Rooftop delight

The restaurant and bar on the roof top is laid-back and offers ocean views from almost every table. The food is pretty good, especially if you enjoy curry style dishes. Our waitress recommended some awesome dishes and drinks, the food was good, but the drinks seemed watered down and did not impress... read more

Dined here for a large group dinner. The menu was prefixed and offered a simple selection. We were expecting flavors from Africa but the entrees were simple. Again our menu was prefixed so that may have a lot to do with flavors. We both had filet and lobster and overall flavor was average. Dessert was great and consisted of a... More

We were kooking for a fun, late night spot in Laguna with my two adult aged daughters and their friend who was visiting. From the moment we stepped into the 2nd floor area, the vibe was perfect! Great music was coming from the bar and we were immediately seated at a good table where we could hear the music yet... More

Our waiter was personable. The restaurant is very noisy. One of our dinners was way over cooked(pork chop) and served well after the other three dinners arrived. One of the other dinners arrived missing the tomatoes listed on the menu. A disappointing experience especially for their price point. We will not return. The competition in Laguna Beach is stiff, and... More

We stopped for lunch which was served only on the rooftop. I loved it up there, it was relaxing and you had a view of the water, even though it is across the street. I had an order of grilled Barramundi, which was reasonably priced, a large piece, and it came with a side of fries and a small Salad.... More

The food here was average. A little bit pricey for what we got. They have valet parking if you can't find street parking, but I've never had any trouble finding parking. The live music was pretty good, but the dance floor got so busy it's hard to be in there too long without getting claustrophobic. A cool place to come... More

I visited on 4th July. The food was awful. My partner's scampi arrived as prawns in tomato sauce and my burger was so dry it was almost inedible. By far the most disappointing restaurant on any of my visits to the US. To top it off I received an email complaining that I'd failed to honour my booking. I wish... More

The roof top patio is where I had dinner for a company event and the sunset is spectacular, definitely worth the price of placing a deposit for a roof top table reservation. The food was delicious, we had seafood, vegan and a variety of appetizers, deserts and drinks and were all fantastic. There is a bar on the roof top... More

Top notch place. It is like four restaurants in one. We ate at the steakhouse and it was fabulous. Excellent wedge salad with olive and tomato relish. Delicious peri peri chicken and homemade all beef sausage. Superb New York Steak. Amazing South African blend red wine (Chocolate Block). Flawless service. This is a great place. Highly recommended.
