We stumbled across this cute little restaurant on a cool June evening. We had just arrived from Australia and during our casual strolls past this restaurant, we couldn't help to notice this quaint, cosy looking restaurant to be constantly bustling with people. We were so delighted, we ate there three nights in a row! The food couldn't be faulted. All... More

Place was packed so glad we had a reservation. We were brought right to our table with no wait. Great waiter very attentive and talked about the different choices of food. We ordered the truffle fries, veggie risotto, fire cracker shrimp, some date appetizer.. This was plenty of food and it was very good.

We have been here countless times and always loved the food, service and atmosphere. Unfortunately, that's not the case anymore. The food is no longer good at all. We had over salted meat and chicken and over salted food in general. Even our moulten cake was over cooked. In fact it was not moulten at all!!! We took friends from... More

During a recent trip to Laguna we met friends here for dinner. I concur with other diners that the room was fairly noisy, but that seems to be a common occurrence in restaurant design and we were able to carry on a conversation. The "small plates" menu is meant to be shared, and we did some of that, but also... More

We can't say enough about our experience at K'ya. We stayed as hotel guests in La Casa del Camino and K'ya honored us by giving us a reservation right at 6:30pm. We LOVED it. They serve everything as single plates (tapas restaurant style) and the selection is fantastic. We enjoyed bacon-wrapped dates with blue cheese, truffle fries, lamb, filet mignon,... More

A broad menu of small plate dishes which means you can try a variety of meals and still be left with loads to try on another visit. Value for money amazing.

Our little Laguna Local secret of beginning the evening with a sundowner on the roof deck and then heading downstairs for a delicious dinner at K'ya has been discovered! Wow, very busy and crowded now that it is summer time, even on weeknights! But go anyway -- their small plate menu continues to be a huge hit, you can dine... More
