VENTANA INN AND SPA - BIG SUR, CALIFORNIA
VENTANA INN AND SPA
BIG SUR, CA
My Dad and his wife really wanted us to stop at the Ventana Inn on the way down to Cambria. This was one of their favorite places to enjoy lunch and the beauty of Big Sur. As we drove up the road to the restaurant I was already sold. Just like the look and feel of the place. As you enter the restaurant there is a beautiful and tranquil wishing well in front. We tossed in a coin and made a wish. Mine had already came true when I looked at my wife and daughter. The staff greeted us with smiles as we entered. It was a little to cool to sit outside on the beautiful deck that overlooks the Pacific. Instead we were inside enjoying the warmth of a beautiful fireplace. I ordered the Chicken Enchiladas that were a family recipe for 30 years the menu said. They were fantastic. Great chicken, sauce and fresh guacamole. The beans and rice were first rate too. Really enjoyed this lunch. My wife enjoyed a Caesar Salad that was topped with large Anchovies. Delicious she stated. My daughter just wanted Sorbet. She is on a Sorbet kick and orders it everywhere we go. After lunch we ventured outside to the patio that was deserted due to the cool weather. We were treated to an amazing view.
