This is a must try Laguna spot! Located up from the beach on the main drag but up a few floors and on the roof so there is a great view at almost all tables. We got there after 2:30pm so they were only offering appetizers.

My daughter and her boyfriend come here regularly. My husband and I were visiting them from out of town, and they wanted us to have lunch here. The view is beautiful. The food is good. The service was a little too chill for our liking. There were maybe 3 other tables that were occupied. We had to chase down the... More

We came for lunch a bit after noon on Thursday and were lucky to find 3 seats at the bar. The food is good, we checked the BLT sandwich and the lobster chopped salad.

Can't beat the view. It is just amazing. They have some decent Mojitos. Beer menu was not that great but will do. Have not eaten here so can't say anything about it. Pricing considering the location is good.

The view is obviously the reason why we initially came to this eatery, but were quickly surprised by the great service and amazing food! They even had empanadas! It's slightly tricky to locate unless you know exactly where you are going, but you enter the hotel, walk through the lobby and take the elevator upstairs to the rooftop. Since I... More

The hotel, Casa del Camino, could use some work, but the rooftop bar is a great place to sit, watch the ocean and enjoy an adult beverage. Mojitos seem to be their specialty.

Had an app along with a drink here. Loved listening to the waves so close. I was there at night but the view is fantastic if during the day

Stellar sunset ocean view, but based on the disappointingly weak and flavorless $15 house margarita I had, I'd stick to the beer list.
