New Location with Two Great Menus

Now located next to Donas Donas (The Doughnut Shop across for the Farmacia Guadaljara), They offer a fast food menu with Gyros, Caesar Salad, and much more, OR a traditional menu with lamb, steaks, duck tacos, and more.

Enjoyed the new location with nice garden in the back. A little disappointed in the food. We ordered Caesar Salads and they were soggy and overdressed. The coffee ground coated pork chops with bourbon sauce were very good and cooked exactly as we ordered them. The chocolate cake was boring but the sauce was good. The wait staff were on... More

We had an excellent meal at Ninette's. We began with an appetizer of delicious duck tacos, tender, juicy, and just a little spicy. We were hungry for a steak, so we went for their beef and it was perfect. The new location, near Guadalajara Pharmacy and next to the donut shop, is elevated a little bit from the carretera so...

Came back from vacation to new location on the careterra. This new setting is lovely inside and out in the garden. The food is all fresh and very good, great flavors. The service was excellent and even the chef visited the table. The price for the quality was excellent. We could hear people commenting from the other tables how much... More

Oscar is a young eager chef! I find he's food to be exiting and different to everybody else in the area! You can tell he is passionate about food!

Only a short distance away from their former location, Ninette now enjoys a much larger space with a finer ambiance. The first time we ate there was for dinner. The food was well-prepared, and the service was excellent. The portions were on the small side, so I would not rate the restaurant as a great value for the money. When... More

The restaurant is absolutely wonderful. Last year we celebrated my birthday at this restaurant and I couldn't be happier with the food, service, music and the whole atmosphere. The owner and the staff were so accommodating and professional, that I would love to spend my birthday there again. The food is delicious and the prices are very reasonable.

... Tucked inside the Casa de Sol B + B, its new-ish location. Tastes and feels French. Intimate setting, service is attentive and very unobtrusive. An original concept of a half size portion of a lovely meal is just right for lunch. My steak was tender, flavourful and cooked to perfection. I look forward to returning on a Saturday evening...
