The Royal Hawaiian: "Come for the drinks!" Laguna Beach Restaurant Tip by brewjohnson

Laguna Beach Restaurants: 62 reviews and 62 photos

A Laguna Beach legend. You don't come to the Royal Hawaiian for the food. You come for the kitschy Polynesian decor and the drinks. In particular, the Lapu Lapu. The Lapu Lapu is a Mai Tai-type concoction served in a fish-bowl glass. Once you've had one, you can stomach the food. If you're foolhardy enough to have 2, you'll likely be found the next morning face down in the sand. You'll be lucky if you have your trousers on.

Favorite Dish: Head straight to the bar and grab a Lapu Lapu.

Address: 331 N. Coast Highway, Laguna Beach, CA 92651
Price Comparison: less expensive than average
Directions: North Laguna, about 5 blocks North of Main Beach. Look for two large Tiki heads on the ocean side of the road.
