A must visit establishment, if not just for the incredible wait staff. If you've been there then you know, if you haven't, then a treat awaits!!

The restaurant itself is not bad. The food was good although small portions. The wine was not that great and served in very small portions as well. The prices are also a lot higher than their competition in Lakeside. The waiter was pleasant but would often forget things (such as bringing cutlery) or would forget that we substituted something from... More

Larger portions area available for quite a few of our dishes for our hungrier guests and additional sides are always available. "4" is known for having the largest wine list in the area, perfected by a well-known, top New York Sommelier. From inexpensive bottles (USD 16) to some of the most refined wines in the world. Our wine by the... More

Reviews led us to believe this was special. It was not. In defense, they were hit with an unexpected party but the service was a bit slower than normal even considering. Food was adequate but not 5 stars by any means. Ambiance is nothing on the first floor. Probably would not return.

"4" is the place for specials events as we do have quite a few indeed. While most are planned some are not, but that's not related with your issue. We are sorry that you did not have a great experience as the entire "4" staff strives to make all our guests' experience special and 99% of our guests love their... More

We are very lucky. Our friends who live here know all the best places to go and we haven't been disappointed yet. Tonight was no exception. I love the layouts of the places here and 4 is no exception. The service was wonderful with the only exception being that they try to clean off the tables too fast. They are... More

This restaurant is my favorite in Ajijic, It has a fantastic and creative menu, comfortable ambience and an attentive, well-trained staff. The owners Gabby and Yann always make you feel welcome and, sometimes double as a great musical duo, with music as varied and good as the menu.. Now they have added ribs to the menu, smoked for 16 hours... More

This restaurant has a fabulous dining area, nice ambiance, 3 levels, and could be amazing, although it lacked in so many areas. We tried it out on Valentine's Day. We were seated at a table with no napkins and no forks or knives. We had to ask for water twice. The service was horrible but the waiter was very nice!... More

“4” GM is in charge of running operations including staff training. It goes without saying that none of our Guests should ever been seated at a table that is not completely set-up and ready, as this goes against all of our operating procedures and more importantly, “4” philosophy. This first impression can, and so often does, affect one’s entire experience:... More

This restaurant looks more like a place you would find in the South of France than in Ajijic. in addition to the great ambiance, the food quality is superb. The service is prompt and the prices reflect the fact that you are in a classier restaurant. Although still affordable, I would classify this place as a definite Fine Dining place.

#4 is one of in not the best restaurants in Ajijic. They have true chefs not "cooks". With live music, a full bar and a great menu this place is a must go. But be warned it's very expensive (for Mexico) but well worth it.

It has been a while since I've been back in Ajijic and decided to return to 4 for another visit as I heard the menu changed and so has the wine list. I enjoyed my previous visit and was hoping for more of the same excellent food and good atmosphere. Indeed the restaurant has changed a bit, the menu appears... More
