Viva Modern Mexican cuisine is located in the beautiful La Arcada Plaza, overlooking the turtle pond.
This iconic location has been a well-known restaurant spot in downtown Santa Barbara for over 70 years. It has been home to such well-known eateries as Acapulco, State Side and most recently, Cielito.
With Viva Modern Mexican we are striving to bring a vibrant Mexico City-inspired menu coupled with fun, friendly service to one of the most beautiful locations in downtown Santa Barbara.
Our location is fondly remembered by many Santa Barbarians as being a local’s favorite during its’ Acapulco days. We are hoping to re-establish Viva as one of Santa Barbara’s premier watering holes.
We look forward to serving you soon.
