Surprisingly good!

We had dinner the other night at La Una, and it was one of the best meals we have had in Ajijic. The service was lovely, the grounds were great, but it was the quality of the food which makes this place stand out. Try the Snapper....amazing!!!

I have a rule of thumb... If I have a bad experience at a restaurant I always go back. Let's face it - everyone can have a bad day. So I did go back - for breakfast instead of supper. It was just as disappointing. The service was so slow and the food was just not very good. Third try... More

The food here was fine. The service was fine too when we got it but it was really slow and I am not a rushed person

Terrific menu for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Best food in Ajijic! If the courtyard were a little more lush like some of the other restaurants with their gardens, it would be perfect!

Thanks for the wonderful review! It is true that the garden is not so lush. We only planted it a few months ago and are very happy with the way it is growing. Douglas More

We first went here for breakfast then again then lunch then dinner and our great regret from our recent visit to Ajijic was that we didn't manage back for dinner again. The dinner menu offers something a little different - we had confit of duck a la orange for me and duck breast with a raspberry sauce for my wife.... More

Four of us ate at La Una twice this week. The setting is lovely, two blocks from the plaza in Ajijic, in a garden setting with well-spaced tables and plenty of umbrellas to shield from the sun. The menu is extensive though confusing -- for example the beef selections are scattered throughout pages of the menu; I suggest they merge... More

We went here with friends for their fixed price Valentine's dinner. It was tasty and portions were good but it lacked in the overall presentation and had no "wow" factor.

La Una has recently moved to a new location, and with it they have created a new look Sunday brunch that is superb. Sit outside in the garden or inside in a spacious and airy room, and indulge in almost anything your heart desires: fresh fruit, yoghurt, pastries, eggs any way you please (including an eggs bennie to die for),...

eaten there 3 times in the last month. Breakfast, brunch and dinner and tried the new chefs specials each time and they they all been excellent. My description would be Yucatan fusion, not really a great fan of Mexican food but this is different and we like it. 50/50 Mexican, gringo customers

Had Tapas. Not much food for a high cost compared to other restaurants. Also had a Caesar salad which was just some flat Romaine lettuce leaves with a dressing on top.
