Last night we went with a friend to a relatively new restaurant in Ajijic, Lake Chapala. It was called Elegante and had come highly recommended from other friend’s whose good taste we trust.
It was delightful but not cheap. It is a very French menu with Caesar Salad, House Salad and Baked Brie with a rather nice coulis and several other items as appetizers.
Mains were US Flet Mignon, Fish, Pork, Lamb Chops or Wild Salmon. All beautifully prepared and presented with very interesting sides.
First you get the drink or wine of your choice and a delicious basket of hot popover type bread.
We shared the Baked Brie and Caesar Salad and House Salad and we all had the lamb which was delicious, tender and juicy. It was served with mashed potatoes with goat cheese and snow peas and everything was cooked perfectly. We feel confident that the other entrees would be just as spectacular.
The restaurant itself is black and white and, like it’s name, very elegant. There is an outdoor area too. It is small, nicely appointed and the food is definitely above average.
There was a list of desserts which we did not look at as we all had Spanish Coffee for dessert.
Elegante is located on Constitucion # 59 just West of Javier Mina in downtown Ajijic and the phone # for reservations is (376) 766 1066.
The service is very warm and attentive.
