Awesome Food! 4/1/2006

If you haven't tried Ramos House, you just about haven't lived! I've been a huge fan of John Q's cuisine for ages and if you like "good food", then you're in for a treat. This San Juan Capistrano gem is hidden behind the railroad tracks in the Los Rios district. There's nothing here I wouldn't try, though I admit I don't go for the more exotic fare such as rabbit or duck, their seasonal pain perdue (french toast) will melt in your mouth. Check their menu out on to see for yourself what amazing food is in store for you when you visit this restaurant. The restaurant has been top-rated in the Zagat guide for Orange County for the past few years, and it'll only take one meal for you to be equally convinced! more

Tuesday through Friday. Current specialties include: Potato, Corn & Buttermilk Crab Cakes w/ Field Greens & Smoked Chili Remoulade; Mac 'n Cheese w/ Smoked Chicken & Asparagus; Southern Fried Chicken Salad w/ Buttermilk Dressing; Scotch Quail Eggs; and Warm Rock Shrimp Bread Pudding. Dessert selections include Warm Banana Berry Shortcake, Buttermilk Pie and a variety of Home Turned Ice Creams. The beverage selections include home squeezed juices; an All-American beer and wine menu and Orange County's best Soju Bloody Mary loaded with pickled beans and crab claws. They have great food and service! I had the Mac and cheese and its the best I ever had. The scotch quail eggs explosion of flavor. Dinner for two cost around $80.00. more

Charming and delicious in Historic San Juan 8/10/2005

The Ramos House Cafe, on historic Los Rios Street across the train tracks from the Amtrak depot, is a real gem. The seating is all outside of an historic home on a casual, rustic patio set under a huge tree. But the setting is deceptive as to the food you will find here. The chef comes up with the most inventive and wonderful dishes - very sophisticated, but also very casual and accessible. The weekend brunch is just delicious. They have wonderful beignets, and I love their fried chicken salad with cranberries and pumpkin seed dressing. Everything is just great. They have unique homemade desserts that are to die for. They are only open for breakfast and lunch. Prepare for crowds and a wait on Saturday and Sunday, but you can always put your name in and walk around the wonderful old historic homes and shops in the area. more

Contemporary American Cuisine 8/1/2005

This is one of my favorite weekend restaurants. The Ramos House Cafe is an old home in the heart of the Los Rios District. It only has patio seating. But the decor is centered around a beautiful mulberry tree. It is next to the train station so trains will pass by. Which to me gives it its charm. My favorite item on the menu is the Southern Fried Chicken Salad with Buttermilk Dressing. On the weekends, it's a brunch which comes with a beverage, starter and entrée. I recommend their pomegranate mimosa or their bloody mary's. more
