“A top addition to Laguna restaurants!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2011

We had dinner on a Thursday evening, and were blown away by the delightful service, exquisite food, and friendly atmosphere. This is a small restaurant on the ocean side of PCH south of downtown. It;s well worth visiting.

We split a ratatouille that was totally exquisite. Then my BH had a pork chop that she called the best she had ever had. I chose a skirt steak that was deliciously juicy, perfectly cooked over the wood grill, and wonderfully seasoned.

The wine list was relatively short, but had some delicious slelections, We had an Argentinian Malbec by the glass (a very full pour - about a third of a bottle each.

We will be going back again and again. Do yourself a favor, and give this gem a try. You won't be sorry! Closed on Monday, Prix-fixe-only menus on Friday (fish) and Saturday (Farmer's Market specials) Wine and beer only.

“Awesome Argentinian food in Laguna!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2011

We had the pleasure of dining at Maro when we were in Laguna. The food and service were outstanding. It is a very tiny place, seating only seventeen people or so but they accept reservations. The patio where most of the tables are is heated by a fire pit and heat lamps so were kept comfortable on a chilly night. The food was wonderful, we had the skirt steak which was grilled to perfection, wood fired edamame which were better than any Japanese edamame appetizer. The sangria, empanadas, soups, desserts and coffee were all beyond compare. We would go back in an instant. They also do prix fixe chefs dinners where the menu changes on a daily basis and I think with anything you have here you cannot go wrong. The young couple that own the restaurant are very kind and generous as well.
