Fresh and tasty produce is the hallmark of this popular restaurant right on PCH. Salads are excellent, as are the seafood entrees. Can get a little loud.

The restaurant has a nice contemporary decor, in the center of Laguna Beach. Upstairs are two tables outside under an old pepper tree which is enchanting. The food is delicious. I really love the small plates with perfect little tastings.

Our waiter was great, the food was not so great. I ordered lamb chop appetizers medium, they came out raw and grossly over salted. We also had a shrimp appetizer special that was terrible. The burrata was ok
