The upgrades are nice

It has been a long time since I have been here and the changes are long overdue. I understand it is under new management and the name will be changing soon. The atmosphere is delightful and still has the nice touch of the trains stopping and the food is very good

I can't add a photo as I already ate. The summer was fresh and had a very light and subtle dressing. The short rib sandwich had a really nice flavor mix and the sweet potato fries are light and crispy without a hint of greasiness. Trevor has clearly been revamping this place. It just went from a place we wound... More

We love visiting San Juan Cap. especially around Christmas because it's so festive. As creatures of habit, we always eat at Sarducci's because they food is consistently good and the service at well.

My wife and I enjoyed a quality meal at Sarducci's in the Capistrano Depot. Her boneless short rib was superb as was my rack of lamb. Each entry came with a salad (quality greens with an excellent blue cheese dressing), au gratin potatoes, a medley of red & yellow peppers with zucchini vegetables, and warm French bread. Watching the trains... More

As of October, new owner with planned change of name to Trevor on Tracks. Don't expect menu to be one that's being shown now on tripadvisor link. It's not. Now is kind of standard fare w

We had taken the Amtrak north fom Oceanside to see the Mission, and wanted somewhere close to the station for lunch before our return. You cannot get closer than this but the great thing is the food was not compromised by the Iocation. I had a French Dip sandwich and my wife had a Reuben. Both were deliciousn and although... More

This was our first time in San Juan Capristrano and chose to have lunch here. The food is decent, but pricey. The service was good. The patio is very peaceful and not as noisy as I thought it would have been being right next to a train stop. The credit card system isn't quite working properly.

We visited Sarducci's for brunch. I had breakfast and my wife had a sandwich. The bill came to over $30.00. The food was decent but nothing special. The outdoor seating was very nice next to a fountain with a lot of plants. The service was good.
