Sure is nice to be able to dance to the songs we all remember and love. The Doo Wops play once a month and don't miss them. Lots of fun!

Been going there off and on for years, mainly for the music and dancing which is. Great. We don't drink so can't comment on the liquor. However, we ate there a couple times and frankly, I found it disappointing. Mind you, my lady friend is a great. Cook so, perhaps. I'm fussy. The. Restaurant. Has a good staff.

This may be our favorite restaurant in Ajiijic. The owners make you feel like you are one of their family. They have a large menu and a varied price range to fit most any budget. The garden view is wonderful and most nights have live musical entertainment. A must do place when you visit Ajijic. Just 45 minutes from Guadalajara... More

Food was good. We had chicken fajitas one night and pizza another night. The other customers were very informative about Ajijic

I have come here over the past few months for dinner and each time left disappointed. The food is mediocre at best. Wait staff were helpful and friendly. The inside dining room is rather dark inside, but the seating outside is nice. Would recommend this place for drinks only.

Been here several times... and always the waiter is friendly and somewhat attentive. Food, however is not very good and it's quite dark and dingy inside the restaurant. Marinated steak/bistec: 4 out of 10 ... not much flavor. Burger 4 out of 10 ... the french fries are barely edible. Ordered the shrimp one evening and they didn't have any.... More

Took my wife out for an evening meal. This place was 99% gringo's over 65 and we were the youngest in the place by far. The outside is very messy and a turn off and we would have never gone in other then a recommendation we had to try it. The menu was limiting, to be kind to them. Maybe... More

Service was good, and the menu had a good number of choices. The restaurant is in the village but a few blocks away from the plaza so parking is not a problem. The restaurant has a comfy garden setting and fun mexican music in the evening. We had a lot of fun.
