Enjoyed a good dinner here as I was heading back down to LA. They even offered my furry little guy a bone. So sweet! I love places that are so laid back and friendly! Would... More

Came here after the Lavender Festival for a lavender margarita....it was excellent. Service was very good, everyone was friendly, the salsa and tri tip tacos were very good and the atmosphere of the restaurant was a perfect way to relax. The outdoor patio was perfect. Would definitely return.

It was delicious, not too spicy, and the accompanying rice and refried beans were delicious. The cheese enchilada was cheesy and very tasty. Our server... More

I would highly recommend this spot if you're looking for an outdoor patio place centrally located in Ojai. We were here for appetizers and margaritas before meeting up with a friend's party. The staff were all really attentive and cordial. Their margarita list is solid and the salsa is excellent.
