The plates are a little small but thats a good thing because you'll want to try everything you possibly can! Prices were very good for being in any city with Laguna in the name!

We took my mother in law to Ky'a for her birthday and had a wonderful experience. Although it's a small plate affair, the quality and flavor was excellent. Must try the bacon wrapped dates! After dinner, walk upstairs for one of the best views in Orange County at the Rooftop Bar.
