A beautiful restaurant in a beautiful location, K'ya Bistro was recommended and it is absolutely the best place to dine in Laguna Beach. If you can get there for happy hour from 4:30 to 5:30 you will have the best opportunity to sample their menu for a fraction of the price. We had the Lobster Mac-n-cheese, Fried Calamari, Swordfish Tacos... More

The three of us went in for dinner, one had previously been at K'ya. We shared three main dishes: KAZAAM! Excellent, superb, food and service. Couldn't resist, back we went the following week this time feasting on 4 dishes. You can't go wrong with any choice, make it a point to go, you will not regret it.

We had an awesome dinner here. The food and service were excellent. Seated in a window seat, the quality of the good was fantastic. Tuna poké which would be 20 dollars anywhere else was $10 and it was fantastic. This is a must do in Laguna. Completely reasonable prices for very large "small plate" portions.

Come for early bird special and be amazed what you can get for $5. Intimate space on ground floor of hotel Camino Real. Go for a drink on the roof before or after dinner for magnificent view.

We ate here 3 out of 4 nights in Laguna Beach. Everything we tried was delicious. The small plate portions are just right for sharing, and for sampling multiple tastes at one sitting. Great mojitos!

We had $25 a day to spend on food/drink during our week at the hotel where this wonderful restaurant resides. This, and the word around town that this is a local fave, led to us having some of the best meals of our vacation. I had a combo of pork rib meat with bacon wrapped shrimp served over potatoes and...
