I'm in the inital planning stages of an anniversary trip to Santa Barbara in December. We have never been to this area. Any suggestions on nice places for dinner? Bouchon? Wine Cask? Olio e Limone? Also, any great places for a Mexican lunch and a a few great seafood suggestions.
Brophy Brothers good? Any opinions on the Inn at the Spanish Gardens for lodging? It's received rave reviews on the Tripadvisor board. Also considering El Encanto, I've heard the views are beautiful from their dining area. Is it really as out-dated as everyone is saying? All opinions welcomed! TIA!! ***kim***
