“Does this place really need one more 5 stars review? Oh well”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

I guess it does! Beautiful, imaginatively designed space with glorious view of the lake. Peaceful yet artsy ambience. But really I'm writing about the food. I had the simplest of meals, 6 vegetarian dim sum dumplings and a small greek salad. But oh the skill in those simplest of dishes! This place as put together by Pedro is memorably incredible. Can't wait to return this week..

“One small plate was plenty”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

I went o Go on the recommendation of this web site. It's a charming place run and managed by the owner who obviously takes pride in it. It specializes in small plates, but I had one - shrimp with fusilli, and was full, Excellent food.

“Another Ajijic Gem”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

Owned by a guy from Toronto who had 6 restaurants in the theatre district. WHat a creative menu. MAny assorted appetizers to choose from and if you are not adver¡nturous, there is a steak and potato. I had 3 appetizers to share with my husband (who predictably had the steak). A fab salad, a chicken satay and another veggie dish. I could not finish. THe owner is cordial and concerned over his guests unlike another restaurant in Ajijic that I have reviewed. The setting is intimate and cozy, like being in someones den. We loved it

“Go has class.”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

Amble north on Encarnacion Rosas, climb 30 steps and you will be welcomed by the best view of any restaurant in Ajijic. Gregarious Go owner Peter Palmer (Pedro) from Fred's Not Here restaurant in Toronto is hands-on, bussing tables, serving, chatting and keeping an eye on the guests. Go is the successor to Pedro's Gourmet restaurant. The ambiance was welcoming, guests laughing and chatting in English and Spanish. I imagined being in an upscale restaurant in New York city.

The eclectic menu varies weekly and offers a wide range of hot and cold appetizers and usually four different protein mains (pike or mahi-mahi, chicken or pork, beef and shrimp) that are country themed. The sauces are sophisticated and appropriate to the dish. Pedro offers a nice variety of sweets. Wine price was reasonable.

We love one of the little tables along the outside wall with great views of the sunset and the lake.

Our friends returned the following day for more sumptuous food.

“Great Spot, Unless Your Are Stair Challenged”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed are evening here. The food was very good. Try the seafood special or the chicken special. Pedro, formerly of Pedro's in the village, is as personable as ever. The lake view is marvelous. But beware there are 30 steps to climb so if you are stair challenged, this may be a problem. We will return.
