Local gem that should be shared with others! Tucked in a neighborhood shopping area in San Juan Capistrano, South Coast Kitchen is worth the find for an intimate, warm ambience that is civilized, but not stuffy, cuisine that is sophisticated and beautifully presented, but not...More

This little restaurant is fabulous! It is gaining popularity because of its fresh menu, excellent preparation and attention to detail. We went on a Wednesday night and barely got a table. Next time we will make reservations. What a treat!

The cheese platter and bruschetta were amazing. Treats to your tongue with a myriad of flavors and textures. The seafood risotto was average and the filet was actually chewy on the outside but good in the middle. The fish and chips met expectations. The tuxedo...More

Based on reviews we decided to visit for dinner. Upon entering I wasn't pleased with the look. It's a single room that holds about 30 people. It's fine, not unattractive but I just like other types of décor. It was also HOT. I asked them...More
