Great place! We went here because we couldn't find a place that didn't have a 2 hour reservation at sunset. This place was such a hidden jem! Great food and view and amazing service! I couldn't believe there wasn't more people there! A little hidden which makes it great for conversation and dates. Will come back again!

The food here is very good, not quite excellent. There are excellent vegetarian and nonvegetarian options. The falafel really good. The wine list is lacking. The service is rushed and impersonal. The restrooms were not clean and were shared with other establishments. It is not a memorable place to dine but there wasn’t one aspect of the actual we could find fault with.

The best thing that can be said about this place is that it is located in Laguna Beach. If it wasn't for the location, it wouldn't exist. Not going back.

Great experience! Extensive menu, something for everyone and all of it looked very good. As locals, we'll definitely be back more often and are sad we put off visiting GG's so long. Truly was our loss as it's a gem of Laguna. Enjoy!

The best Turkish coffee we had for a while and nicely served! Both dishes (spinach salad and swordfish skewers) were delicious. The owners stopped by our table few times to make sure everything is OK. Will be back for sure and will definitely recommend this place to family and friends.

I picked this restaurant by looking through tripadvior reviews. We love Mediterranean food, so it looked like a good choice. We were a little disappointed. I had the lamb skewers, and I honestly could not taste the meat. No flavor. When does that ever happen with lamb? They served it with a tsasiki type sauce which if you didn't dip in, you got no flavor. My husband had chicken Marsala, which was good. My son had the cioppino, which he was happy with. We sat outside, and the traffic was close by, but it wasn't too loud. Service was good. We did share the Mezze appetizer which was very good. I'd go back for a drink and just that.

We enjoyed our meals. I had the seafood pasta and my wife had the chicken kabob and grape leaves. We sat outside where the tables are close together but worth it for the people watching. We have been here several times and have a good meal every time.

It was a lovely day and we were dining al fresco in beautiful Laguna Beach. That was the best part of lunch. The food was adequate. Eggplant and falafel appetisers were unremarkable. Gyro plate meat was dried out. Service was competent but not especially inspiring.

We loved the food, outdoor dining and service. It's in busy Laguna Beach, and the underground parking was wonderful. Didn't have to search for a parking space. Outdoor seating was protected from breeze and had heat lamps, so it was perfect even when cool. Mediterranean food was delicious and well priced. We'll definitely be back, and highly recommend it.

The food was delicious. Great selection of gluten free dishes. The patio is a bit cramped and the noise from PCH is uncomfortable. But, that is the nature of beach dining so if you like good food, you put up with the noise. The pet-friendly nature of the patio seating is a big plus.

We walked in for our dinner reservation and were greeted by a lovely trio of musicians playing standards from the 30s on up. What fun. The food was delicious, the cocktails, wine and spirits were flowing. I can recommend the pomegranate martini.
Great crowd! A memorable night.

Yummy Mediterranean food, and lovely ambience despite a cool and very rainy night. We enjoyed the mixed appetizer plate, calamari, several types of kebab meals, and the flavorful and very rich Turkish pudding (share!). Sunday evening music provided by Steve and Beth Fitchet Wood was friendly and so much fun!

This place is quite small, but does have good food to serve, and that is the reason why we had driven 40 miles on a Friday evening. The service is always great, and I being a vegetarian had ordered their lentil salad which I found was delicious BUT filled with more arugula than the lentils and garbanzo, that I would have enjoyed more with some arugula. My husband and the friends we had gone with had ordered other dishes which they relished very much.
Overall, we had a great experience.
