We found this restaurant on Yelp on our way home to Santa Barbara from Los Angeles. It's in an unlikely location (a little strip mall) but the food was delicious and the service very good. I plan to return on a future trip.

I should have followed the advice in previous reviews and ordered the mussels but I ordered the ceviche which was too lemony for my taste. The crispy corn served with it was quite tasty.

Summary: Bonanos is located in a nondescript small strip mall near Ventura College. That shouldn't detract you from trying something different and enjoying the authentic Peruvian cuisine. Service is good, prices are reasonable, and the menu offers some uniquely different selections. Wanting to broaden their horizons, I ate there with my teenage son and his friend. We were served by...

I know this is Trip Advisor, but whether you're a visitor to Ventura or live here, this place is well worth it. It's not downtown or at the beach , but in an unassuming strip mall in the middle of town (CVS Pharmacy is the anchor). I don't know how they do their rotisserie chicken but it is heavenly and...
