This place is beautifully designed. I love the decor. I had been recommended to try it from the manager at Le Reve Spa as a great go to for weekend cocktails with my girlfriends and I was very pleased with it over. We had a great time.

My husband and I visited here on our last night in Santa Barbara and I will never forget it, but not for the right reasons. It was very busy so we took this as a good recommendation but we were wrong. A very pushy waiter gave below average service, no water long waits and constantly telling us his name. After... More

Hi Carole, I apologize for your experience at Casa Blanca. The bathroom incident is an unfortunate event that we did not have complete control over, but I can assure you we did not leave the sign and not have intentions of coming back to clean the mess up. I spoke with the management at the restaurant about this event and... More

We Had dinner there on a Monday and it was free margarita day with a combo witch was nice. It was a small margarita but it tasted great. Not too strong or weak. Food was very close to Mexican authentic. Service was ok a little slow it seemed they were low on staff maybe because it was a Monday. Overall... More

I liked this place, good parking and free for guests. We just had snacks in the early evening but it was good, ate outside. The service was good and the staff friendly. We enjoyed it. Nice atmosphere. I always wish I had more time to discover all that Santa Barbara has to offer.

There's a very fun Mexican atmosphere in this restaurant! The outside is really nice and well decorated. The waiters take care of you and they serve very good Mexican chips for appetizer! We ordered very tasty fajitas and we ate a lot more than we expected considering the price! They give big portions so you really have to be hungry... More

Popped in on way to beach. Reasonably priced no nonsense place. Staff really friendly. Service well paced. Patio gave sense of tranquility even though just off Sate Street. Recommended - especially the lunch special Shrimp Diabla ( I think) which was spicy heaven. Little girl loved the children's beef taco too.

Food is outstanding. Great Mexican food spot, a lil pricey, but its a nicer place so it is expected. Service was so-so, but the excellent food and margaritas made up for it!

Today was Father's Day and the World Cup so the chances of good service and good food seemed like the impossible dream. To our amazement they were well staffed, the margarita was good and the fish tacos and shrimp fajitas were good. Their salsa is exceptional which is rare for us since we make our own. Chips are freshly made... More

Visited on no particular recommendation, place was very busy. Despite this, service was quick, cocktails were good and food was served reasonably quickly and was very good. Free nachos and dip to start. Would definitely recommend.
