Delicious tapas. Don't miss the bacon wrapped dates. We ended up getting three orders of them for two of us! Couldn't stop eating them! Creative choices. Very casual atmosphere.

The bar at this restaurant is attractive and inviting. We often go in around 5 and have cocktails and tapas. The small plates are satisfying and it provides an opportunity to interact with other guests. The food is really very good

Loved this restaurant and their staff was excellent. Had an amazing chicken salad with the best dressing (lime) I have ever had in a restaurant. They have a great selection of beer (we had a free tasting of 5 of their beers), wine and cocktails.

We shared olives, calamari, and stuffed piquillo peppers and then each had the chicken and lamb mezze, respectively. A great dinner.

Stopped here after cycling from Ventura. Great lunch; chicken in pitta was delicious, bread was fresh, chicken tender and the side salad was very tasty. Nice little spot to sit outside, staff were efficient and friendly.

Had lunch here last week and wasn't disappointed. Two of the staff at the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa recommended this place. The menu was a Mediterranean fusion and everything was delicious. The service was friendly and fast, and the prices were very reasonable. I...More
