The South Coast and Catalina Island Restaurants



Sapphire Laguna

Sapphire Laguna Review

This Laguna Beach establishment is part gourmet pantry (a must-stop for your every picnic need) and part global dining adventure. Iranian-born chef Azmin Ghahreman takes guests on a journey through Europe and Asia with dishes like Hong Kong–style salt and pepper shrimp, Kurobuta pork shank, and Morrocan chicken tagine. Nearly a dozen beers from around the world and an extensive, fittingly eclectic wine list rounds out the experience. The dining room is intimate and earthy but infused with local style. Brunch is fast becoming a favorite with locals, as well—enjoy it on the patio in good weather.
