No ocean view but the food is very good. Small plates. Short rib penne pasta is very good and is a generous portion. Also, enjoyed the burrata toasts. We brought our own wine ($15 corkage) so I can't talk about the drink menu.

They have redecorated since last year and the ambience seems significantly less noisy--a plus! Tapas and small plates are delightful, as usual. Wine is a bit pricey but ordering drops the cost of food to half price. Not a bad idea!

Four of us enjoyed our meal here. We opted to share "small" plates. It's pretty noisy, so prepare to speak loudly and say "what??" fairly frequently. Everything we had was very good. Service was great.

K'ya is a fun place whether you eat inside or out on the rooftop. The items for sharing are all delicious and well worth more than one visit. The happy hour menu is so very affordable.

With small plates and an emphasis on sharing, K'ya Bistro Bar offers a diverse menu with flavors from the Mediterranean and a local bistro appeal. This bustling bistro is a stone's throw from the beach and reflects a lively San Francisco-esque atmosphere. Guests can enjoy a private table, or have a drink by the fireplace before or after dinner in the comfortable lobby lounge featuring live entertainment.
