Santa Barbara Restaurants

One of the ancillary benefits of vacation areas is the great food available. Santa Barbara restaurants are customer service oriented and do their best to stand out with quality food and fresh themes. It doesn’t matter the occasion, you’re sure to find the right food. This guide by Paradise Retreats will brief you on the best place to get your fill of calories while you vacation in the Santa Barbara area.

Quality Quick Eats

A quick option for a bite is Mony’s Mexican Food, a well-received Mexican restaurant favored over many of its peers. Authentic and hole-in-the-wall are traits that make this spot special. Try out the carnitas tacos for a delicious munchable meal, and be sure to try the salsa bar which is especially well done with some unique mixtures.

Not in the mood for Mexican? Well how about Pickles & Swiss, a sandwich shop with fresh ingredients. In addition to their great classics, like Norm’s Cold Cut, are items more irregular but just as good, like the Crispy Chicken West. Also of note, the tomato soup is out-of-this-world tasty!

Unparalleled Class

High caliber food and drink is what makes Wine Cask stand out. It’s the perfect place for a celebration dinner or when you just want one of the best experiences around. Customers love this place for its food, service, and quality wine. It’s a high-end restaurant, a bit on the pricier side, so if you’re trying to spend less just come here for wine and dessert. Their cobblers and cocktails are raved about, providing several items to nurse over an intimate meal.
