By far my favorite is the Shepherds Pie and the corn bread is the BEST I've had since mom used to make it for me. The wait-staff are extremely polite and right there to help you. I really enjoy sitting outside along the Carretera - it's a busy street and so much happening! I have eaten there several times during... More

We had an appointment in Ajijic. On completion we went to Gossips. The food is wonderful. I had the beer battered tilapia. It came with fries or a salad. I chose the fries. (Fish and chips with malt vinegar) Yum. My husband had pulled pork. His appetizer was Oysters that came with four different toppings ... delicious. The margaritas are... More

I found the food alitte to greasy for my taste. Setting out on the street was not at all pleasant car and truck exhaust over powered my meal.

Great salads. Their cajun fries are super delicious... Had a daily special once... eggplant with fresh marinara sauce. It was tender and so delicious ...I only wish it was on their menu permanently! Shephards pie was good, but way too heavy on the salt. Waiters are attentive.

I heard about Gossips before I even thought about moving to Ajijic...and once I tried it,I knew why I had been told about it...The food is extraordinary....The owner worked with Paul Prudhomme at KPaul's in New Orleans, and when you finish your first meal at Gossips, you will be planning your next visit....Excellent Gumbo, unique preparation of salmon, mouthwatering ribs,...

Who would have thought that a little tiny restaurant on a street corner where tables are on the sidewalk would have such awesomely great tasting food? Believe it! The servers are very friendly and the food was absolutely delicious! I had deep fried salmon (never had it deep fried before) and I was pleasantly surprised. The fries were also really... More

The restaurant is small with inside and outside dining and is located on the carratera which at times can be rather loud. The host is very friendly as is the staff and the chef is quite well known. The menu is New Orleans style food and is very good. The crab cakes which deliciously seasoned are a must. The French... More
