If you like eating and feel like you are part of a big international family, GG’s family run restaurant is your destination. You meet locals and many that emigrated from Turkey, Denmark, Switzerland, Germany, Greece, UK. I must admit, I am Austrian and because of this reason I became a fan and eat at GG's once a week.

We ate lunch here while exploring and it was so good! Highly recommend it! The Caesar salad was super tasty and the fresh sweetened Iced tea was also a surprisingly nice treat!

Our hotel clerk at the Holiday Inn Laguna Beach (wonderful quaint property, btw) recommended this bistro and I am so glad she did. It was a quiet evening at the restaurant and we sat inside at a quiet table to the left, facing the front door. The lights were low and we were admiring the soft details in the decor.... More

We were really looking forward to our Christmas evening meal at this place. Unfortunately we should have realised it wasn't meant to be when they tried to cram 6 of us on a table suitable for 4 when we'd clearly made a reservation for 6 people at 7pm. This implies they let anyone in without a thought for making space... More

We have come here for years and their huge menus and good service are the key for us. There is indoor and outdoor seating and again we choose to visit mostly not during tourist season.

The setting is nice but the food is just average. I am from Eastern Europe so know how Mediterranean food should taste. It's not the worst I've had but always like to hold these establishments to a higher standard to elevate public's taste and expectations.
