If you're in the central coast you must check out Shoals Restaurant located in the Cliff House Inn.
This place is the hidden gem of Carpinteria (located between Ventura and Santa Barbara). Shoals Restaurant offers a great romantic atmosphere (over looking the ocean) with a reasonable price. My favorite plate there was the scallop appetizer (to die for). And don't forget to save some space for their homemade desserts (everything is way too good there). This place is a must!

The stuffed chicken breast was fantastic. The bean soup was also delicious. And our waitress was very nice.

Little restaurant in a little hotel on a little beach hamlet called Mussel Shoals. The food is acutally quite good (and I consider myself a foodie). On a pretty day it is hard to match. Dont go on a bad day, Its all about the view. Although I would still say dinner is worth it. They have a brunch too which is popular so make a reservation.

This is a great place for lunch on a sunny day -- don't do it on a foggy day. The food is excellent and the service professional.

I would not stay at the motel/hotel. It has a great location, nice swimming pool, but the rooms are very dated and need some serious work.
