This restaurant had really great food, wines & atmosphere! Went with my wife on Saturday evening and to our surprise, not well attended. Wonder why?
Dining area is contemporary & elegant and table settings is simple & smart. We sat at the back wall next to another couple living in Las Gaviotas where we live. small chats. Turns out they are new to area. So, we had lots of advice and suggestions.
We had Caesar salads, prepare to standard expectations and our waiter was nice enough to bring me a side of anchovies to give my salad a bit of kick.
Old habits are hard to break. I went again with Arrachera grilled flank steak, medium rare over a tender thin slice of cactus! Added sides was a small tortilla cup of beans smothered with melted cheese and rice.
Because my wife and I were having fish and meat, our waiter helped us to select a mellow red to pair both meals. We chose a nice mixed blend of 4 different reds with 60% Melbec blended with Cabernet, Grenache and Carignan produced by Baron Belche, one of the wineries in the Valle de Guadalupe.
All in all, this restaurant is well worth the visit. It turns out, according to our waiter that customer flow is very well attended on Fridays and Sundays....but, Saturday are much slower...or, as the Mexicanos like to say, a bit calmer.
So, my thought is that the vacationing tourists are not familiar or will not to take a chance with Ajenjo. Just like me, not wanting to eat another dish. Next time for sure!
Very good place.
