As owners of a premier downtown Ventura restaurant we are aware of our responsibility to our community and our customers – both regulars and visitors. We live and work in Ventura. We seek out local neighbor farmers, ranchers, winemakers and cheese suppliers to provide us with the freshest, tastiest ingredients anywhere on the planet. We love our partners and are awed by their dedication and hard work in providing our world with the highest quality products. #VenturaStrong.

Paradise Pantry is a destination for everyone. "We strive to make eating great food and drinking fantastic wine a fun, inviting, and educational experience for all that wish to experience it. We are passionate supporters of local farms and businesses, culinary lovers, wine drinkers and quality-food snobs. We created this restaurant to be what we loved and in our community.
