Award Winning dining in Santa Barbara.

Our restaurant is small, comfortable and personal. Adorning the soft green walls of Downey's dining room you will find beautiful plein-aire paintings of local scenes by Liz Downey. If you would like to enjoy a true Santa Barbara Dining Experience where you will not be rushed, but cared-for, we invite you to visit Downey's for dinner. To paraphrase more than one satisfied guest, you just may have "the very best meal of your life."
