We arrived at an off hour (around 3:00) thus we had the place virtually to ourselves. Our waiter was attentive and friendly, was good at explaining different dishes to my partner who does not speak Spanish. The menu had a wide variety of different foods, mostly seafood. My partner and I were only a little hungry so we ordered the 6 tapas. Because of the very nature of tapas some people will like some dishes and some people won't. I have had tapas in Spain and I think these were on a par with them. Good for light eating. The chocolate truffle dessert was excellent. I would like to come back when I'm hungrier and try some of the other main dishes.

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 from the sea, shallow or deep-water fish which he cooks to perfection or adds it to his many creative dishes. Missing just one of them is missing the opportunity to taste something unique. From his outstanding squid ink-infused paella to the catch of the day, every dish is awe-inspiring. A must visit place when in town! And... if you want to experience more of this chef's craziness you should try their new restaurant: Tacos Frida, just a couple of miles from Tabarka on the main road, right in front of Super Lake.

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.

Another restaurant that is hard to judge from the street entry. We had good food, good service and would go again.
