We have come here for years and their huge menus and good service are the key for us. There is indoor and outdoor seating and again we choose to visit mostly not during tourist season. Great to sit outside especially at sunset and just enjoy. We have had to find our dishes that we like but always interesting to bring... More

The setting is nice but the food is just average. I am from Eastern Europe so know how Mediterranean food should taste. It's not the worst I've had but always like to hold these establishments to a higher standard to elevate public's taste and expectations.

My husband, four children, and I were very excited to try out GG's since it got so many positive reviews. The atmosphere (we were outside) was beautiful with all the twinkling lights. As we were looking at the menu, I noticed in small letters at the bottom -- they were going to charge an extra 20% tax for parties of... More

Wonderful location on the PCH. Excellent Greek/Turkish/Italian menu, but you should stick to the Greek/Turkish side of the menu. This is authentic. Hummus and falafel was excellent. The squid was a single, large steak - simple and tasty. Avocado/shrimp starter was solid. Shish kabab chicken was soft. Portions were very large, do not over order! Overall, great meal.

This is a great place to get a refreshing, fresh meal in Laguna Beach. We sat outside on the patio as the sun set, a gentle breeze blew and soft music played. Our food was fresh and delicious. Service was great. So many of the places in Laguna are too crowed, too noisy and too expensive. What a great place... More

This restaurant has a nice streetfront dining area that is cozy and quiet and surprisingly wasn't too busy when we ate there. I had the chicken panini and the chicken was moist and super flavorful and probably one of the best I've eaten and I am very picky. The foccacia bread was just right and fries and salad were also...
