Here’s a review I found on the web which is an excellent description of this great Ajijic  restaurant; which I thought compliments the below video of some North Americans enjoying a fun evening meal at the Nueva Posada Restaurant.

This restaurant is typical of the many wonderful places available for an evening out here at Lake Chapala Ajijic , Mexico… where the sun shines everyday, the men are all handsome, and the ladies are as pretty as the glorious flowers that abound in the area.

So, what are you waiting for? Come on down for a for a wonderful vacation and check us out tour.

When you must leave to return home your heart will  long for our ambiance and you will find a way to return to join us in the sweet life.

La Nueva Posada

The restaurant in La Nueva Posada hotel is beautiful. Inside it is dark and luxurious with stone walls, arches, and Mexican art. Outside it is bright and airy with a tree-shaded patio, overlooking the lake, surrounded by flowering gardens.

We called ahead to make sure we could get a table outside. It was no problem as once again we were eating at an off time. A very formal looking man seated us. As we were led through the restaurant toward the garden, I felt very under dressed in my shorts and T- shirt but once outside things seemed more casual and I felt right at home.

We were brought bread, butter, and menus. Soon our drinks were brought and we were ready to order. We started with the breaded zucchini. The squash was wonderfully fresh, fried in a tempura-like batter and served with marinara sauce.

I then had the beef tenderloin with a Dijon cream sauce. The steak was juicy, tender and cooked perfectly. It came topped with a Dijon sauce, which was a little lumpy but very flavorful and accompanied by carrots, cauliflower, and a baked potato.

Libby had the milanesa, which is a breaded beefsteak and came covered with salsa and cheese and came with rice. It also, was good; the meat was tender, the sauce was tasty and the cheese was abundant.

Jeanne started with the garden salad, which was small but very fresh looking. She then had the chicken fried steak. It was tender and came served with a large pile of mashed potatoes and everything was covered with very good country gravy. Overall, our meal was excellent.

The service was great. The waiters were pleasant but not intrusive. Our ashtray was never dirty and our water glasses were always full.

Because of the large American and Canadian retired community, the restaurant now has a comfort menu offering favorites from home at a low price. The meals come with a choice of soups or salad, a choice of potato, rice or vegetables, and a choice of main course for 72 pesos. The choice of entrees is fish and chips, chicken fried steak, beer battered chicken strips, stuffed pork chops, ground sirloin steak, enchiladas, rigatoni, quiche, and chicken ala Mexicana. One of the yummy desserts can be added on for 24 pesos.

La Nueva Posada is also open for breakfast, which I have been told, is as good as lunch.
