“Their food is very good and the atmosphere is excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

They have an excellent menu that features dishes from capers, steaks, sea food to good old American style hamburgers, if you miss the states. They have a beautiful garden that has a large number of beautiful peacocks, that if you want them to, they will eat out of your hand. Their prices a a little moderate, but well worth the visit. It is situated about two or three blocks south of Ajijic's main plaza, on Avenida Colon.

“What a pleasant surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

We went to The Peacock Garden during the low season on a rainy weekday evening. Therefore, we were two of only a handful of customers. But it was one of the highlights of our stay in Ajijic. My husband ordered fish and vegetables cooked in a palm leaf. Someone from the kitchen came into the garden and cut the palm leaf which soon after appeared at our table wrapped around a tender and most flavorful filet. My meal was excellent as well. The garden, the music, the peacocks, the service, and the food combined to make it a memory making experience.

“Enjoy the strolling birds!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

This is a delightful place in the middle of "downtown" Ajijic. The food and service are very good, but the main attraction is the lovely garden, with strolling peacocks spreading their tails for you. There are also unusual fancy breeds of chickens for your visual enjoyment.
The servers are charming and attentive. Do visit for a very enjoyable, different experience.

“My favourite spot in Ajijic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

This was my favourite spot to eat in Ajijic! The garden style outdoor area was lovely and smelled of jasmine and was very pretty. The peacocks and exotic chickens that wander free around the garden are a treat in themselves and are very friendly...especially when you share your crackers. The food was fabulous and our whole group really enjoyed themselves.

Great food and beautiful outdoor garden. Excellent friendly service. Good for lunch, dinner or a leisurely glass of wine mid-afternoon..
