We like going to the Hacienda del Lago as the setting is truly magical. It is a newly renovated hacienda with three ultra luxurious private suites. All suites have high end finishes and fabulous linens.
They also served lunch and dinner and a very special Sunday Brunch. When we found out the Hacienda was no longer serving dinner we were disappointed as we knew we would miss the outstanding ambience.
Recently a very popular restaurant from Guadalajara opened in the Hacienda called Pierrot au Lac.
Their menu is classic French cuisine with starters of escargots, French onion soup, pate de foie gras, ceviche, salmon endive salad and spinach salad. The main courses include lamb, filet of beef, shrimp, tuna, duck and ravioli all prepared in the classic French styles.
There are several good desserts including the traditional Tarte Tatin.
Also the wine list is extensive.
The Hacienda del Lago is located in downtown Ajijic, on Privada Ocampo # 1. Tel. 01 334 170 3523. Their email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org – web site: www.haciendadellagoajijic.com and the owner of the Hacienda is Tony Bishop.
Pierrot au Lac is open also for lunch and you can go the web site to find out the specials of the week.
We are very happy Pierrot au Lac has opened in the Hacienda as the garden is a wonderful place to enjoy a gourmet meal. The lights are beautiful and the staff is friendly and competent. The tables are far apart which ensures privacy.
The Hacienda also has a facebook page which is Hacienda Ajijicc Lake Boutique Hotel & Restaurant. You can also check menus, book a room or the restaurant on the facebook page.
Tell Tony we sent you and Buen Provecho!
