We had a really good meal at this restaurant, the quality of the food was excellent. We had the Filet Three Ways and the Poultry Paella. Both dishes were superb - tasty and not over cooked which we had read from other tripadvisor contributors was sometimes the case, so we asked for the filet to be cooked medium rare and it ended up being a perfect medium! Our only criticism is that because it is very busy, the service on occasion, felt a little rushed, but otherwise a very enjoyable experience.

Saturday chilling in laguna.
Grabbed a table by the window, interesting that all the servers hang around the reception area, shielded from the diners with a Woden partition.
Maybe that is why we had several servers, the food was excellent, a first rate burger.
An act of congress to get our check, actually my wife ventured across the wooden staff/customer shield to request our check.
It arrived!
It's not our check, the server explained that is must be a mistake, I explained that would make sense as we had several servers (the restaurant was 80% empty), we settled up the check after I adjusted the tip to reflect amateur hour..........

Not a lot wrong here. Service is pleasant, food is very good. Decor is nice, better upstairs, a little less busy. We did veggie side dishes as appetizers (the way to go.) Mains were all very solid. Skipped desert, as most do, to visit gelato place next door.

With our ordering the total price was reasonable. If you went for apps and mains and desert with wine, you would run over $100 per head. We were closer to half that. The table next to us, 8 people, did 4 apps and 4 mains, and split them. They said it worked fine and there was plenty for them. they got out at close to the same price per head as we did.

Enjoyed a wonderful lunch here. The Ruben sandwich and Bistro platter is what we order with some killer beer. Service and food wonderful and we sat on the side patio which made for great people watching!

Kudos to this place. They were out of places to sit at the bar with a wheelchair so they let us sit on the other side and still order from the Happy Hour menu before 6 pm. Ordered 4 small plates for $6 each and $5 drinks. They were all delicious and the margaritas were very good. Nice people.
