We have always enjoyed a dinner at this restaurant. - great outdoor ambience or cosy indoor seating in front of a fireplace. Yves has a varied menu including chicken livers with bacon, fajitas, fish etc and he ends the evening with a complimentary Irish Cream...dessert drink. The donkeys on the property are an attraction. He offers breakfast, lunch and dinner - go and enjoy.More

The garden setting with pool and rescue animals is simply lovely. All in my party loved the food, and it looked lovely. As a vegan, I found the menu lacking. Just want vegans to be aware, as TripAdvisor listed it as a top vegan-friendly restaurant.

Unfortunately the food has never agreed with my stomach at Yves but we absolutely love sitting in the nice garden and enjoying the wide array of drinks they offer. A big fan of the Cadillac margarita which I can have two of and be totally...smashed. We also absolutely love Yves and his animals. He must have the biggest heart in Ajijic.More

Until recently we had only eaten lunch here, which theRuben sandwiches and Taco salad was HUGE and delicious. The location is so pretty that we decided to meet friends for breakfast. Today we returned because the food is yummy and ample! The coffee is excellent...as opposed to several experiences we have had where is was rather watery! Yve is an excellent host and offers many items that are not available anywhere lakeside that we know of.More

The food was excellent, good wine (from Chile’). Wonderful service. We had dinner one eve & because it had gotten dark before we left, Yves insisted! on driving us the 2 blocks to our hotel (2 >60 ladies). We had breakfast there another day &...it was very good. You can eat indoor or outside - we chose outside. It’s not high class, but clean & comfortable. In general, we found the food, service & prices excellent at all restaurants we visited in Ajijic.More

We have been to Yve's many times. We are now getting take out and eating at home during the stay at home orders in Jalisco with no dining in at restaurants. In normal times it is enjoyable to dine outside by the pool with flowers,...birds, and burros. The staff are all pleasant and well trained. We like the ribeye steaks which comes with a salad bar, potato and vegetables. Yve is a charming host.More

My husband really enjoyed his Shrimp Fajitas...Shrimp cooked perfectly.. Loaded with onions, peppers & a side of very good guacamole..and hot corn tortillas.. I had Shrimp Caesar Salad..Shrimp again cooked to perfection..Had dressing on the side..Seemed to be quite a bit of vinegar in it?...The Parmesan Cheese was also did not appear to be freshly grated..unless it was dry cheese to begin with.. It was an enjoyable late lunch..and wait staff were pleasant & friendly..More

This is a really classy place with a family atmosphere. Yves was delightful and visiting his burros was a plus. The food was excellent. My husband had the Aztec taco soup, which was superb. He also had a shrimp Caesar Salad which was delicious and...very fresh. My cheese quesadilla with guacamole was definitely something to go back for. It is very popular amongst the local ex-pat population and I can see why. Ambience, good food, friendly staff (yes English is spoken), There is a salad bar for the bigger entrees as well.More

There is not a lot of variety on the breakfast menu. Just the standard omelette, eggs & chilaquiles. With my omelette I got 2 Strips of bacon and one potato cake that looks like the ones you buy frozen at the grocery store. My mushroom...omelette was good and the coffee refills kept coming.More
