Probably the the best dinner we've had yet in Ajijic (during this visit!). Cannot recommend this establishment enough! Do make sure you get the corn soufflé ... it was out of this world! Zucchini soup was to die for as well. Make this a MUST for your visit. Don't let the word "Bar" scare you!

Manix has been in Ajijic for many years. It is an indoor dining room as many of the restaurants in town are garden dining. The menu is varied and good. The corn pudding, one of their specialties, is very tasty. The staff and management is helpful and friendly.

Not many restaurants can handle large groups and still offer decent food and service. Well Manix can. We went to a function that filled the restaurant wall to wall. From on- site parking and comfortable seating to clean washrooms - the basics were covered. Then add the quality food, better than average service, live music, and you have a winner.... More

I'd beef to this restaurant a couple of times a few years back and was underwhelmed by both the food and service. Three years later I met a couple of amigas there for lunch and we all ordered Rueben sandwiches. All of us were happy with the toasted sandwiches which featured a generous amount to of smoked meat, some but... More

We enjoyed a fine dinner at Manix a few days ago. I had the shrimp and my husband had the fish and chips. The battered fish was light as tempura and my shrimp were big and plump and a generous serving. We each had a baked potato as a side and they were wonderful with a big dollop of sour... More

We have been coming to Ajijic for several years, but this was our first visit to Manix. Why did we wait so long? The beautiful dining room with fresh flower arrangements on the tables, large Mexican-themed paintings on the walls and excellent service made this Saturday night out a special occasion. The menu is interesting. I wanted fish and my... More

We went to Manix for a late lunch and had the place to ourselves for most of the meal. Hot bread with butter was served first. I ordered fish and chips and I've never had a batter that was so light and crispy. The French fries and slaw were good as well. Two sauces were served with the fish. One... More

Have been going to this restaurant for 12 years. It is consistently good - the quality of food is the best in town with generous portions. Beautiful ambiance - fresh flowers and candles always on the table; they offer live music twice a week; service is excellent. Their signature dish is Corn Pudding --- yummmmmy!

Consistent, Good, menu is always pleasing and quality. Good for special occasions / holidays. To go there for us is quite the drive and we just do not hop into our car on a lark. It is usually for special occasions with friends that draws us in on those miles.
