Good drinks, and view, view, views, great for the sunset romances. Not a meeting place, couples rule.

We spotted the rooftop umbrellas as we passed in the car, and investigated this bar on a hotel rooftop. We had to wait ten minutes hovering for a table (irritatingly, they don't have an orderly system for queuing), but it was worth it. Lovely fresh salads, and a small range of other simple dishes. Good ambience and a great view.

Visited around 5pm and watched the sun go down. Very cool spot with table or bar seating. Heaters were out because it was winter. The staff also provide lap blankets on request if you get cold, which is a nice touch. I drank margaritas and ate the coconut shrimp. All really good - but the view is the real hero... More

Enjoyed the most spectacular sunset & cocktails at this laid back roof top bar. Happy hour is from 3 pm and lasts all night Monday's to Wednesday's. Our waitress was friendly & helpful. The coconut shrimp was a delicious bar snack.

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. As they missed an ingredient on one of our orders they replaced it on the house. The view on the Ocean is unbeatable it was hard... More

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
