We were told to be prepared to enjoy a deeply pleasurable experience that would arouse our senses. Well, the evening meet all of our expectations and more.
Your eyes will first appreciate the splendor of this luxurious boutique hotel as well as the beauty of the gardens. As you sit down your will catch the aroma emanating from the stately kitchen which will undoubtedly whet your appetite. Glancing through the menu, you can confirm that this is indeed a unique establishment. The Spanish Chef sense of creativity will delight you palate: The Prawn Carpaccio over risotto was innovative, and the Medallion de Boeuf stuffed with Foie Gras was as you would have it in a top restaurant in France. The wine list was distinctive (not the same old list you find in most other places): our Argentinian Malbec was the appropriate selection with our dinner. The pistachio mouse concluded the culinary part of the evening.
The impeccable service did not rush us, and we had the added pleasure of listening to the world-class live act (while sipping a remarkable Cabernet). This was the perfect complement for this refined evening. The bill was commensurate with the experience.
This place has significantly raised the bar with this 5 stars, sophisticated dining experience. While we hope others will follow that trend, but in the meantime we already know that this restaurant will undoubtedly establish itself as one of the top one in Ajijic. There's just nothing like it in the area.
