Good flavor and sauces

Not the cheapest..but well worth the visit. This guy/girl (not sure who the chef is) gives great flavor. Nice ambiance..also wish we had booked at this B & B. place looked great!!!

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...

We went on a Saturday night, and I had been expecting something really special, having read the reviews here. First, if you're going be advised that this is not a casual restaurant. Ladies and their escorts should dress accordingly: no jeans for men, wear a shirt that buttons (preferably long sleeved) and the ladies should wear skirts or good pants.... More

This is a charming place. Every time we've been there, the chef comes out to say hello. The food is always excellent. The flavors are unique. It's one of the nicest restaurants in town -- and something of a secret!

Husband and I ate twice at Jardin de Ninette during our stay in Ajijic - our first night and our last night (of a 5 night trip), so that tells you how much we enjoyed it. Service was excellent - felt very cared for and the servers listened well and always had a smile for us when we interacted with... More

Went to this restaurant at the beginning of January and had an excellent meal. This time my wife chose the lamb dish I had had last time and, again, it was great. I asked for the Osso Boco but they didn't have any but there was one lamb shank. When it came it was all off the bone and roasted... More
