We came here once during the beginning of the pandemic because the seats were so spaced apart. We were seated right away. It was nice that the seats are far apart. I had the Arugula salad with goat cheese it was amazing. The food is...a decent price for Laguna. Overall we have come back here before because of the ambiance. It's def a recommend go to place.More

Located on Pacific Coast Highway between Laguna Avenue and Legion Street, GG’s Bistro specializes in Turkish-Mediterranean and Italian cuisine served both indoors and on an outdoor heated patio. They are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They offer a kids’ menu and (this being located...in health-conscious Laguna Beach) a gluten-free menu. Parking is always a challenge in Laguna Beach, so if you can’t find street parking nearby try the parking structure on Glenneyre Street. Our visit came during the COVID-19 pandemic, so the dining room was closed. It was a surprisingly mild August day near the beach, so we happily accepted a table in their outdoor dining patio. We started with a bruschetta appetizer, which we devoured immediately. My wife ordered chicken kebabs (with rice pilaf, roasted vegetables, pita bread and yogurt dressing), my son selected their Iskender Kebab (thinly sliced gyro meat served on cubed pita bread topped with yogurt and crushed tomato sauce), while I opted for a Caesar salad topped with gyro meat. All our entrees were prepared with care and artfully presented. We enjoyed our dinner immensely. First-time visitors to the area should NOTE that Laguna Beach is an expensive, upscale tourist town, and the prices at GG’s Bistro certainly reflect that; you will not find any bargains on their menu. On the other hand, the prices are not out of line with neighboring eateries. Plus, the service we received was excellent, the portions were generous and the outdoor setting near the ocean was very pleasant. So, if you understand it will be expensive going in, you will experience fall less “sticker shock.” We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at GG’s Bistro and will no doubt return in the future.More

Loved GG's! Our server, Manu, who also served us a year ago, continues to be a very kind and informative server. The food is fabulous! I recommend sitting in the outside area along the sidewalk. What impressed me is that they have a GLUTEN FREE...menu!!! As a starter we had the Hummus Trio, Olive, cilantro-jalapeno, plain humus, gluten-free bread & celery! I had several :) of the Raspberry Kiss cocktails YUMMY! I then had the CHARBROILED CALAMARI STEAK, Grilled squid tube served on a bed of mashed potatoes, arugula, topped with olive oil, herbs, garlic sauce & tartar sauce, to die for!!!! My husband had a salad with gyro meat.More

This was our “go-to” place while staying in Laguna Beach. It has an extensive GF menu and they clearly understand how to deal with coeliac disease. Also a good kids menu. We found the pastas and salads very tasty, and the service always friendly. They...have a great covered outdoor patio to enjoy the fresh air. If you want a good-quality but family-friendly/casual place with reliable GF selections, we definitely recommend GG’s!More

Came across this gem while walking around Laguna and it is now a new favorite! The customer service was excellent! The waitresses were friendly, attentive and happy to answer our questions about the menu. The food was delicious and fresh, everything from the bread with...olive oil to their salads and pasta. Highly recommend!More

After reviewing menus on line looking specifically for Gluten free options, we chose GG's Bistro. The best entree turned out to be the chicken pasta dish prepared gluten free. My Famous Iskender Kebab was over-sauced which hid the flavor of the gyro meat. That was...a bit disappointing.More

Just went in to have their berry sangria drink and ended up eating a Doner (Gyro) Pita, calamari Fritti, lobster ravioli, and not to miss the desert, a Molten chocolate Soufflé. Everyone was happy with their choices. The waitress was very nice and friendly. Actually...everyone working there, was very nice and friendly. There is a nice view and a pleasant location. Give it a try if you enjoy Mediterranean dishes.More
