The Bistro

Casual seaside cuisine for guests of all ages

Situated oceanside, The Bistro offers a casual and relaxed atmosphere to dine and enjoy sweeping views of the coastline. In 2015, The Bistro was named “Top 100 Best Al Fresco Dining Restaurants in America” by OpenTable. Its American cuisine can be enjoyed indoors or al fresco on a spacious stone terrace. Local produce and sustainable seafood highlight a seasonal menu of traditional bistro favorites.

The beautiful dining room incorporates hints of Santa Barbara’s beautiful panorama. Traditional elements such as chiseled ironwork, upholstered panels and Moorish archways help to create a fresh, modern aesthetic. Like California, the look represents a measure of balance and contrasts: Old World while modern, spacious while intimate and understated while luxurious.

The Bistro is open daily for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Reservations can be made at 805.571.3018, or make an Open Table Reservation.
