Restaurants

Santa Barbara has some of the best weather year-round, which makes for bountiful harvests in our fields and vineyards. Our restaurant’s creative chefs are sourcing from daily farmers markets and fish markets in the Santa Barbara Harbor to create incredible dishes that will make for an unforgettable dining experience. And if you’re wondering what wine or beer to pair with your meal, just ask your server – likely a trained sommelier or cicerone.

With more than 450 different Santa Barbara restaurants to choose from, you’ll find the perfect spot to enjoy, from five-star dining to mom-and-pop cafés to the burger joint voted Best Tasting in the United States. Treat yourself to a farm-to-table dinner you won’t soon forget. And seafood lovers will delight in tasting the catch of the day, fresh from our own waters off the Channel Islands.
