Cool dinner in south OC

eglbc Jun 3, 2007 01:06 PM

Im meeting my dad in the south OC area for dinner. Im looking for somthing mid-price range like 15-25$ entrees(sp?). Somthing between dana point and laguna would be fine.

open to most nationalities, just no generic chain type joints.

    I recommend Sapphire in Laguna Beach. Great patio with ocean view. Global cuisine. My wife and I have had three great experiences there.

      The Beach House might be fun with your dad. They have locations in Laguna Beach and Dana Point.

        Definite 2nd for Sapphire - it's really good.

        Also, Eva's Caribbean
        Upstairs at Mozambique
        230 Forest (may be a little over $$)
        Sun Dried Tomato Cafe

              It's great, but the main Dining Room will be more expensive.

              Their Shabeen more casual dining upstairs does not take resvs...

              Here's a link so you can decide if the prices will work or not:

                How about Hush. I have not been in a while, but I have many excellent meals there. If you go, I highly recommend the patio as the interior is very loud.
