Seven Savory Places to Sample in Laguna Beach


They say visitors come to Laguna Beach for the view and stay for the food! The wide range of restaurants covers all prices and tastes, from gastropub fare to classic French cuisine.

However, with such a superb selection of tempting restaurants, you may have to extend your stay to do them all justice! Here are seven of the best:

   
Las Brisaslaguna beach's best restaurants

361 Cliff Drive, Laguna Beach

On your first morning in Laguna Beach, head down to Las Brisas for the best brunch in town, and set the tone for a gastronomy-centered vacation. This historic restaurant has been a magnet for visitors here since opening in 1938. The tables offer stunning views of the Pacific to add to the pleasure of sampling fresh seafood, exquisite entrees and, of course, that famous brunch. Enjoy!

   
French 75 Bistro

1464 South Coast Hightway, Laguna Beach

This upscale bistro offers authentic French cuisine without the overseas flight! It is best known for its lighter-than-air soufflés, so make sure to leave room for their chocolate version as the perfect dessert! You can round off your meal with a nightcap at the bar. The excellent French menu is complemented by the relaxing ambience and perfect service.

   
House of Big Fish and Ice Cold Beer

540 South Coast Highway, Laguna Beach

The name says it all! This eatery offers a wide selection of fresh fish and seafood, served in an informal dining area overlooking the ocean. The menu includes juicy burgers and Baja favorites for carnivores, too. Wash down the excellent food with one of over 70 varieties of ice cold beer.

   
Ti Amo

31727 South Coast Highway, Laguna Beach

This Zagat-rated Italian/Mediterranean restaurant, set in a Tuscan villa-style house, is a popular place for romantic meals for two. The fireplace, tasteful décor and chandeliers make you feel like you’re being entertained by good friends. Many celebrities, from Billy Joel to Magic Johnson, have dined here and signed the menu. Enjoy Chilean Sea Bass on a cedar plank or Ossa Bucco. Abbondanza!

   
K’ya Bistro

1287 South Coast Highway, Laguna Beach

If you fancy lighter fare, K’ya Bistro Bar serves signature small plates from a diverse menu designed to tickle the palate. Whet your appetite with seared filet mignon tips with horseradish or petite burgers before moving on to Shrimp Ettouffe or BBQ Baby Back Ribs to die for.


Starfish

If you fancy a taste of Asia, Starfish offers a fusion of flavors based on Thai, Vietnamese, Korean and Chinese cuisines. The restaurant offers a sophisticated, upscale ambience appreciated by the locals.

 

Zoolu Café
