Sol Del Sur Bistro - Closed

31115 Rancho Viejo Road San Juan Capistrano, CA 92675 | San Juan Capistrano | 949-487-5225

Location Description:

A gem of a find tucked into a remote plaza north of Ortega Highway, Sol del Sur Bistro offers a Europe-heavy culinary trip around the world, with ingredients and flavor combinations not found anywhere else in Orange County, all at surprisingly reasonable prices. The menu changes with the seasons, but suckling pig ragù over handmade tagliatelle with grilled-pumpkin agrodolce was the perfect winter dish. Beet-and-goat-cheese salad gets a fantastic update with finger lime, an Australian fruit known as "citrus caviar." There are more than a dozen small plates and a reasonably good wine list; go in with friends, have tapas and wine and chat the evening away.
