Our Favorite Santa Barbara Restaurants


Whether you’re in the market for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, or happy hour, Boathouse and Hendry’s Beach is hard to beat. With an extensive menu and a great atmosphere, this is one place that should be on your list of must-visit restaurants.

Lama Dog

Although not technically a restaurant, Lama Dog still should not be missed. With “20 revolving craft beers on tap [and] 4 varieties of wine on tap,” when you’re in Santa Barbara, you’ll need a good drink. This is the place to stop in for one.

Every city needs at least one good sushi restaurant. We’re fortunate to have several, but among our favorites is Arigato. No matter what type of tastes you have or what you’re craving, when you want the best of the best, Arigato is hard to beat.

Los Agaves

Boasting “the bold flavors of Mexico” and “an authentic dining experience [with] high-quality ingredients,” Los Agaves has two locations in Santa Barbara to enjoy while you’re out exploring what our city has to offer. Their menu contains several wonderful options, and we think you’ll be thrilled with whatever you order at Los Agaves.

Ca’ Dario

With different menus for each Ca’ Dario across Santa Barbara, you can enjoy anything from pasta bowls to pizza to paninis. As their website notes, they have one name and five great locations. Whichever one you end up visiting, you’re sure to want to try the others to enjoy more great foods.
