“Farm to Table Ventura County Restaurant Situated inside Herzog Wine Cellars, Tierra Sur contin­ues to receive national recognition as one of the finest restaurants in Southern California. Head Chef Gabriel Garcia and his team bring bold and exciting ideas to life–while using only seasonal ingredients, sourced fresh from local farm­ers. Year over year, Tierra Sur has received the highest ZAGAT ratings in Ventura County, and in the 2014 ZAGAT – the highest ratings in a 40 mile radius! Modern and inspired New American fare, and the ambiance of dining inside of the area’s largest winery delight guests of this truly one of a kind, farm to table concept. Being located in the center of the region’s largest winery has its benefits; guests may order from a special ‘Wine Tasters Menu’ and enjoy a three course prix fixe selection, each paired with Herzog Special Reserve award-winning wines. Whether stopping on the way to Santa Barbara, or traveling to Ventura County – Tierra Sur offers exceptional dining and a charming stop along the way. ”
