Perfect for a large group, we shared many dishes and enjoyed every one. Reservations available, and lovely outdoor seating.

Great atmosphere and a terrific owner who is often there! Good food, we sat outside but I have been inside before - I prefer the outside cause I love the European feeling with the creek side not so far away.

Great spot in downtown SLO. Food was amazing along with the atmosphere. Outdoor seating is wonderful and the outdoor bar area has a cozy fire pit. Very romantic evening spot. Enjoy!!!

This was our first time experiencing tapas dining in the US (we had tapas once before in Barcelona), and we were not disappointed! We were seated in the comfortable outdoor patio area with the 4 of us and 2 dogs, and were treated to an assortment of tapas plates and a bottle of Pinot Grigio. We ordered the calamari, Jidori...

My family and I are visiting from Canada for 2 weeks. We are halfway through our vacation and this was the best food we've had yet!! Fresh, and bursting with flavour! We will go back again before our vacation is over! :) We highly recommend this place.

My husband, our dogs, and I took a day trip to SLO. We researched ahead of time an eating venue that had Gluten free optiona and was dog friendly. Luna Red fit the bill. The food was good, server were friendly, and they were super great to our girls, even bringing a dog water dish to our patio table. We... More

I enjoyed the raw oysters, served with two different dipping sauces, the bacon wrapped dates, and a wonderful fresh salad as my final dish. I also had a half glass of the Venato Pinot Grigio, the featured wine. I appreciated having the... More

We loved the menu at this friendly tapa restaurant and the tastes delivered. The heirloom tomato salad with pistachio vinaigrette, burrata cheese and purslane made the most of in season ingredients. It was delightful as was the grilled heart of romaine with blue cheese and a balsamic reduction. The flavors were so well balanced. We also really enjoyed the flatbread... More

My husband and I went here for lunch after doing some wine tasting. We got there around lunch time and had to wait 10 minutes for a table. There were plenty of tables available on the patio, but it seemed that service was a bit slow. I do want to note that one of the staff came by and made... More
