No matter what you’re craving, the Central Coast’s versatile line-up of restaurants has got it. Here you’ll find a huge selection of international cuisines, from the varied flavors of Asia to the dishes of Denmark at Solvang’s many Danish restaurants. Not only are the cuisines of the Central Coast diverse but so too are the dining experiences awaiting you. You can dress up for birthdays, anniversaries, and other event dinners at high-end restaurants where the coastal views pair perfectly with the gourmet cuisine. Or find down-home spots for Santa Maria-style barbecue or seafood brought in fresh from the docks. Creative young chefs work with locally grown organic ingredients at intimate bistros while classic hole-in-the-walls serve up some of the best burritos and tacos you’ll find anywhere. So there’s only one rule about dining on the Central Coast: Bring a healthy appetite. For information about a particular city, click on the Visitor Assistance links.
