Had lunch there a few weeks ago ; had 6 friends I thought would like the view. The view is fantastic and the food far exceeded expectations . Salmon, Tuna, Pasta dishes all exceeded expectations. Service was excellent. The only complaint was the reservation process. This is the BEST restaurant we ve experienced in Ajijic area

We went there for dinner last night. They have improved the dining area immensely. Now it has a roof which affords everyone a perfect view. What a view!! A must for a special dinner though casual dress is ok. Wear mosquito spray.

Simply a lovely place with open air dining set high above Lake Chapala. The best Margarita I have ever had, and a lovely menu. The service was excellent.

We've been 'snacking' here for some time - only lately indulging in real meals... It's easy just to 'snack'; the aquacate con cameron is splendid, and the tuna sashimi appetizer is great too... but their meals are excellent, and we've enjoyed the pizza here on occasion. The service is excellent as well. But the star of the environment is the... More

celebrating a birthday at lunch but maybe too early for the restaurant staff to be organized. Some people had a good meal, I was one of the people who did not.

Where do I start? When everything is always perfect, how do you rate a restaurant? Whenever I want to show someone something nice, I take them to La Vita-Bella. You just can''t go wrong!

A place that cares more about their image than their food and service. Expensive dishes, but very low quality fare. The coffee and tea are something to be desired. They offer something only to say that that don't have it. The owners are very worried about a stain on the floor, rather than to provide a good dinning experience to... More

I ate Sunday lunch here and it was, hands down, the finest dining experience I've had in and around Lake Chapala. Tables are perched on a grassy promontory overlooking the lake affording patrons with a mesmerizing view. There is an ample variety of starters and main courses, but I was in the mood for pizza and ordered that along with... More
