Great bar... Good food!

St. Orrs is my favorite bar and restaurant in Gualala. Ask Lupe to make you a favorite special cocktail!

Still open after all these years, I first ate here in the 1970's while visiting the area. It seems more casual now, we were accepted a bit windblown fresh from a beach. It still has a wonderful white table cloth but a bit rustic ambiance. Menu is fixed price, currently $45 a plate, but that includes soup & salad. If... More

Alice and I go to St. Orres for all our special occasions: her birthday, Valentine's Day, our anniversary, and I have lunch there every Friday at our weekly Rotary meeting. My favorite dinner is the duck with orange sauce, and Alice loves the quail.

As is our custom, when we make our annual pilgrimage to Gualala we always set aside one night for dinner at St. Orres which in our opinion provides the absolute best dinner dining experience on the North Coast. We visited here over the four day President's Holiday and had dinner on Sunday evening. The food's preparation and presentation is creative... More

On Valentine's Day I went to St.Orres to treat myself to tapas. It was a stunningly warm evening about an hour before sunset and I sat on the veranda. Lupe, the bartender was busy mashing basil for martinis....three glasses at the ready, as I passed the bar to the veranda. In a few moments she delivered the luscious green concoctions... More

My husband and I are part time Sea Ranch residents who neglected to make any plans for Christmas, due to last minute work chaos. We were lucky to drive by St. Orres and ask if the packed restaurant with set Christmas menu could accomodate us in the bar. We were made to feel very special and welcome, enjoying a lovely... More

Always wanted to go here and finally did to celebrate our birthdays. It was a thoroughly rewarding dining experience. Service was formal and friendly, and not at all stuffy. Old Fashion and Manhattan drinks were perfect. The presentation of the food was beautiful and the taste elegant. One of us had the pheasant with black chanterelles and truffles; the other... More

Four of us went for dinner. We purposely went early to have a drink at the bar due to the reviews. We were not disappointed! Lupe not only makes a great cocktail but she made the whole experience better. She's a hoot! The man that greeted us was very nice and welcoming. They bothe are 5's. In the dining room... More
