Caf Jardin

The "coastal garden" cuisine at Café Jardin marries vibrantly fresh California produce with a French pedigree.

The restaurant is located in full view of the central flower gardens. Dining takes place outdoors for the most part, moving indoors in case of inclement weather (a rarity in Orange County).

  • There is a $5 Gardens admission charge at entry which supports the upkeep of the Gardens
  • 18% Gratuity will be automatically added to parties of six or more
