I've eaten here many times. Thai calamari, lobster risotto, filet mignon, macaroni and cheese, fish specials are always excellent.

“K'ya Bitro”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

We stopped by at thi quaint hotel, bar & restaurant before an other appointment and were pleasently surprised with with the atmosphere. The bar was not noisy even though it was moderately full. They have another bar on the roof with a great view of the ocean. The food was excellent and the staff efficient.

“Nice dinner”
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.................”
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 !!!
