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

We decided to try GG's Bistro after a day at the beach. We are happy to say it was a great decision. The food was delicious and fresh. The service was outstanding. It was nice to have water at the table to fill our own glasses when we were ready as well. The Gyro was outstanding and tasty as was... 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...

Small Mediterranean restaurant with very accommodating staff. My wife's salad had too much dressing on it and they brought her a new one without question. My swordfish kebabs were wonderful - well marinated and cooked great.

Coming from Detroit, where outstanding Middle Eastern food is everywhere, this place is average. Passionate and knowledgeable service gently pushes the middle eastern side of the Italian split menu. It's a good safe alternative for something different in the area and they have some nice Happy Hour deals on drinks which I felt were made with a 'good pour' for... More

I had lunch there during the week with my husband and we loved it! So many good food options! WE LOVED the calamari! It was the best! I had the shrimp with avocado which was ok and my husband had a typical dish from the middle east which I don't recall the name of it! Staff is super friendly and... More

Very interesting Mediterranean style restaurant. Husband had a rice salad with chicken dried fruits and nuts. I had a chicken sandwich. Portions are plentiful and service is good.

Had dinner here, and decided to split few starters rather than order main courses. So we had: Fried mozzarella sticks:ok, but the breadcrumbs were too thick Caprese salad: great, but then it's just tomato and cheese, nothing to cook! Calimari: delicious and really not oily. Avocado and prawn: again, not too much cooking involved, but fabulous. It's a busy, popular... More
