We eat here last night. The food was okay but expensive! The view was beautiful! I would suggest you come for a drink and enjoy the view!

We enjoyed very much the view like always. The seafood they prepare is deliocious. We love the pizzas made in the Wood oven. The managers are very friendly and they are talk to the clients all the time. Sometimes the food doesn't come so fast...More

This restaurant has wonderful atmosphere with the best view at Lake Chapala. Food is above average. Pizzas are very good. (Thursdays are 2 X 1 pizzas). Fetuccine Alfred is delicious. My husband had the Arrachera and said it was excellent. Will go again.

If you are like us, you’ve never heard of the place and therefore have never been there before. Well, let’s make it clear from the get go: there’s simply nothing like it in Ajijic. With the usual hype about places that do not deserve it,...More
