I liked Luna Red. Went there on a recommendation and it was very populated in a Sat evening. The usher and waiter were excellent and I sat out in the garden with a heater on. Got a good Malbec by the glass and tapas. The menu is limited in choices and few vegetarian choices but the dishes were quite good.... More

First and foremost. The food. Paella with sausage and chicken thigh was something Father Junipero Serra would smile upon from his spot at the mission next door😊 Also, had heirloom tomato salad which was divine with a generous portion of sublime ricotta The gambas with roasted garlic cloves were classic tapa goodness. I know you've had this app before, but... More

Visiting SLO with our pup. Great tapas, different Latin inspired menu with good ambiance next to the SLO mission. Excellent service and friendly atmosphere. Our Golden was very welcomed!

This place has a good atmosphere, good service by friendly staff with the food quality pretty darn good (we had a seafood paella). If i had to say anything negative it would probably be that food & drink prices are fairly expensive but that seems to be the way in most places we have been to in California.
