“This has sadly gone downhill lately.”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

This used to be a very popular spot for dinner, but after some years it is greatly in need of refurbishment. The food was of average quality, some dishes being very good, while others were simply reasonable. If the owner is cooking apparently the food is better prepared, but we were not wildly impressed.
The exterior courtyard which has great possibilities has been neglected with the curtains and roof canvas needing a darned good clean.
If the owner would personally attend to these matters, Jardin de Ninette could be once again, all that it was cracked up to be.
Frankly some lovely exterior lighting with well maintained plants, updated table linens and a good clean up would do this restaurant a world of good.

“What a treat.”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

This past Saturday an excellent dinner and show. I had lamb sirloin that could not be better. My wife had a superb salmon with honey and mustard. And for dessert a great plate of flamed bananas w/homemade icecream. Reasonable prices.
As per the show, what a surprice. Marie Claire, a 16 yr old girl singing like an angel in a duet collage with flamenco dancer, Leonor. Excellent.

“Excellent food, service and ambience”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

We have been here several times. We try to make it a regular stop every time we visit.
It has never disappointed us. The food variety is always good, the presentation impeccable and very attractive, the portions are good and the quality has been consistently great.
On the few occasions we've been there for the live music, it has always been a pleasant surprise, excellent shows. I can't say enough about all of our past experiences there. I highly recommend El Jardin de Ninette restaurant.

“Consistently good food”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

This place had become a staple in Ajijc's dining venue. Good service, excellent food, prepared by the chef and owner himself. ask for something special and you will get it
