seafood/burgers/steak/italian near Capistrano Beach

2 adults visiting from Calgary Feb 9-16. We are looking for seafood, steaks, Italian, burgers, & breakfast. We really would like a restaurant we can walk to on the beach (staying at Riviera Shores Resort), if possible. We don't mind "hole in the wall" as long as food is good, clean and service is decent. Not interested in anywhere that we cannot come directly from the course, wearing golf clothing. Our first trip to San Clemente/Dana Point area.

  1. I believe you are staying in Orange County, not San Diego.

    1. And I think that you are SOL for walking.

      1. Don't miss Riders Club Cafe in San Clemente for burgers, craft beer and chocolate pudding.

        1. Very few places within walking distance, especially along the beach. The area around Dana Harbor has a little of everything, but driving is a lot more realistic. There are plenty of holes in the wall in San Clemente, and Coast Hwy in Dana Point has a number of places. If you're looking for a sandwich, don't miss Tutor and Spunky's Deli on PCH in Dana Point.

            Not Italian, but I have very good and great memories about our meals at Olamendis Restaurant in Capo Beach.

            It is an easy drive, as long as the hillsides are not falling down and blocking PCH (Pacific Coast Highway).
