Dining

Montecito Cafe - One of the village's favorite destinations for lunches and extended-family dinners, this restaurant features California Nouveau cuisine. Menu specials change frequently, but popular everyday offerings include light appetizers such as salmon on goat-cheese pancakes, and entrées such as seafood pasta, New York pepper steak, and spicy, chili-grilled chicken breast. The wine list includes regional varietals by the bottle and glass. Orders may also be placed as room service, or for bar- or pool-side dining.

Cafe Bar - Across the hotel's main drive, the sunlight-filled bar is also a Montecito hot spot, especially in the early evening hours. Although it stays open later than the café, food service stops when the kitchen closes.
