Fine Dining at it's Best!

Wonderful attention to details, we were made to feel very special, excellent service by our waiter Ulysses and the food was fabulous, creative and appealing. We had an amazing experience and look forward to returning.

I have been to Ofelia's on a number of occasions at this point. The variety of dishes I have eaten have all been well executed and delicious. The service is impeccable; the waitstaff orchestrate what feels like a very high end dining experience with a professionalism and efficiency. I can't recommend the restaurant enough for a great meal.

Fine food with impeccable service ! Duck and escargot served to perfection ! Very impressed with the Mexican wine selection. What a treat to have a splendid meal at a place where nothing has been overseen.

Another great meal! Duck ravolli and pan seared salmon were both a 10! Daughter had the salmon tartar and the duck magret. The menu is quite extensive as is the wine list. On a sad note, the owner passed away earlier in the week. I hope the family keeps it going.

Simply Excellent! The price is a little high for Guadalajara's average price, but if you want to have a nice and high quality dinner this is the place you should go.

A friend recommended this restaurant highly as she and her husband went there often when he was alive. I agreed to drive her from Ajijic to eat here as she doesn't drive herself. We arrived and I was very impressed as the décor was tastefully done and everything was presented beautifully. Much as I would have enjoyed a glass of... More

Service was exceptional at this delightful bistro. There are multiple seating options inside and out depending on how the weather is behaving. Dining in the private room in the wine cellar would most certainly be an experience. The waiter was most helpful in recommending Mexican wines and did not steer us to the most expensive. The owner was expansive and... More

What a find! The way all the dishes were presented, with nothing on the plate that couldn't be eaten, reminds me of CIA trained chefs. The artichoke starter was superb, caesar salad spot on and my pan roasted salmon was delicious and artfully presented. There are numerous dishes to choose from, about 7 pages worth. Great wine list too.

A little hard to find - not much of a front door. Next door to Blue Fish on Pablo Neruda. Lovely interior, including garden room, small banquet room, wine cellar dining area, and more. Excellent service, good wine list, eclectic menu, and everything we have tried is delicious, in our 4 visits so far. And we will be back again.
