This is a great, traditional Mexican restaurant just down from Best Western Dana Point. For the adventerous, they have their own Congac, which is fabulous, but is expensive.

Our family enjoyed their meals at Brunch. We ate La Dona Tostadas, Enchiladas Canisita, Taco Salad, Bean Burritos. Fun environment.

Not altogether authentic in our humble Latin opinion, but good. Margaritas were great, salsa just ok. A popular place walking distance for those in time-shares on the same side of PCH. Has a nice Mexican atmosphere.

I've eaten at Olamendi's on PCH 3 times. Convenient and somewhat scenic location. Unfortunately, each time was a disappointment. Chicken and fish were overcooked. Sides are bland. Salsa seems fresh, but does not stand out. Simply not appetizing or enjoyable.
