Good food...amazing views!

A must stop when in LB. The restaurant is on a cliff overlooking the ocean and Laguna Beach. Beautiful at anytime of the day.

My wife and I had a great time here. The view was outstanding and everyone was very nice. The food and drinks were also great. We liked it so much we went there every night we were in Laguna Beach.

For those of you who like your seafood with your tacos, these come highly recommended!! I had the calamari (lightly fried) and shrimp (grilled) (you can combine fish, shrimp or calamari) tacos with a sauvignon blanc and it was amazing. Be advised - these are not your $2-4 tacos that you see on Taco Tuesday at other places! They were... More

Seriously.....we had an excellent meal, but I think that even if we hadn't, the view would have made it just fine! We waited 90 minutes on a busy Saturday afternoon, but the bar was open and we were in no hurry, so why not? Wait however long it takes to get a table on the rail, and enjoy the amazing... More

Came here for a late breakfast on a Saturday and only waited about 5 min. for a table overlooking the water. The view, service, drinks and food were all wonderful. Will definitely go back.

We ate breakfast, lunch and supper here over the course of our trip. Everything from the omelettes to the oysters was fresh and very good. There were plenty of heaters and the view was just perfect. It was a lovely place for a meal at Laguna Beach. Dogs are allowed only on the upper patio area. That was not a... More
