Big thanks to the servers who helped us turn a three-person lunch into an 8-person event. Great service. Nice atmosphere. The place is a little hard to find because it's in the arcade and signage isn't on the street. Disappointed that there was way too much salad dressing on my salad. For the cost, the salads overall weren't that great.

Off the tourist route--thankfully. We love this locals, casual restaurant. The small staff is knowledgeable and knows their customers. The chef is the owner and he is becoming part of the community, The food is very good--small plates fun to share. The fish special is always fresh and nicely sized and priced. Would not hesitate to recommend.

The restaurant variests local beers on tap. Last night we shared a plate of local mussels cooked in a savory broth followed by light plates of polenta and meatballs and a potpourri of... More

Small restaurant tucked back in an arcade, we were looking for it in the rain. The food was excellent, generous portions, service was prompt. I recommend the arugula fig salad, I had to take half with me and it was great the next day!

A bit of serendipity that we found this lovely place! The atmosphere and location really help make it, and we were able to eat outside. We split an amazing (really amazing) burger, and one of their fabulous salads. A hidden little gem, that as travelers, so glad we found! Highly recommend!

First night ever in Santa Barbara, we headed over to the busy State Street area, but then just off the main drag, in a beautiful outdoor shopping promenade, was this wonderful little restaurant with fantastic local cuisine. Great waiter, excellent wine and beer choices, and a fantastic meal set a great tone for our weekend visit to Santa Barbara!

We took my husband's parents here for dinner and it was fantastic--the service, the food, the drinks, and the atmosphere. I had the clam chowder, which claims to be New England style. I lived in MA for a few years and it didn't taste like any of the chowder I had there, but it was still very good. We also... More

Went here for a light lunch and had a turkey panini. Generous portion of very tasty turkey in a crisp panini with salad, pickles and chips. Sounds very ordinary but was really flavourful and was just right for a sensible lunchtime snack at a very reasonable price.
