The menu is very interesting, would like to taste several dishes! The lobster chowder was a bit bland, and Ahi Tuna had indeed spicy sauce which killed the taste of tuna itself. But anyway the food was okay, and I would have given 4 stars........More

K'ya Bistro Bar is located in the historic, coastal La Casa del Camino hotel in the heart of Laguna Beach. With small plates and an emphasis on sharing, K'ya Bistro Bar offers a diverse menu with flavors from the Mediterranean and a local bistro appeal. This bustling bistro is a stone's throw from the beach and reflects a lively San Francisco-esque atmosphere. Guests can enjoy a private table, or have a drink by the fireplace before or after dinner in the comfortable lobby lounge featuring live entertainment.
