“Great Sunday lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Stopped here for lunch after visiting the Mission. Very good food, great service and very charming garden patio made for a great dining experience. I would eat here again next time I'm in the area.

“A great place for brunches and lunches.”

It is close to the Mission Basilica San Juan Capistrano and great for going to brunch on Sunday. I hear the bar menu is also excellent and will try that. have been here many times for lunch.

“Delightful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

My family has been visiting this restaurant for a number of years. We are always pleased with the menu offerings. The wait staff is great. We prefer to sit outdoors in the beautiful garden setting.

“Excellent on every level.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

We had lunch at this restaurant quite a few years ago and wanted to see if it still was as enjoyable as we found it on our last visit.

It was an even better experience! Our waiter, Rueben, was a delight. Funny, knowledgeable and provided wonderful service.

We all ordered a different entrée and we were all very happy with our selections. Salads were fresh, meat dish was well prepared and my crab and scallop cakes were very, very good.

We will be back!
