Description: Nourish your appetite with Luna Red’s tantalizing mix of tapas, European staples and global creations. From house-cured duck prosciutto and local goat cheese, to tapas that include such gems as stuffed piquillo peppers or arancini balls, served with local mushrooms, leeks and a tomato jam— and those are just the starter plates. For an entrée, you’ll have a hard time deciding—we offer dishes from around the world such as Portuguese seafood stew with housemade chorizo or Korean style short ribs with housemade kimchee. We have something for every discerning palate. Each selection combines a perfect balance of flavors and represents a kaleidoscope of cuisines. Warm yourself. Delight in luna red.

Wonderful food and a great environment across from the mission and on the creek. A Spanish twist and worth the stop if in SLO.

We had a selection of cold and hot tapas and someone in the kitchen has a vivid imagination, mixing flavours and textures in unusual combinations that worked. We finished with Mexican donuts and a spicy hot chocolate.

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!!!

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.
