Very welcoming decor, nice ambience, friendly attentive service. We've eaten here twice and enjoyed our meals very much. A high class act.

My wife had Chef Oscar signature pork chops on a bed of smashed potatoes, yesterday, and I ate his bass on risotto, following a very nice side salad and toasted bread with two spreads, and finished with his bananas flambé. House wines came with the meal as a special treat, and we ordered two more glasses, they were so good.... More

We ate there tonight. The food was exceptional. I started with a grilled zucchini and tomato appetizer with a gorgonzola sauce! I had the filet, perfectly cooked with mashed potatoes, we also had the tuna with sesames and risotto and the chef's signature pork chop...FABULOUS! Even though it was slow, service was excellent and the food superb! we'll be back!

Ninette's had just reopened in a new location in a B&B in Ajijic. The food was so authentic that I felt we were back in Paris. There were 9 in our party. Everyone in the group was so excited to find such a great French restaurant in town. Everyone's food was outstanding. The staff was attentive without being to fussy.... More

We ate twice here during our visit to Ajijic. The first time it was my birthday and I did quite a bit of research wanting something special for the occasion. Coming from Puerto Vallarta we are quite spoiled when it comes to great restaurants. We were not disappointed in any way with either of our visits. The atmosphere is warm,... More

The food is average, both Mexican and American style food. The service is a little slow, and sometimes they are a little reluctant to return your change, unless you insist.

It's the slow season in Ajijic, so there was only one other table giving us some concern. But we were wrong, the drinks were icy and strong, our meals (shrimp in a Thai green curry, breaded fish, and coffee crusted pork chops) were all terrific. The chef came by the table and chatted for a bit, and everything ran like... More

Beautiful venue, great set hive and even tho the gazpacho was not on the menu, the owner made sure 4 of us had it as a first course! My lamb dish was excellent. Hubby had a huge piece of salmon, nicely done. This is a first class restaurant in ever way!
