California dreamin’

a fusion of sunshine and seasonal flavours

Crab cakes

Freshly-caught local stone crabs are a menu staple in the Santa Barbara region and in cake format, are a popular finger food, accompanied by a spicy Asian remoulade and crispy salad. It’s a tasty protein-rich snack, California style.

Flowered tuna

Anyone who has visited the American Riviera will have fallen in love – with the sea, the mountains and of course, the Pacific coastline’s irresistible culinary specialties. How about tuna with garden vegetables, flowers and orange relish for love at first sight, or rather, bite?

Beef carpaccio formaggi

The cows of Santa Rita Hills are famed for producing outstanding organic beef. Our version of the classic carpaccio combines the multicultural influences of Californian cuisine with Mediterranean charm, featuring cow, goat and sheep cheese, tomatoes and olive tapenade.

Label Rouge salmon

The Sunshine State’s Farmers Markets are legendary for their wonderful varieties of freshly-harvested vegetables. We combine a colourful bouquet of baby veg in refreshing lemon vinaigrette to complement glazed salmon, cooked to perfection at 80 degrees in olive oil.

Lemon guinea fowl

You may be familiar with the sweet lemons of the Italian Amalfi coast, but did you know California remains ahead of Italy on the list of top 10 citrus-growing countries globally? It’s therefore only logical that our version of ‘lemon chicken’ has a zesty Californian twist.

Oven-roasted rack of lamb

In the foodie world, California is synonymous with passionate farmers who are committed to their animals’ well-being in order to sustainably and naturally produce the best quality meat possible. We crust our pink-baked lamb with fresh herbs and nestle it amongst flavourful bush beans.

Vegan lemon & avocado cheesecake

Every October, Carpinteria’s Avocado Festival attracts tens of thousands of foodies. They flock to the ocean-side city to sample every avocado creation imaginable, from guacamole and avocado beer to deliciously sweet desserts such as a vegan cheesecake with lemon and avocado curd.

Why you'll love it!

Sunday brunch

Sunday Brunch at AYU is the very best of both worlds. Better than breakfast - giving you a weekend lie in and more leisurely than lunch and of course arguably the most luxurious meal of the week!

Chefs interaction

Forget about the formalities as our skilled chefs go that extra mile to make your dining experience a personal one as they whip up your favourite dish right in front of you.

Wine & cheese cellar

In a pleasant surrounding, enjoy some of the finest wines paired with cheese from the same region and discover a whole new dining experience at our walk-in Wine & Cheese cellar.
