perfect for any event... nestled by mission san juan capistrano... El Adobe de Capistrano offers an amazing wedding and reception Location in San Juan Capistrano, Orange County, southern California.

The restaurant site has been recognized as a California State Historical Landmark uniting the Miguel Yorba Adobe (1797), with the Juzgado (court & jail), established in 1812. The walls forming El Adobe’s Cantina were part of the original Miguel Yorba Adobe. The wine cellar is housed in the original Carcel (jail) cell. The ground beneath the foyer served as a passageway for Seeley & Wright stagecoaches, until the advent to the Santa Fe Railroad in 1888. In 1910, Georgia Mott Vander-Leck bought and unified the properties. Thirty-six years later she sold it to a visionary Rancho Mission Viejo farmer, Mr. Clarence Brown. Brown built the El Adobe restaurant, which opened auspiciously on July 8, 1948 with the wedding and reception of the First Commandant of Camp Pendleton, General Fagan. Yearly, hundreds of couples continue the tradition as they marry in the garden-nestled Wedding Chapel and celebrate in the adjacent Palenque Room.

The Palenque Room (seats 100-250) is the most popular setting for wedding receptions. This open atrium-like room offers a ceiling that slides open to the sky. The room features its own antiqued wood bar. Floor to ceiling windows view the adjoining garden area along the southern wall. Terra cotta tile pavers make any space in the room a potential dance floor. The private Garden Patio (dinner seating 200) and Chapel area offers the perfect setting for a wedding ceremony (ceremony seating up to 300) or an outdoor barbecue.


For smaller gatherings like rehearsal dinners or bridal showers the Portola Room, with its classic adobe architecture, stained glass windows, and vaulted wood ceiling, seats up to 46. The Las Flores Room offers a window view of the Veranda and Garden, and seats up to 60. The Cárcel, the original ironed barred jail cell, now houses the wine cellar and offers private dining for up to 8 guests.

El Adobe de Capistrano is located just two blocks south of the Mission San Juan Capistrano and train depot. San Juan Capistrano is convienently located between Los Angeles and San Diego counties. 31891 Camino Capistrano, San Juan Capistrano, CA 92675.

Our wedding isn't until next year, but we have already booked this location. The service we have received for all of our planning so far, has been fantastic. The staff is very friendly and has gone out of their way to make sure we get exactly what we want. The food is great. I am very happy that we have chosen this location for our reception.

We could not be more happy with this venue!!! They were so incredibly flexible through this whole experience with them. Aileen was wonderful and always took her time with us at every meeting never making us feel rushed. The service was impeccable at our actual wedding from the bartender to the wait staff and our decor assistant Nirvana. Everyone of our guests absolutely raved about the food and drinks and everything was on point. Food came out hot and perfectly cooked and no one had to wait for drinks. They really hd our best interests at heart through this whole process. Trust me, it is really nice having someone calm and collected around like Aileen amidst the wedding weekend craziness!!! Thanks guys!!!

All my guest raved about how awesome the food was. We had the Portolla room and it was perfect. They did forget a few place settings , but were very quick and accommodating and I don't think anyone even noticed. We only had 2 waiters that were helping us out most of the time, and they were really working hard to make sure we were happy. I really appreciate it. Everything was beautiful. Thank you so much for making our rehearsal yummy and stress free.

Most beautiful place and really awesome food. The venue is extremely busy so it's hard to make deadlines they set because of minimal communication. However, if you are organized and self motivated it shouldn't be a problem. The servers were flawless, the city is gorgeous, the bridal suite is super fun, the event coordinators were always working hard. When working with a budget, you really have to be disciplined to manage it cause things add up quick. Some errors were made at our wedding but nothing imperative and the event coordinators were quick to hear us out and meet us in the middle. I love this place. I would totally do it again here. Everyone loved the food and enjoyed the space.

The wedding planners there Lauren and her sister corinn did an amazing job. they were easy to get a hold of and never had to stress with them around, they made sure everything ran smoothly! I did not stress one bit on the wedding day! Besides the fact they are awesome at their jobs they are great time and just awesome people! We had so much fun with them! I sincerely reccomend having your wedding their solely on the wedding coordinators... Their food is amazing as well as their margaritas. I definitely reccomend having that at your wedding or party.

The venue is beautiful! However the special event manager wasn't managing anything. Every time I attempted to talk to her I talked to someone else. I very rarely talked to the same person twice. It was next to impossible to get a hold of her.

It is a great, beautiful venue and a good value for your money but the special events manager was very unresponsive. It was difficult to get a hold of her and she often said she would do something and then would never do it.
