Humuhumu’s description

This modern tiki bar and restaurant opened in 2016, but it's carrying on a strong tiki tradition in Laguna Beach. It occupies the same site as local tiki landmark Royal Hawaiian

Recent speaks with the bar hint at better bar tending to come. They really are trying to get a Tiki rep started, and doing quite well. Beware!! Summer Parking Will Be An Issue!! Valet or park and walk.

I live in the area and went to the Royal Hawaiian for dinner and a few drinks. The ambiance is more Hawaiian but for South Orange County its "tiki" enough to surly get your tiki fix. The staff was great and the manager Chris was truly a professional in restaurant management. The food menu has a little something for everyone and the drink menu has a few standard tiki drinks but mostly they have their own concotions. I am kind of a Mai Tai snob so let me just say you should ask for their "Classic Mai Tai" that is not on the menu as opposed to their Royal Mai Tai. Overall a good time for sure!!

I really like the cocktails. VERY GOOD classic mai tai. I wish there wasn't sports on the televisions. (I wish there weren't any televisions). Pupus were fine, maybe a little small. Friendly staff but they're not familiar with the tiki scene. I'm not into reggae music but it fits with the surfer vibe in the surrounding area. I would come back for another mai tai. :)
