    I have been wanting to go here for a while and was it worth the wait! We came to celebrate two friends bdays and they really made it special for us. They greeted us with a delicious Chicken and Rice soup with green lentils that had so much flavor it was a real treat! 3 of the 4 of us had cocktails and they were as tasty as they were beautiful! We shared some small plates including 2 Peruvian Rolls (like Sushi but with a Peruvian flair) and they were both delicious! Rory was our server and we all agreed 10 out of 10 stars for service. If you are contemplating a visit to Mistura, I highly recommend you go!

    Bear & the Wren in San Luis Obispo was a pleasant surprise. The pizza with hot honey was quite enjoyable, offering a unique flavor combination. Our server knew their way around the wine list, providing helpful recommendations. The management was friendly, contributing to a relaxed dining atmosphere. Overall, a solid choice for a casual night out with decent food and service.

    One of my top dining experiences of my entire year! From the low-lit atmosphere, to the incredible menu, and perfect recommendations from our kind server. I will drive hours just to dine here again!

Discover San Luis Obispo

San Luis Obispo's city council has maintained a ban on drive-throughs for any restaurant within city limits since 1982. This helps to make the restaurant scene one that prizes fresh ingredients, classic cooking styles, and a variety of cuisines. The vegetarian and vegan restaurants are among the most popular, making the most of the area's high value for fresh produce. Most of the rest of the restaurants, which feature farm-to-table ingredients, fresh seafood, and a host of international flavors, also offer several vegetarian options. Delis and Mediterranean restaurants also feature the freshness of San Luis Obispo in unique and delicious ways.
