We were late in the afternoon so maybe everyone was tired? The food is good, though I don't think great. Lot of money for brunch. It is a beautiful spot, I happened to see a couple of ladies complaining about something and the owner just brushed them off. Not great customer service.

Ramos House is a hidden gem tucked in the Los Rios District of San Juan Capistrano. We ate there for Sunday Brunch. We got there early so we didn't have problems getting a table. It was mid-February and the weather was quite nice but we were provided lap blankets. What a nice touch! The menu changes regularly. So check on... More

Can't say anything good or bad about the food, but the bloody marys are the worst in my 50 plus years of imbibing. For $15.00 they serve a small nasty pink colored concoction jammed with green beans and a shrimp. They should be ashamed to put it on the menu.

The food is Magnificent and there is something for everyone. They had a Guitarist which added to the old world charm of this GREAT restaurant. The service was impeccable and it was hard to get an empty cup of coffee. I plan on going many times to this very unique place !!

Love the Ramos House. Unique menu with very fresh ingredients. The Bloody Mary is a meal in itself. Always come here for special occasions..

This used to be one of our favorite local restaurants. The atmosphere hasn't changed, but the prices have gone thru the roof, especially considering the portions served. A weekend breakfast hit $125.00 for three folks, more than double the fees of a short time earlier. Quality is good but not anywhere worth the expense.

What a delightful little spot to have a perfect breakfast, brunch or lunch. The food is delicious. The orange juice is so delicious. Fresh squeezed. Oh my!!!! The menu offers a series of delectable delights. Absolutely delicious. The hot chocolate is so huge we shared and they were kind enough to serve it to us in separate cups. They provide... More
