If I had to choose a favorite restaurant for just about any occasion in Santa Barbara, ZAYTOON would be it. Zaytoon is a Lebanese restaurant located just off the beaten path downtown. I fancy it a bit more of a hidden garden oasis, with the air of romance and celebratory vibes. Zaytoon is a gem, a local favorite and is so much more than beautiful ambiance.
Everything on the menu I’ve experienced is robust in flavor and is absolutely delicious. The cocktails are a unique balance of simple ingredients with complex flavors that will wow your taste buds. One of my personal favorite drinks is the Urban Legend, if you are a coconut lover–you have to try it!
The Zaytoon menu– you honestly cannot go wrong. I struggle with choosing an entree because everything is so enjoyable. We always start with the hummus appetizer but have been trying to branch out. The salmon entree is one of my all time favorites–I crave it on a day-to-day basis. Zaytoon = yum-city!
Want to find a new romantic date spot? Have friends/family coming into town? Craving some amazing middle eastern fare? Make a reservation & head on over to Zaytoon! See you there, Santa Barbara!
