John's List of Ajijic Area Restaurants UPDATED

| Private Reply

I am not a food critic and many of you may disagree. This may help newbies or those coming for a few weeks. Our Bi Monthly Dinner groups favorites are asterisked. I don't expect everyone here to agree as everyone's taste is different. Some restaurants are not listed because we (our Dinner Group) have not eaten at them.
