Simply put, Santa Barbara is a haven for excellent restaurants (despite being the home to the first “Egg McMuffin” from McDonalds!) often combined with exceptional visual surroundings and the comforts that only a Mediterranean climate can bring.
The following restaurants are located in the Santa Barbara area. This is just a partial list. If you have a recommendation for a restaurant please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org One look on Yelp under Santa Barbara Restaurants would give you an idea of the diversity and numbers of restaurants located in Santa Barbara. Any prices listed below are for dinner only. Prices are subject to change without notice. We have eaten at a number of these restaurants, but not all. This page continues to be updated as we visit restaurants we have not yet eaten at, or revisit old standbys.
All Phone Numbers are in the 805 area code unless otherwise noted.
