Great kitchen & bar! Best deal is at Happy Hour Bar. Appetizers specials and Happy Hour drinks are a great experience in what their kitchen/chefs have to offer!!

Second time here and consistently very good!! Great service, good variety food and energetic space. Tonight I had the half chicken and mashed potatoes and broccoli- was Delish! Happy hour even on Sunday's so you can't beat a $5.50 glass of wine! I'll be back!

My wife and I enjoyed a DELICIOUS lunch at Sundried Tomato on the recommendation of the concierge at our hotel. She sent us to the right place. The ambiance was pleasant, the wait staff professional and personable, and the food was great. The mussels appetizer was...awesome, and the trio of salads we shared was a distinct set of complementary flavors.... More

Sun Dried Tomato is a quaint little dining spot right on the main street in San Juan Capistrano, just a short walk from the Mission. Has outside eating as well as their indoor space......Menu is good and they offer evening specials as well. Good wine selection

Great outdoor patio atmosphere or even location to view the Annual Swallow's Day Parade. I've used Sundried for catering as well, they have great upscale sandwich and veggie platters.

Plenty of out door seating as well as upscale indoor dining. Our server was very attentive. Food was yummy and was served pretty quickly. I couldn't stop eating the bread with butter. From start to finish our service was friendly.
