“nice romantic evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

we have been going to Larrupin for years. It is a nice close to home getaway. The food is always yummy and they have a good wine selection. The last time we were there on a Friday they had live music that truly set the mood without preventing conversation.

“YUM”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

It's not "LA food with LA prices". The Larrupin is GREAT food at a great price! Portions are plenty big, the food is well presented and very tasty. Great service! People talk about the funky furniture and setting but frankly I never noticed. It's great food - stop looking and start eating!

“Truly wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

Hard to believe this place exists in such a remote place. Trinidad is a spectacular place to visit in its own, but that is another review. Larrupin is a couple miles north of town on the old stagecoach road. No ocean view, and not much to get excited about from outside. But once inside, you are whisked away to a different place altogether, exotic and funky at the same time. Very interesting, but nicely limited menu. Same with the wine list, that has some very unusual Northern California selections. There were three of us. One had the pork loin, one the chicken in a pouch, and I had the steelhead, which was simply magnificent. Very interesting vegetables and green salad accompanied each entree. We shared something called a creme couer, or something like that, for dessert. Very unusual, but tasty. Service was grand. You must go if you are in the area.

“2 meals at Larrupin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

We went recently to Trinidad for our anniversary getaway. Had reservations at Larrupin for the first night, mostly from a recommendation from friends and the fact that they provided music on Sunday nights. From the outside it's not remarkable, but inside the decorations, though eclectic, are beautiful. Cannot say enough about the food. It was beyond wonderful. So much that we went back a second night . Would have liked to see a little more seafood on the menu, but what we had was excellent. Would go back in a heartbeat, and will encourage others to search out this restaurant a little off the beaten path. Thanks Larrupin! (and it was).

“In 11 years we have never had negative feedback”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

We own the Sea Cliff Motel and refer guests there frequently and in over 11 years we have never had negative feedback from guests we referred there. My wife and myself have no business arrangement nor any inducements of any kind to refer guests here, we do it because we believe it may be the best restaurant in the county.
