“Very Good Restaurant”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Thor recently purchased the old Bubba's and he has made a huge difference in the quality of the food as well as the décor and fresh paint. A group of 15 went there for lunch and we all had different menu selections and everyone really enjoyed their meals. There is parking out in front of the restaurant.

“Excellent dinner at Thor's Restaurant”
Reviewed April 7, 2014 via mobile

We really enjoyed a special four course set menu dinner at Thor's last night. Chef Eric Cardenas outdid himself with a fabulous salad, tuna tartar, lamb shank and banana tart. The service was great and the six of us had a wonderful time. This was a special gourmet Sunday dinner. I hope they do this on a regular basis.

“New Chef with training at The French Laundry in California!”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

Magnificent! Chef Eric, from here in Lake Chapala---the most promising and amazingly gifted young chef ---and a very personable young man indeed. Owner Thor went out of his way to accomodate us as we had tickets for a performance at 7:30 pm---Chef came in early to make sure we had the best dining experience and would still make the show. Amusee' bouche of a creamy clam chowder with brioche. Then the most delicous salad of arugala, a crostini with pesto and a mousse of goat cheese! aah....a superb serving of the finest Tuna Sashimi with garni of watermelon and avacado mousse. The main entree was a lamb shank that had been marinated for hours in many spices.... and then slow roasted for hours more---melt in your mouth delicious with petite roasted vegetables, Chef Eric stopped by our table at every course to descibe his creations. Dessert: wow--a Brulee Banana tarte tartin.....

“Not worthwhile”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

The best thing about this restaurant is the owner. He is from Iceland and a pleasure to talk to. However the food is at best only acceptable. The French fries were dry and cold. the hamburger was thin and not well cooked. The cold slaw was watery. There are several similar dining spots in Chapala and Ajijic that are preferable to Thor's.
