Really nice place to enjoy an amazing sunset. Better arrive early though! Only few seats available and the rooftop is not that big, we were lucky enough to get a table just when two people were leaving. Food and drinks are really good, a bit pricey, but thats for the view :-)

Recommended by a local, this is a great place for food or just drinks. Ahi sandwich, burger, lobster on toast, and the steak bowl were ordered by our group. All were excellent. Mango mojito and mai tai were very well prepared. Check the rooftop out, you won't be disappointed.

The Rooftop Lounge has wonderful views from all sides. It circle around half of the building so there are many different views. Plan on waiting a bit and arrive well before sunset or you will probably be standing for it because seating is limited for the crowd they draw. It is a friendly crowd and I have been welcomed by...

The Rooftop Lounge is a nice place to enjoy the sunset. Wide variety of clientele. Drinks are ok, food is average at best. Unless you enjoy the bar scene, it's best to leave after the sunset and find dinner elsewhere. Service can be sub-par.

Great views, fun food, exciting people. Everyone is having fun. Can be crowded at lunch and sunsets. Definitely a place to go and enjoy. Have been there from there opening years ago and continue to go 2-3 times a month. Always a good time and good eats.

Nice rooftop area on top of La Casa del Camino hotel. You can take the elevator or stairs up to the top. You seat yourself like on an honor system. It is not a large space so there can be a wait for the tables. The food and drinks were okay. Parking was harder to find along the streets. I'm... More

A great place to enjoy wine or a cocktail and watch the sunset. The place was super busy but we managed to get a table to enjoy the sunset. They have little blankets and heaters to keep you warm too. We aware this is not a restaurant.

We came for lunch, had to get our own table since it is first come first serve..... The food was not very good, especially the Lobster Mac and Cheese... The issue with this place is the other people hovering to get your table like vultures eating a dead animal... On three desperate occasions we were asked when we were leaving........ More

this is our go - to place when we are here with a car - the traffic makes the drive a little less fun, but once we get to Laguna Beach we know we are in for a very enjoyable afternoon. The Rooftop Lounge is fun, active, breezy ( after all, you are up on a roof right over the... More
