Spanish
Loquita serves authentic Spanish food including hot and cold tapas, wood-fired grilled seafood and meats, and seasonal paella. The Mediterranean climate and terroir of Santa Barbara County mirror that of Spain, making the translation of locally sourced produce, meats and seafood an ideal match. The wine list is comprised almost entirely of Spanish wines with exceptional local wines that pair well with the cuisine. Loquita's cocktail list showcases Spanish vermouths, farmers' market Sangria, hand-crafted cocktails and a rotating selection of Spain's king of cocktails, the Gin-and-Tonic. Down the hallway is Poquita, with displays of Manchego cheese, Manzanilla olives tapas, and pintxos (small bites). Loquita was awarded as one of USA Today's 10 Best New Restaurants for 2017 and delivers outstanding food, wine, cocktails and service.

Loquita, located on the corner of State and Yanonali, is truly a gateway to the Santa Barbara Funk Zone.
