Loquita showcases the flavors and traditional cooking methods of Spain with hot and cold tapas, wood-fired seafood, grilled meats and three types of paella.
A separate pintxos bar named Poquita serves small snacks, charcuterie and cheeses.
The wine list is comprised almost entirely of Spanish wines with a few exceptional local wines that pair well with the cuisine.
A full cocktail program features a selection of Spanish vermouths, farmers’ market sangria, hand-crafted cocktails and the customary offerings of gin-and-tonics.
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.
Whether you want to dine in the lively indoor dining room or around a cozy fireplace on the romantic patio, Loquita is the perfect spot to gather while in the Waterfront district of downtown Santa Barbara.
