“Quaint location, great Mx food at super reasonable prices...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

El Azul is just off the carretara in west Ajijic...definitely walking distance from anywhere. The restaurant is scrubbed fresh and the staff are always welcoming.You can't go wrong with the pork chamorra special served with a great little cup of 'soup of the day', rice, veggies and choice of desert. All of this served by the smiling staff and/or owner. Combined with your choice of cerveza, this is a great little spot that knowing residents of the area frequent regularly. I love this place and I recommend it to friends and acquaintances. You just can't go wrong!

“A funky little restaurant West of Ajijic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

I had Spanish paella catered for 30 people and we had tons of leftovers. It was delicious with all kinds of meats and seafood.

“Great mexican food, very friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

A little way out of town, but well worth the bus ride to get there. Unique but very enjoyable food.
I had "Chili en Nogada - which was a poblano chili stuffed with beef and rice covereed in a cream sauce with pomegranite. Wife had Pollo de Cilantro - Chicken covered with a celantro cream sauce. Both were very good.
Service was great. the sandia agua fresca and limonada natural were both an added bonus

“Breakfast & Lunch are good!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Food is priced right and the service is friendly! Very family friendly, no problem with parking and if you wander in the back, you will discover an art gallery of sorts! We have eaten there for both breakfast and lunch. Good size portions of homemade food!

“Frida”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Just a bit to the west of Ajijic center is Fridas in a walled compound off of the main highway. The atmosphere is OK, but nothing to write home about. Meals are reasonably priced but what you get isn't really that great. We went with friends in the afternoon and were the only customers in the place.
The food is just plain local fare, the presentation is ok, service ok, but we can think of quite a few places we feel are better value for money within just a block or two away.

If you are in the area anyway and want a quick meal for a fair price Fridas is a choice you can make, but really not worth going out of your way for.
