Wonderful, charming spot right across the street from THE MISSION ~ Love the top of each hour when the bells peel .. ..

Cozy and comfortable inside with wonderful, friendly help .. ..

Had the PORK CHOP w/ Cherry Sauce and the Beef Bourguignon .. .. Both were good but just a bit dry .. ..

Looking forward to coming back again and within easy walking distance of the AMTRAK station .. ..

We wished that we lived closer to this amazing restaurant located adjacent to Mission San Juan Capistrano, but we try to come whenever we are in the area. We love sitting outside and having our lunch in the sheltered patio area. The colorful umbrellas keep the sun from being too hot, and the little fountain and trees create a tranquil ambiance. The Country French decor of the interior makes a warm and cozy atmosphere for a romantic dinner. On our last visit, we were here for Mother's Day. Although the menu was limited, we chose our favorite meal which is salmon with dill sauce, veggies, and mashed potatoes. We can't wait to return! It's a real treat to hear the church bells ring while we are dining.

Table was waiting for us on outside patio when we arrived with my family. Service was excellent and outside heaters made it perfect. The menu selection was just right for a Mother's Day brunch. The food was amazing. We would definitely come back again.

we have talked about going here for ages. We will be back soon. the service is excellent the food is awesome and although fine dining you can have an awesome meal for 2 with wine and get out the door for $100. the french onion soup is awesome, the cherries jubilee for two for dessert is a must. this is a wine and beer dining house. no full bar but you dont miss it. great suggestion from our waiter as well. next visit i will try the dessert wine he recommended.

From the Rustic exterior to the Romantic Interior, L'Hirondelle exceeded our expectations on every level. We have missed out on years of pleasure and will not make the same mistake in the future as we l try to make up for the past. From the Greeting on entering to the outstanding service of Jenn and the waiter assistants, the satisfaction of having received an excellent presentation of superbly prepared and presented dining pleasures, you will definitely enjoy the entire experience. My wife started with a great Spinach and Bacon salad with a fantastic dressing and I chose the French Onion Soup which captured every flavor bud in my mouth. We shared a Prawn Cocktail that is the Best of the Best in Orange County. No, it wasn't cut up shrimp. Our entrees were LaBeouf Bourginone with mashed potatoes and Petrale Sole with a chopped lemon rind and caper garnish and accompanied with mashed potatoes. Sadly, we did not have room for dessert.
