Santa Barbara Restaurants

With century-old cattle ranches, and family farms and vineyards surrounding Santa Barbara, the city's cuisine thrives on local meat, seasonal veggies, and organic vintages. Spicy Latin fare and the daily catch are favored on local menus, and chefs delight in whipping up harvest meals with farmers market finds. But remember, while five-star culinary creations are served at a variety of posh spots downtown, off the beaten track eateries dish up pub grub, gourmet pizza, ethnic eats, and other affordable favorites.
