Dining in Laguna Beach

Some of the finest dining establishments in Orange County, California, can be found in Laguna Beach. Casa Laguna's guests are able to peruse a portfolio of local restaurant menus in our Mission House lobby, and our staff is always eager to assist guests with choosing a restaurant or making reservations. To help with your travel planning, we've included a complete list of Laguna Beach restaurants below. We always recommend advance reservations, especially on weekends.

Two fine-dining restaurants are within walking distance of Casa Laguna: Dizz’s As-Is (949-494-5250) features an ever-changing menu of traditional continental cuisine in an eclectic setting; and, the highly Zagat-rated Tabu Grill (949-494-7743) offers a wide variety of gourmet fare for just about every preference-supplemented by a superb wine list. Casa Laguna staff and management have a number of other favorite restaurants, including but not limited to:

Broadway by Amar Santana: Features an ever-changing Modern American Cuisine menu served in a "industrial New York" setting. Chef-owned.

Nirvana Grille: Also a chef-owned restaurant. Serves locally-sourced, all natural Contemporary California Cuisine in a classic, romantic setting.

Carmelitas: Mexican food for those who prefer traditional south-of-the-border fare done at its best. Casual downtown street-corner setting.

Cafe Zoolu: A family-run neighborhood cafe serving arguably the best seafood on the South Coast. Large portions. Limited seating. Can be bustling--but worth it.

Madison Square & Garden Café: An outdoor lunch cafe in the Old Laguna style. Order at the counter, then pick a seat. Very casual and pooch-friendly.

Studio at Montage: An elegant high-end restaurant for that special night when cost is not as important as the very best food, wine, setting, and service.

Mozambique: Classic dining featuring steak, seafood, and peri-peri. Lively bar scene with live bands. Fantastic view with small plates and drinks on the rooftop.

Sapphire: Where locals lunch. A quality fine-dining restaurant serving a variety of California Cuisine on one of the largest outdoor patios in town. Chef-owned.

Ristorante Rumari: Laguna Beach has more than its share of good Italian restaurants. This is our favorite for food quality, service, and price. And, it's only 1/4 mile from the inn.

Selanne Steak Tavern: Our favorite after-work place for a martini and some great small plates, especially the soup that changes daily. Also the perfect special occasion restaurant with fabulous steaks and seafood. Prices match the quality. Make your reservations early or arrive before 6pm for bar seating. This place fills up fast. Closed Mondays.
