“Perfect place for lunch after visiting the mission”
Reviewed June 10, 2010

We missed this on our visit to the mission, but took a wrong a turn the next day, after I'd read about this place in a guidebook, and ended up back in San Juan Capistrano just in time for lunch. We were grateful for the detour back here. The food was excellent, service attentive and friendly, and the perfect historic atmosphere. We hope to be back on a future visit. Don't miss it if you're in the area.

“DO you want a HUGE salad.”
Reviewed May 12, 2010

It was lunch time and a salad sounded good. The serve the biggest salads I have ever seen. I can't imagine the size of the dinner meals.
