I spend a fair amount of time visiting Santa Cruz. Given the local farms, wineries, and culture I'm always surprised by how *bad* the restaurants are.
Are there any great ones? I'm not after a view as those are all over Santa Cruz but looking for really good food. Not necessarily fancy or any cuisine type, but "wow, I want to write a review of this place" kind of places.
Head to La Posta. Great restaurant with the freshest ingredients.
