Four of us went to this place for dinner after it moved from across the street. The food was good. I was warned that they add a service charge so check the bill before adding a tip. When they brought the check my friend checked it over first and said there was no service charge. I checked it and found... More

Dear ACinMEX, I do not authorize the waiters to charge for service. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I will put a stop to this inexcusable practice. I apologize. Douglas More

This restaurant was recommended to us while vacationing in Ajijic. Their special dinner for Christmas Eve included lobster, duck and tenderloin, one of the best meals ever!!! We sat by the fireplace and found the atmosphere to be excellent and so very cozy, that we ended up staying there much longer than we had anticipated. We decided to return a... More

This place has just moved so we tried it for breakfast. Nice location and attentive staff. We all had fairly normal eggs & something breakfasts which were very acceptable. Will try an evening meal soon.

At first glance, La Una has a lot to offer. So much so that we chose it over all the other restaurants we have eaten at in Ajijic to celebrate a special occasion. We were most disappointed. Firstly, the table we had reserved with the owner had been given to someone else. The only reason we got to sit there... More

... across the street from the original one. Same delicious food ... have to single out the beautifully flakey croissants ... same attentive service. The new atmosphere is modern and warm. The terrasse is lovely and spacious. All-in-all a seamless move.

We stopped in one morning for breakfast. This was in October just before the move across the street. Great little find. Very nice menu, excellent food, good coffee. good service and a friendly staff. We need to check out the new place when we return.

La Una restaurant has moved from a small space to a larger one across the street from where they started out. It is gorgeous and has a wonderful new ambience with the design completed with a concept of Doug and Susanna the owners.

Since La Una has moved across the street, it feels like a whole new restaurant. it still has the loving, caring service of Susanna and Doug, the owners, but now it's beautiful besides. A winner of a place for food and atmosphere. Brunch there last Sunday with friends was spectacular. You can talk in the quiet atmosphere, and they don't... More

We visited La Una at its recently opened new location and were even more impressed than before. Doug and Susanna have transformed their establishment into an impressive, classy, yet warm atmosphere. As always, the food was delicious--fresh and ample and the crème brule' rich and just sweet enough. There is now a new bar with a fireplace and cozy ambience... More
