Reviewed December 17, 2012

When owner/chef is there food is outstanding. Excellent fish dishes. Service is friendly but slow. Nice garden setting.

“Wow”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

Not what you'd expect in a town of 10,000 people. Perhaps the best pork chops (crusted with coffee and with bourbon sauce) I've had in more than a year, and my wife had lamb she was stunned by. Great flaminco (it was Saturday). Small, intimate, garden setting.

“Beautiful food & tasty, too!”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

OK I finally ate here! and it was terrific. I ate coffee crusted pork chops and they were amazing. Fellow diners ate the lamb which one (from Scotland and she loves her lamb) said it was the best lamb she'd ever eaten. The staff were great...even making a special request for candles in the dessert for a special birthday for one of our friends. I wouldn't say it's the #2 restaurant in Ajijic (for sure, Number Four is the finest restaurant in town...) because in my opinion, Go was better atmosphere and food (and Gossips was better food even though it's a lunch place) but Ninette's was certainly good food.

“Small selection, great food.”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

This place is a little garden restaurant with outstanding food. They combine nice little touches like complementary amuse-bouche with attentive service and perfecty prepared entrees. Don't miss this place.

“Fantastic place for a light dinner”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

What an amazing menu! We had gone out for lunch and weren't particularly hungry.... but the menu at Ninette's is perfect for a small dinner where you can savour the flavours. We went there on a Saturday night and saw live music and flamenco dancing. Great atmosphere, service and food :)
