La Cantina

Don’t let this hotel restaurant fool you at first glance: La Cantina is as authentic as they come. This is an incredible stop for flavorful Mexican dishes and colorful mixed drinks. We tried some seafood entrees and were blown away by the fresh flavors of the shrimp and fish. Speaking of fish, La Cantina has blended margaritas the size of a fishbowl, and you’ll drink every last drop of this sweet nectar garnished with bright fruits on the rim. If the weather is too nice to stay inside, check out their great patio!

Pro Tip: Get the mango margarita!

Flavor Indian & Asian Fare

Flavor Indian and Asian Fare is by far the coolest fusion restaurant around. Come for the impeccable interior design, and stay for the eclectic menu bursting with international flavors. We had the best time ordering dishes from both the Indian and Asian aisles of the menu, and the setting was so relaxing and refined. If you head back down the hall, you’ll find an amazing international grocery store!

Pro Tip: Check out their Thai tea!

Sake Japanese Restaurant

Need your sushi fix? Sake Sushi in Brookings is excellent, and the price is right! We were amazed by the great menu selection and definitely did a double-take, looking at the incredible menu prices. Sushi masters are working behind a counter making your fresh, made-to-order rolls, and the service is kind and prompt. We loved the soup, and every sushi roll we tried was perfect!

Pro Tip: Arrive a bit before the lunch rush, they fill up fast!
