South Laguna. Has the best and most exclusive beaches in the county (in particular Three Arch Bay).

My second choice - being that it's home to the original Olamendi's, one of my favorite eating spots.

El Patio definitely pre-dates Olamendi's but I never liked it as much. I had an argument with somebody recently that maybe you can resolve Fontucky - wasn't Olamendi's originally located across the street from El Patio before moving to the current PCH location? I think Christina's moved in to that spot shortly after (owned by one of the family members). They insisted original Olamendi's has always been where it is.

You're both wrong. The first Olamendi's was located on the West side of N. El Camino Real in San Clemente. The location on PCH where they've been for many years used to be Henry's Mexican Restaurant, owned by the Serna family of Capo Beach. They (Olamendi's) were never located across from El Patio.

I liked Henry's food. Olamendi's food I can take or leave. El Patio is my favorite. I've been eating their food since 1960, and they've been at that address since 1953.
