Two stars for Inn of the Seventh Ray in Topanga


The Inn of the Seventh Ray in Topanga Canyon has been many things through the years -- the purported summer retreat of evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson in the 1930s, later a church (or two), a garage, a gas station and auto junkyard before this neglected property became a restaurant. Until recently, though, it was more a curiosity than a destination for anybody who cared about eating.

Now it has a serious chef and some serious food.

Read this week's review, and find out why the Inn gets two stars.

The heck are you talking about pal ??? A curiosity ??
This restaurant has been around for a while, it is very lovely, people have their weddings there, parties, all kind of beautiful events. It is tranquill, cute and very much reflects the Topanga community vibe. The wines and food are good and it is a sweet romantic spot loved by Angelenos for years.

I've been going there for a long time now and to say that it was NEVER A DESTINATION ABOUT EATING I can only suggest YOU SHOULD STRONGLY CHANGE YOUR JOB, PAL !
