El Jardin de Ninette in Ajijic, Lake Chapala
Last Saturday we were taken to El Jadin de Ninette for dinner by prospective clients which was a lovely surprise.
We had not been to El Jardin de Ninette in about a year and this was our first time at their new location on Javier Mina # 7 in downtown Ajijic just south of Gossips which is across the street from the Ajijic Clinic on the carretera.
Tel. (376) 766-4905.
We were pleasantly surprised by the comfortable ambiance of the new location. It was larger and very nicely laid out with lovely plants and inviting artwork.
The menu is much the same and we all enjoyed our meals very much. They have several meat selections including a very tender lamb dish and several fish and seafood offerings too. I had the Shrimp in a Green Thai Curry sauce with rice which was absolutely delicious. All entrees include a green salad.
There is a wide selection of appetizers which include a Duck Confit Taco.
The desserts are very good varying from ice cream and almonds to a luscious Creme Brulee.
There is a good wine list and live music.
The Chef, Oscar, came to our table several times to make sure we were happy and well looked after and the service was very good.
Evidently, this location is also a charming inn and they do have a few rooms on site.
We were very happy with the new Ninette and feel confident in recommending it to others.
We do suggest that you phone for a reference as it was quite full.
