We're thinking of eating at the El Encanto resaurant. It appears to be pricy. ( For that much we could eat 3 or 4 times at one of the beach-front crab shacks. ) Is it worth the price? Thanks.
Not sure due to new ownership, the Orient Express collection, and the fact that they will be going into renovation, if not now, then soon. Why not try bouchon santa barbara. Excellent service and gourmet menu. See either my Santa Barbara restaurants page or the website for bouchon: www.bouchon.net
