One of the best restaurant values in Laguna Beach. And the variety of choices makes it hard to decide what to order next. Happy hour goes from 4:30 to 5:30 where the drinks are discounted. They also take reservations and due to the popularity it is a good idea to make a reservation.

The roof-top is special, down-stair restaurant is really good, but if you can get to the roof to experience a great sunset, do it. I got married on the roof-top at sunset a few years ago so I'm biased but you don't have to go that far to fall in love with the Pacific Ocean view from this place!!

A rather unusual spot in Laguna Beach. A nice restaurant with decent prices and not much pretension. The crowd can be a bit odd, but enjoy any way. The food is very good and the staff is awfully nice.

Looking for a place where a group of long time friends met in CA, wished to visit and still are able to have a civilised conversation while having bites and drinks. This was the place that deliverd exactly what we were looking for.

We had no plans when we showed up to Laguna. However, we happen to stumble upon this amazing restaurant and LOVED it. All I have to say is Lobster Mac N Cheese. Do it! You won't be disappointed!

This restaurant provided our best meal while in Laguna! The poke was better than any I had in Hawaii, the Avocado-truffle pecorino tomato toast was amazing and the filet mignon tips were cooked perfectly, tender and delicious! The waiter recommended the Farm salad and it was really good. The risotta was not the best and we wanted to try a... More

We had a short stay at La Casa del Camino and after spending a few hours with friends upstairs at The Rooftop Bar, decided we needed some real sustenance. We took a peak at K'ya's menu and chose to stay. A great surprise! The menu consists of shareables or small plates, primarily. Well, portions are not so small and incredibly... More

We came here for my birthday dinner because we liked the idea of tapas style dining and trying/sharing all the interesting dishes. I will say the food was good in general and the portions were quite large (enough for 3-4 adults to each have some of each dish) and reasonably priced. What made our experience poor was there is NO... More

Sit and relax, have a craft beer or a glass of wine and watch the people go by. Grab a little to eat and the appetizers are great.
