“Must eat in Ajijic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

La Una is a charming cozy place where we had delicious meals accompanied with friendly service and mellow music in the background.
My girlfriend and me had a wonderful breakfast there and kept coming back again and again.
Especially the chilaquiles cant be left untried - never had better ones anywhere else!

Thank You

“La Una is wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

Four of us went to La Una for dinner last night. It was absolutely wonderful. The service is impeccable. The menu is packed with so many choices. Each of us loved our meals. My husband said he wanted to lick his plate. The table in the back garden was magical. This experience was the best for us back at home in Canada or here in Ajijic. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

“Prize winner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

We arrived in town latish in the evening after 20 hours in transit and many restaurants were closed. La Una was just closing but seeing our situation they reopened and made us a most delicious meal. Owners Doug and Suzanna are prize winners in our book. We have been back several times, both alone and with friends, and have always had good food and good service in pleasant surroundings. This is a small place and it is in Mexico, if you want an effete presentation and can't stand kitchen noise, go somewhere else.

“A little gem in Ajijic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

I believe La Una has only been serving dinner for a short time. Based on our experience, I very much hope they continue. This is a small restaurant located in the heart of Ajijic. We went for dinner a short time ago and were very pleased with the ambiance and the food. Both enjoyed the starters and our mains. I had a wonderful duck confit and my wife enjoyed her seared tuna. All the dishes were nicely presented. Wines by the glass were reasonably priced and generous. The only downside to the meal was the pacing of the service. We felt a little rushed with the delivery of the courses. I made a point of mentioning this as we were leaving and was assured by the very genial owners that they appreciated our comments and would be sure to keep this in mind in future. All in all a very enjoyable and satisfying dining outing. We will be returning without doubt.

“Best food in Ajijic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

We ate at several places in Ajijic and La Una was the pick of them. Unfortunately we only discovered it on our last night which was really disappointing. Anyhow, the food was fabulous, great presentation and fresh flavours. No mushy stuff here! The owners and staff were a delight.
If you are visiting Ajijic, make this your first stop! We will be back when next we visit. Thank you.
