Although the restaurant has moved to downtown Ajijic, the setting is still beautiful and open. David, the Chef and owner, is a guy who's really concerned about what he gets to cook, and knows about fish like an encyclopedia. He gets the best available fish...More

We tried this restaurant in its new location. Early in the evening it was quiet and we both had fish dishes which tasted fine. However, the next day we suffered from upset stomachs!

Tabarka is one of our go-to places for lunch or dinner. We particularly enjoy their tapas but their fish selections are also fabulous.

My experience is close to what many others have reviewed recently. First, you walk into a beautiful courtyard with large trees and big art work everywhere. The food was pretty good. We had the tapas special. All the food was very good, not mind blowing....More

I'm not sure. But the tapas meal (10 or 12 dishes) is all of 180 pesos, and wine 50 or less. Pay with pesos, better for all. Best value in town.
