The traffic was horrible, so we pulled off the freeway and stumbled to this jewel of a restaurant. We dined on the patio and were treated like gold. The lunch was the best I had this year. Duck salad with berries and a raspberry sauce, my wife had the escargots and a special ahi burger. The next time in Capistrano I will return .
Marvelous food, nice wine list, excellent service, and the epitome of California settings. The patio is surrounded by a low adobe wall covered in bouganvillea of every color. With the old mission right across the street, and the noon bells ringing in the basilica, I felt like I was back in the California I remember from my childhood. I chose the restaurant on a whim to celebrate a milestone birthday. I couldn t be happier with the choice.
The atmosphere that Ali and Lisa have created is the most amazing thing that i have ever witnessed the was that Ali comes and works side by side with all of his servers and chefs is quite spectacular he is the kindest most caring person i have ever met
A most charming Belgian-French restaurant in the heart of San Juan Capistrano. We highly recommend this place...great menue and wine list...impeccable service and personal attention by the owner. A true five star.
