My husband and I spent two weekends this winter at La Nueva Posada- visiting my mother, who stayed there for 7 weeks. (She opted to stay in pretty Ajijic rather than my city apt. in Guadalajara). We also made many Saturday day trips there and ate in the restaurant several times. Every experience we had was wonderful. My mother grew up in Mexico and speaks Spanish fluently, and therefore came to know the staff very well. The waiters, who have worked there for years, are incredibly sweet, she says.They just take their work very seriously. Moreover, they are dedicated to the owners, the Eager family. Judy Eager and her son Michael were incredibly welcoming to my mother. Their goal is to have happy guests and they are the nicest people. They also let my mother bring her 3 lb. Chihuahua, who is an angel. (They do not allow the dog to be left alone in the room, though, so do not worry about any possible howling). My mother stayed in room 109, which was large and had a pretty sitting area looking over the lake and a part of the garden restaurant. It was lovely. We also really loved the restaurant and the food! I recommend sitting in the garden area; it opens onto a pretty garden with flowers and statuette framed by the lake. My favorite menu item was the filet mignon, but the casual food like the burgers are fantastic as is the fish & chips. The chef makes her own tartar sauce, and the cole slaw is made from Judy's old family recipe. My husband preferred the Panchos- tostadas with a mixture of toppings. I think our favorite part of the whole experience was that the customers are a wonderful blend of extranjeors (foreigners) and Mexicans. The Mexican families go there for nice, long meals. I would consider that a great compliment to the Eager family.
