Looking for good restuarant IN Topanga Canyon

Can anyone suggest a place in the Canyon, between Woodland Hills and the PCH?

Thank you,

  1. Froggy's has decent fish and a great patio overlooking the mountains, reasonably priced.
    Inn of the Seventh Ray is kind of pricey and the staff is hippy spacey, but the food is fine and they do have meat and fish too as well as lots of vegetarian offerings. Nice atmosphere, but heavy on the "romantic" shtick.

      I second the Inn. Good food, for dinner, lunch or weekend brunch.

        Third the Inn. A little silly (their menu is listed in order of "esoteric vibration", whatever that means), but they have good options for meat eaters, vegetarians, vegans, and raw food folks. The last time I was there wasn't as quite as good as the other time or two, but it was a valentines day dinner and it was pretty busy.

        Much nicer to go if the weather is nice.... I've had bad luck personally - it's always been cold or raining or something. Would love to do the streamside thing in the summer when it's light out.

    2. I think that froggy's is the best of them all. And I have tried them all.
      Rocco's is not too bad for pasta and pizza.
      Abeulita's has a decent hamburger.... and Pat's has decent b'fasts and hamburgers as well.

      1. abuelita's has pretty good tacos and salsa

        1. Abuelita's is pretty good. Rocco's is a good place too. Is Froggy's even open?

          Pat's is good for breakfast and lunch.

          Or else just go all the way to PCH and eat at Cholada Thai on the beach.

              we ar elooking for a place for dinner - thanks

          1. The places suggested -- Inn of the 7th Ray, Froggy's, Rocco's, Pat's, and Abuelita's -- are the only games in town. I don't think Pat's is open for dinner, but not sure. Abuelita's is OK at best, Inn is fine but a little too expensive (though VERY romantic, particularly on a nice spring or summer night). Rocco's is consistently good as long as you stick to pizza, salads, and one or two of the chicken dishes.
