Camarillo, or cities adjacent, restaurants

I'm going up to Camarillo on Saturday for the day and night.

Is there any restaurant worth going to in Camo, Oxnard or Thousand Oaks or should I plan on cooking? I'm staying at a house, so cooking is an option.

I'm open to any cuisine.

Places I've eaten in Camarillo: Eggs N' Things, Juanita's, and Coco's.
I did a search and saw a mention of Sheila's Wine Bar.

  1. If you have the time, drive up to Ventura (only another 10 minutes past Oxnard), get off the freeway at California St., turn right at the end of the ramp, go a few blocks to Main, turn left, and go to Maria Bonita -- which will be on your left, a block before the mission on your right. I have had nothing but terrific food at Maria Bonita, which serves riffs on food from various regions of Mexico at very reasonable prices.

    1. Go to MAsa Sushi! Yummy, and does the old fashioned "press box" sushi!

        I forgot about Masa.

        I hit a wall with sushi about 6 months ago. I haven't had any desire to eat it since then. I've saved a lot of money because of this newfound indifference.

        Thanks Oz for the Maria Bonita recommendation. I'll try to get there.

      2. Sapphire Grill is opening this week to much anticipation!

        1. Also, if you're willing to drive to Ventura, there's Tootie's on Palm St. downtown. A GREAT restaurant IMO. Also, there's the Golden Egg on Main in midtown Ventura for a killer breakfast.

            I googled Tootie's and couldn't come up with anything.
            What kind of restaurant is it?

              Basic Cal-French. Nice small plates selection. Focus on local ingredients...nice wine selection as well for the size.

                It's spelled Tutti's - that might help. :)

            2. Not much up there, but at Fisherman's Wharf at the Channel Islands harbor in Oxnard, there is a seafood place named HC or H&C Seafood that serves up fresh grilled/steamed seafood at fabulous prices. It's like a Neptunes Net, but not as commercialized, so it's alot cheaper. I think lobster was 14 bucks a pound a few months back. By favortie is the broiled prawns.
