We had a wonderful meal last Friday at the Wine Cottage Bistro in Orcutt. The restaurant is very cute inside, and the noise level is busy but tolerable. There were many good sounding salads and appetizers on the menu, but the entrees came with small salads so we didn’t try anything extra. I had the juniper berry duck breast on sundried tomato polenta with chard and a yummy sauce. My husband had the pork tenderloin with sweet potato puree, chard and another great sauce. The food was nicely presented. The portions weren’t huge, but there was plenty. We had room for dessert and saw many good looking ones being served around us. I had the caramel apple tart and he had the flourless chocolate cake. Both were very nice. We shared a half bottle of wine and the total without tax and tip came to $80. Very reasonable for that nice meal. There were many other good looking items on the menu and we look forward to going back and trying more. The wait staff was also very good, friendly, and informative. There was a locals feeling to the place.
