"4" AJIJIC offers a variety of international dishes, the largest wine list around the lake as well as delicious cocktails from its two bars looking to satisfy the most refined palate, the most intense cravings, to celebrate special moments, or just to enjoy a great night. Everything here is made with the highest quality, first class ingredients. The Afro-Asian fusion influenced dishes or the French based ones create a combination of flavors that is a delight for the most sophisticated palates. In our extensive wine list (with over 45 labels), you'll be able to find the best Mexican wines available today as well as the finest French, Italian , Spanish, Argentinian and Chilean and American wines. While our bars are known for their fresh juice Martinis there is also an impressive number of creative cocktails.

Mr. Glenroy. amazing cooking, the Martinis are a hose staple but I rather go for the Gin & Tonic, they have several major gins n stock. You cannot miss the salads... read more

We were so excited to dine at 4, had checked out their menu & website. It was a chilly rainy evening so we had reserved a table in front of the fireplace. When we arrived, they'd given it to another couple. Our waiter was a disaster. Didn't know the wine menu and insisted that a wine labeled 'rosado' had to... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your opinion, as we value the opinion of you patrons. However we must admit that we are quite confused by your comments.

Thank you for your comments as we learn from every single one.

This place was excellent. There was live music, great décor/atmosphere, the food and drinks were fantastic and the service was wonderful. The new owner (Gabriella?) came to our table and introduced herself, that was a nice little touch as well

We went here to celebrate a birthday. Liked everything about it. The waiters are friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The recommendations were perfect. We shared many of the the items on the appetizer list and three items from the main list. All were terrific.

We have dined at this marvelous restaurant 4 times since moving to Lake Chapala a couple of months ago and it is exceptional. Those of you who think the prices are high (maybe for the area but not for the quality and elegance of the food) should try their Sunday Champagne Brunch. We attended their first yesterday and it was... More

Number 4 restaurant clearly has a spectacular chef in "David" ! The food was absolutely delicious and presented with great style and elegance. Service was excellent and the price for our diner for two very reasonable.

Have only been there twice, once for a Tall Boys Show, the other for a Dirty Black Beans show. The venue is ideal for dinner with dancing with easy access to the dance floor and excellent acoustics pretty much throughout the restaurant. And the food is superb with an exotic Africa-inspired twist to many of the dishes.

Thank you so much for taking the time to give us your feedback. You came on Valentine’s Day, and on that night, the bulk of reservations where made between 6:30 and 7:30, which created a bottleneck for our floor staff, our “POS” system, and of course our kitchen. One cannot deliver over 75 fine dining meals with three chefs in... More

Some have complained about the prices but in a lot of cases the bill is run up if you drink. I don't so I don't mind paying for an excellent meal with great service. The short ribs are the best I've had anywhere. Friendly, welcoming atmosphere. They have entertainment but I go before the musicians start. Try it, I'll bet... More
