Cafe Fiore Restaurant and Martini Bar
Our favorite restaurant in Ventura! Café Fiore is located in the heart
of downtown Ventura across the
street from the Bella Maggiore Inn. The menu features many
mouth-watering dishes. My personal favorite is Agnolotti di Pollo e
Spinaci al Marsal (homemade ravioli stuffed with savory roasted
Good micro-brew, yes, but don't be fooled, the tasty original menu here
is just as good a reason why we love to come here, plus a fun, lively

While the Paradise Pantry is a fabulous wine bar with incredibly
delicious cheeses, cured meats, pickles, fruits and hand-made

most delicious gourmet sandwiches in town, or anywhere!

moderately priced, good service, nice environment. Reservations

The only upscale Mexican restaurant in Ventura and features the best Mole' dishes in town. The place
is small, cozy and decorated with wall art as colorful as the dishes
they serve. Depending on how spicy you like your food, you can choose
from a few different moles...
The Busy Bee Café
One of Ventura’s oldies but goodies, this diner has been a fixture on
Main Street since 1963. Already a favorite meeting place for downtown
merchants, the owners created mass appeal once they decided to embrace
a time when a good meal meant a burger, fries and a shake. They tossed
a juke box in...
One of our favorite lunch spots. Everything on the menu at Nature's
Grill is delicious, healthy and easy on the wallet, and the atmosphere
is casual and lively.

Andria’s Seafood Restaurant and Market
This local favorite isn’t fancy, but the tasty food is well worth the
line out the door (that’s me at the end of line, not minding the wait).
For twenty years Andria’s has been serving healthy portions of fresh,
quality seafood caught by local fisherman. Everything on the menu is
scrumptious. Personally, I can never resist a cup of clam chowder....
The Greek at the Harbor
the only Ventura restaurant where you can experience authentic Greek
food while professional belly-dancers entertain you. The restaurant is
located along the waterfront so outside dining is pleasurable and fun!
are highly recommended, especially on weekend evenings.
1583 Spinnaker Drive, Suite 101
steps away from the beach and features tasty genuine Italian
dishes at reasonable prices. The ambiance is cozy, very casual and
friendly. We like to enjoy the evening
ocean breeze and enjoy a glass a wine with our dinner in the heated

Spasso Cucina Italiana
