Authentic Mexican Cuisine at Olamendi’s Dana Point

We stayed as a guest of the resort mentioned

One of our favorite places to get quick and delicious Mexican food in Orange County is at Olamendi’s. Olamendi’s is located in Dana Point right across from the beach, and was once a favorite dining spot of Richard Nixon. While on a recent staycation at the DoubleTree Suites in Doheny Beach, our family went sailing in Dana Point Harbor and then walked from our resort to Olamendi’s for lunch.

The kids love the festive vibe of Olamendi’s Dana Point and always play a game of ISpy while we are dining in the restaurant. There is so much for the kids to see in the restaurant that it keeps them entertained so my husband and I can enjoy some quality time talking without being interrupted by the kiddos.

After a long day in the sun sailing around Dana Point Harbor, a margarita was just what my husband and I needed. We toasted our glasses together in celebration of the beautiful life that we are living. When it came to lunch, all of our kids ordered a filling kid’s meal, and my husband and I were both in the mood for chimichangas. The chimichangas at Olamendi’s are the best in Orange County. The burrito comes filled with perfectly seasoned meat and is deep fried to golden perfection. You won’t be disappointed with anything you order at Olamendi’s, but the chimichanga is one you must try during one of your visits.

Once our kids had finished lunch, we took the short walk along the beach back to the DoubleTree Doheny Beach where we spent the rest of the afternoon relaxing by the pool. Whether you have a staycation at the DoubleTree Doheny Beach or just in the area, your family will have a delicious and festive dining experience at Olamendi’s in Dana Point. Olamendi’s Dana Point is located at 34660 Pacific Coast Hwy, Dana Point, CA 92624.
