I really enjoyed meeting my friend at this place. I don't know if I'll return but it was an experience. The place is quaint including the bathroom. I liked the food but the price was more than I would want to pay on my budget. Love the patio seating the very help staff once you get their attention. Very accommodating... More

Ramos House Cafe is a quaint restaurant in the Los Rios Historic District of San Juan Capistrano. It is easy to find. If you are at the San Juan Capistrano train station, cross the tracks and you are in the middle of the Historic District. Ramos House Cafe is the second restaurant to your right. It has a lovely outdoor... More

Its around $45 and you only get 1 drink, (which is either a coffee, a juice or a glass of inexpensive champagne). For two people last week with tip was $120. That's one appetizer, 1 main and 1 coffee ea. One of us ordered... More

This is a great place for breakfast next to the train and on the quaint street in San Juan. A must if you're in town.

Tucked in Los Rios Historic district across the train tracks of downtown San Juan Capistrano is Ramos House Café. A small, unassuming, and very charming restaurant. We came in on a Friday around 11 AM and we were seated promptly. There is a dining area on the porch of this home but we sat in the patio. I love the... More

After our visit to the Mission at San Juan Capistrano, we discovered a small restaurant within walking distance of the site. The Ramos House Cafe is on a quiet street right next to the railroad tracks. Food is very fresh, especially since the herbs are grown right there. Our server was delightful and very efficient. We had the crab hash,... More

We just happened to stumble onto this restaurant based upon recommendations from people working in the area. We ordered the Crab Hash and the Crab Cake Salad. Both were the best meals we have had on this vacation trip. Very friendly service put this restaurant right at the top of our list. Enjoy
