“Nice Ambiance”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

This was my first foray into the Chapala dining scene and I enjoyed being able to sit in the lovely courtyard. The service was attentive and the food decent, but nothing to write home about.

“Ajijic Great”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

Having recently settled in Ajijic, we're just getting familiar with the many really fine restaurants close by. Yves has quickly become a favorite with its wonderful food, relaxing outdoor seating and great service. When you visit, don't be surprised when Yves stops by your table and personally makes sure you are delighted. Oh, and the Sea Bass... Soooo, soooo tasty! Yves is located on the south side of the carretara just as you enter Rancho del Oro a mile or so west of the village.

“We'll be back”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

We would have eaten here several times if we could have found it! Yves needs to update his website because he has relocated from lakeside to a house on the west side carretera. Outdoor seating is next to a pool and they place candelarias all around the garden at dusk; it's a lovely setting. There's a great salad bar, the entrees are delicious, and the margaritas are killer. A varied, international menu with nice desserts that we had no room for them after our great meal! His white donkey, which usually grazes in front, is famous around town.

“Home away from home.”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Oh how I love Yves restaurant - and Yves himself! This is a restaurant where you can feel comfortable and relaxed while you eat your meal. I loved it when it was on the beach, and I love it now that it has moved up to west Ajijic even though the service is a little slower while they work the kinks out of their new kitchen. The food is great, and whether you are dining solo or with a group, the staff is always friendly and courteous.

Sadly I don't have anything nice to say about our experience here. There were no high chairs, it took over 40 minutes to get my food and they really weren't busy. The fountain and lights in the outside garden is my only positive feedback. Won't be returning next time around.
