Since I wrote that horrible review of Jungle George a short time ago, I thought I would balance it with an awesome review of Paradise Cafe in Santa Barbara.
Paradise Cafe is located in downtown Santa Barbara, but off of the main street. It is a big restaurant with a huge bar area, outdoor seating and indoor seating. The bar area is it's own room so if you aren't in there, you don't have to listen to it.
Their menu is decent-sized with a good variety of items. I ordered a turkey burger, as seems to be my usual lately. When I asked the waiter what came on it, he was able to tell me AND get me the mayonnaise that I wanted substituted. Such a nice change :)
There was tons of staff around, checking on us and refilling our drinks (and we EACH received one).
If you're looking for a nice, reasonably-priced restaurant in Santa Barbara, look no further than Paradise Cafe.
