It's not that this restaurant was busy, but something happened here that I've not experienced in 7 years of living in Mexico: the waiter brought me my check before I was finished and before I asked for "la cuenta, por favor". It made me feel like I was at a Denny's - hurry up, eat, and get out. Now to... More

The food was good, but the sevice was just awful. The waiter was in a bad mood; they refused to serve the special anounced on the front door, because it was a "breakfast" dish; and to top it off, they included te gratuity on the bill. It's no wonder the waiter cared little for providing a good service. Do not... More

We love this little café just off the plaza. We visited one afternoon for lunch and sat in the courtyard. The food was truly delicious and service prompt and friendly. My full review is at www.lakechapalarestaurantguide.blogspot.com

My friend & I had several lunches here and they were wonderful The fresh baked croissants are to die for. All the lunches were so tasty. We hoped to get back for a dinner but we ran out of time. They have a limited menu but very good food.

Thank you for the nice review! Sorry to hear that you ran out of time and couldn't make it for dinner. I believe in keeping our menu limited. By doing so we can ensure you that every plate is VERY GOOD and no plates are just so so. Thanks again for taking the time to review Restaurante La Una. Douglas More

Had a very good bowl of yogurt and fruit at La Una. The homemade rasberry jam was very yummy!! I wish I had bought a jar to bring home with me. The music in the restaurant was very calming and relaxing. The back patio was pretty. Well worth the visit and of course a repeat visit.

With so many dining options in Ajijic, this is a must. A tastefully decorated small little gem of a place. The back patio is ideal for an early breakfast. Attentive service and good food.

It is located right across the street from the church and is spic and span. The menu is good and they serve other meals as well as breakfast. Doug, the owner, will do his best to make your meal an enjoyable one and besides that, he is just a nice guy. Enjoy

We enjoyed one of the best Salmon dinners we have ever had, with delicious wine, and returned for lunch twice during the week we were in Ajijic. Also, the owners were so friendly and informative.
