Absolutely over the top. Fine dining for four people all for less than $40.00 a couple, drinks included.

The room is wonderfully appointed and the entertainment, contemporary flamenco dancing, was suberb.

The service matched the food, great!

I highly recommend this Ajijic treasure.

Ninette's has moved just around the corner into Casa del Sol. It's new setting is quite beautiful. The blue floor tiles are a color I've never seen before and so lovely they were riveting. The room is very high and cool with a wide opening in the wall near the ceiling where one may glimpse the blue sky and inviting mirador. But on with the luncheon, our main meal of the day.
Succulent, large scallops in a wonderful, light chipotle sauce were my choice as a starter. Andalusian gazpacho served in a thin stemmed cocktail glass followed. It, too, was deliciously different with bits of real bacon. For the main, I chose Coq Au Vin, far from ordinary. Chef Oscar is a master with sauces. I couldn't resist a chocolate mousse dessert, all accompanied with a nice Chardonnay. Portions were exactly right. If your preferences run to truck stops, don't go there.

Saturday night a group of 11 of us dined at Ninette's. We had reservations for 7 p.m.The service was deplorable. It took forever to get water, bread, and our drinks. We had to approach the maitre'd several times to get attention . The whole table was complaining. We finally got bread and our drinks, but waited forever for the waiter to take our orders. The waiter came and apologized for the delay and said that we would get our food in 5 minutes. We waited for an incredible amount of time and finally our food arrived. The food was good, but the service was bad. One of our party asked for tea and we had to ask three times to finally receive it. Unfortunately, our tips reflected the poor service. Because of our bad experience, we would not recommend this restaurant as there are many superior ones in Ajijic,

I have visited several time this charming restaurant and I was never desapointed. The menu is small with a special daily so you could choose between chicken, the coq au vin is good or fish or some meat. the portions are not really big, but more then sufficient...While waiting for your plate you will receive nice bread, but the chef should change the butter for a danish or newzelandes one, small detail but important. As most of the other nice places in Ajijic, full of canadian and american, but the typ of clients enjoying good in a nice place, at very affordable prices, we shall return soon.
