“Nice dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

Food is very good here and I would say affordable as it's in the form of tapas. Service was OK and the place is quite loud. Good food tho.

“3 nights in a row.................”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014

We first went to K'ya Bistro on the recommendation of someone we met at the Laguna Beach visitor's center........4:30-5:30 Happy hour............kind of early hours but SO worth it........We went back the following 2 nights that we were in the area. WHY go anywhere else ? Yes it is very noisy.........BUT the excellent food more than makes up for the bad acoustics.....We had something different every night..................the wait staff was awesome.... particularly Janette............and even better.... they take reservations !!!

“So, So”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2014

The service was excellent, but the food was definitely average. the seared ahi was very good but The red snapper was not very fresh and the pasta with shrimp was swimming in oil and grease. The desserts were good. Good value for money but not worth the trip there.

“Love those little plates!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2014

We enjoyed the food tremendously -- small plates with slightly smaller portions that were just right! The place was packed inside and on the roof, so we opted for a table "on the sidewalk," thinking it might be noisy but it was surprisingly quieter than indoors! The service was quite good as well. Parking can be a challenge.

“DELICIOUS!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2014

Sat out on the patio, it was rather noisy and packed inside. Live music was fantastic. Service was fast, had grilled chicken and veggies, portion was satisfying. My friend ordered a burger platter and she was in heaven. White wine was delicious and chilled. Ambiance was enjoyable. Very happy. Be sure to try out the rooftop terrace..the view will take your breath away!!!
