An Old Favorite!

We have been loving -- and I do mean LOVING -- this restaurant since we discovered it on our honeymoon in 1990.

We go for the small plates. The owner comes out to talk with you, the waitress, Lupe, is so much fun. Everything they serve is mouth watering.

We have dined and stayed at St Orres numerous times over the years and they continue to knock it out of the park. Warm, friendly staff that are well trained and attentive. Food is amazing and the attention to details and presentation is obvious. A feast for the eyes as well as the tummy! We had the 4 course fixed... More

Despite being the only people in the entire restaurant when we walked in, after an hour an a half we had received only 3 of the 6 small dishes we had ordered, so we told them to forget it, paid the bill and left hungry and puzzled. No one in the restaurant ever said a word of explanation, apology, interest... More

This place was so flippin cool. We got upgraded to a larger cabin and it was wonderful. I'd love to back with another couple and share the cabin and stay another day and cook and enjoy the ocean more.

What a fabulous find! Our friends from The Sea Ranch had dined here previously, so we were excited to try it, too. We were not disappointed! They have an extensive wine list and an eclectic menu. Dinner -- including soup and salad courses -- are either $45 or $50. You get your money's worth! The presentation is lovely and the... More

We had looked online and and saw some appetizers that sounded really good. My girlfriend and I were on our way back to our hotel down the road about 30 minutes to watch sunset and called in order and was told it would be ready in 15 minutes. It took us 5 minutes to get there. The guy working the... More

There are "go to" restaurants that are trendy or new and then there are the longstanding shining stars of "always go to" with friends, family and visitors. St, Torres in Gualala , California on the redwood Coast is the where we go. Owner and creator Rosemary Campiformio creates cuisine from the seasonal bounty of local foods. Each course, plate, platter... More
