So, like, Locanda is apparently a restaurant. I didn't realize that until I crossed the threshold. Food & Wine listed it as a "must" on Valencia for its cocktails and bar snacks, so naturally I made a mental note to head straight there and actually arrived about two years later.

We were enjoying lunch at Lark Creek Steak recently with a cowboy and a Rastafarian, and while you wouldn't think that these two would get along so swell, there we were, having the best time.

This place has become one of my favorite hangouts. The staff are friendly and the food is great! Come during happy hour (3-6)and get a glass of Cabarnet Chavignon for $3. Along with the wine I also ordered their homestyle mac & cheese and buffalo wings...delicious!The best part is that I only paid about $13 for the whole meal. This place is definitely worth checking out!Read Full Review
Probably one of the top places to take somebody thats visiting from out of town. Its on the beach (Cliff), classy, great views, foods good, and my favorite part is that it's connected to the Lands End (scenic mile 49) hiking trail providing a perfect (short) hike after a meal.Read Full Review
