After touring the mission and taking a walking tour of historic San Juan Capistrano, I stopped at L 'Hirondelle for lunch. It was a nice afternoon, so I sat on the patio. The restaurant is peaceful and away from the normal flow of tourists. In fact, I struck up a conversation with a couple of locals at the next table and they wondered how I'd found the place. (Thank you, Trip Advisor!)
I enjoyed a 1/2 bottle of Chardonnay and the salad special of the day - the Nicoise ........ followed by an espresso.
Service was great - and the value for the meal was good.
I'd like to go back for dinner - or even another lunch on the tranquil patio again.
