Tallula’s is a vibrant, SoCal-inspired Mexican restaurant and bar that’s like a hidden “coastal pearl” in Santa Monica Canyon. We’re tucked away between the beach and mountains in a funky, historic pagoda-style building with a huge patio, where margaritas are always flowing in Felix’s Bar, the aroma of handmade corn tortillas is emanating from the kitchen, and everyone’s digging into platters of freshly-shucked oysters and heaps of cheesy nachos.
Whether you live in the canyon or you’re just passing through, we’re the kind of fun, chill destination that offers a little something for everyone. Earlier in the evening, families and kids gather over organic chicken enchiladas suizas and soft tacos, before the vibe shifts to dates and groups of friends clinking seasonal cocktails and sharing cóctel de camarón and large molcajetes. During weekend brunch, surfers and bikers fuel up on breakfast burritos, neighbors bring their dogs and linger over cups of artisan coffee on the patio, and pals catch up over micheladas and chilaquiles.
