I ordered the mac-n-cheese and it was delicious , creamy and cheesy. The husband had the beef dip sandwich and it was well prepared. Prices are fair and they have english speaking staff for those of you who don't know Spanish. They are well known for the steaks which I believe now they are serving at lunch as well. Can smell the grill down the block:) Friendly owner and staff. When you are having that craving for food from home (USA or Canada) this is the place. Atmosphere could use a boost but the food is worth the visit. Cheers and happy eats.

Known for its big chunks of flame-broiled beef; try the “baseball” filet mignon, rib eye, or prime rib. Plus a nice little salad, a great baked potato, and tasty corn-on-the-cob. A go-to place on the main highway, according to locals, especially when Bruno personally presided over the staff to ensure quality of food and service. Bruno’s not around much anymore, but his daughter is now onsite and service is improving. $$$

Don't know how Bruno does it but the best steak in the area and his special baked potatoes are tops in my book.

We have a Semi Monthly Dinner group that chooses the best restaurants in Ajijic to dine at. We all are permanent residents of Ajijic.

Six of us from our Semi Monthly Dinner group ate at Bruno's Restaurant on Friday June 1. Two of us had the famous Baseball Filet, one had the Ladie's Filet, one had the BBQ ribs, tender and delicious, one had Prime Rib and one had Sea Bass in Garlic sauce. First the meals are served with a Caesar Salad with pine nuts. A very tasty and crunchy Dinner salad. All the meals are served with a large Baked potato with a chunk of butter and a quarter ear of buttered corn. You can ask for sour cream for your potato.

Everyone loved their meals. Bruno's is one of the oldest restaurants in Ajijic, only outdone in years by Manix and the Old Posada. The prices are reasonable.

You may not see Bruno around much as his health has been declining over the past two years. His daughter Vicky runs the restaurant now. She closed her own restaurant Vicky's Hideaway.

Bruno's is a favorite of mine, the steaks are great. They serve a fillet (called a 'baseball') that is just great. The meal starts with a fresh green salad and then the main meal of steak, baked potato, and a deep fried cauliflower. I hope you are hungry because there is plenty to eat. Bruno's is a great steak house! If you order anything other than a steak, the quality is often less than steller, and that is just a word of caution. The service is hit or miss, depending if the owner/manager is there, and also how busy they are. The wine selection is good, but overpriced. Highly recommend this steak house.
