Tiburon is one of the most upscale communities in the Bay Area, and an exemplary place to live if you are looking for a first-class home with a view of San Francisco. Tiburon is bordered by Corte Madera to the north and Mill Valley to the west, but is otherwise surrounded by the Bay. Tiburon experiences a Mediterranean climate.
Tiburon features numerous small boutiques and restaurants, catering both to local residents and to tourists. Most of the town’s restaurants are located on or near Main Street, near the ferry landing. One of the oldest Tiburon restaurants is Sam’s Anchor Cafe, founded in 1920. Sam’s is especially popular on sunny days for the outdoor dining on its harbor-front deck. It is one of the only restaurants in the San Francisco Bay with a public dock for pleasure boats. Other restaurants to include upscale dining with expansive Bay views are The Caprice, Guaymas, The Dynasty and Servino Ristorante. On Friday evenings in the spring and summer, the town’s Main Street is closed to vehicles and transformed into a large alfresco dining area for “Friday Nights on Main”. Local restaurants and bars provide outdoor dining and drinks, with music and lively crowds helping create a festive atmosphere. There is also a small shopping center named The Cove in the Bel Aire neighborhood.
