We love this place. Its our favourite restaurant in the lakeside area. Cooking classes are wonderful too. Looking forward to trying the new location at casa Del Sol.

The pretty garden setting and creative, and expertly executed menu, are among the reasons we love Ninette. The Tequilla Shrimp and caramelized vegetable are always perfect. From the pork chop, to salmon, or sea bass, we have never been disappointed. Excellent service, and always wonderful music on Friday and Saturday evenings. The restaurant is moving to a new location in July. Hope it retains the charm.

We enjoyed a wonderful meal in an elegant, sort of romantic garden setting. A local group quietly played music while our waiter efficiently took our order and brought out each course. We began with scallops marinated in chipotle and it was a generous and tasty serving, perfect for sharing. There were also many tempting sounding salads, but we passed them over for the scallops. Our entrees, shrimp in a creamy tequila sauce and sea bass in a white wine reduction sauce over potato purée, were excellent. Everything about Jardin de Ninette's was excellent. There are many fine dining choices in Ajijic. Put Ninette's at the top of your list of places to visit.

We always save Ninettes for our "occasion dinners"... birthdays, anniversaries, the arrival of friends and family to the village. We are rarely disappointed. The service can be a little slow - but hey - it's Mexico. We are rarely in a hurry... And perhaps a little bit of extra time adds to the love and laughter that accompany our meals here. Over the past few years we have sampled everything on the menu and our only regret is that the unusual, delicious and one of a kind calamari is no longer available. Seriously - it was so good... We really miss it. That being said we just had a birthday at Ninette's on Saturday night. Exquisite. Fun. And filled with gastronomic delights.

One of the first places we ate in Ajijic and one of the best. The garden setting is a treat and the food is of a very good standard. Everything is cooked well and the staff are excellent. On Saturday evening there is usually entertainment and we were treated to an excellent performance of music and Flamenco Fusion dancing by an group of local artists.
