“The patio across from the Mission is amazing on a warm day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

Got there shortly after they opened as they get busy. Service was very good and the pasta with tomatos, garlic and pine nuts was very good as was the tuna melt.

“Love it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

I love this place, the wait staff is friendly and the food is delicious and you can't beat the atmosphere espcially if you sit outside in the beautiful California sunshine. Dont for get to get a martini, they too are delicious

“Very nice restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Eat here often and it's generally very good. Love the outdoor patio with fountain. Service can be hit and miss, but overall it's a great restaurant

“Close to the Mission”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

The meal my mother and I had was adequate - perhaps it was just what we ordered. The wait staff was SO NICE and friendly - made us feel like locals rather than the tourists that we were. The portions were good. I would go again, but just watch what you order - nothing too exotic or interesting - stick with the basics

“Great food and location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

You can't go wrong at the Cedar Creek Inn. We've gone many times with friends for lunch and have always been pleased. Their menu is great, the food fantastic, service very good and the location is perfect. Sit outside and experience San Juan Capistrano's mission from just across the street.
