Everything was perfect other than a bit noisy. Quick service, nice atmosphere and excellent food. A bit pricey but all of Laguna is that way. We were happy to pay for the quality.

The place is always very busy with a lot of energy but not so loud that you can not carry on a conversation.

Many parking lots and street parking with meters. Beautiful walk and everything is in walking distance.
