Stopped in while doing some sightseeing in the area. I love cioppino (Italian seafood stew) so I thought I would give theirs a try. It was the best I've had.

before sunset, u should come here. The cuisine was awesome. You can taste delicious starters, and then keep going with seafood. a little expensive comparing the other seafood restaurants. P.S.: dont forget take an ice cream from Gelato Paradiso after meal.

Cool place, right in the heart of Laguna. The bar is usually busy. Their ribs are very good, the menu offers a variety of tasty items. Have been here several times and have enjoyed the evening.

Nick's is a regular staple in town. The only problem can be when it's busy you'll need to wait for a table.

Wide selection of items to choose from. I had the chicken and it was quite good and had an excellent salad with it. A little on the expensive side however good food and nice atmosphere. Always nice to be checked on by the waiter but they almost did it too often. Three different people asking if meal was OK.
