  1. This month of July, after Canada and the US, it is now time to do it the French way. Come celebrate "La Republique" all weekend long. Saturday is party time (starting at 6pm), Sunday (starting at 3pm) is family friendly both featuring special menus featuring food cooked with lot's of wine You do not have to be French, or even speak French to enjoy the food and the celebration, but if you dress like one, we will get a complimentary "Kir Royal". With all the specials on French wines, we will have you say "Oui Oui" with a Parisian accent in no time. (Reservations recommended). Live music with 50 years of chanson francaise including Piaf, Brel, Aznavour, Gall, etc.... Voulez-vous? The only answer is Oui Oui.
  2. “Oui-Oui”: Mark your calendars (or make your reservations): Bastille Day (known as 14 Juillet in France) is fast approaching. “Oui-Oui” will have a big celebration week-end: Saturday night (13) and a Sunday afternoon party (14), both days featuring French Wines, Cheeses, Cuisine and of course Live Music by Black Swan With Diamonds performing their 50 Years of Chansons Françaises show (Piaf, Aznavour, Gall, etc … (along with their usual blend). If le Pâté, le Fromage or La Crème Brûlée are your thing. You can't miss it. No need to be French to enjoy the real thing, but if you dress like one, we'll offer you with a Kir Royal.
  3. To be sure, I never said this was the only real chef restaurant, just one of the few, and a “delicious” meal is quite subjective.Though wish based prices would be great, nothing can be further from the truth: the standard practice is ingredients costs multiplied by a sliding scale ratio. Quite boring. What is not boring is that “Oui Oui” makes its own Butters, Pâtés, Pastas, French Mother Sauces, Crème Brulées, Ice Creams, Sorbets, etc.. with 100% natural ingredients (organic when possible). No fillers, colorants or chemicals. Sounds like a commercial, doesn’t it? The added costs making it from scratch run 50 to 100% higher than store bought. Finally, I do not think luck has much to do with anything. Our guests know precisely what they want and are knowledgeable enough to know the difference. Thought I respect your opinion, it is based on price only, not on the actual food or its taste, so we will have to agree to disagree. Peace, out.
  4. Thank you for your comment. Let’s indeed be serious If you had ever been our guest, you would have an appreciation for Chef Daniels creations. So “pricey” compared to one of the multitude of local eateries with a cook? Absolutely, as it should be. Just like a Bordeaux or a Napa Cab is seriously pricier than the wine by the gallon most places serve around here (we only serve the first two). Again, that is the way it should be. Apples to Apples: Lakeside restaurants with real Chefs (not someone who claims to be one, plenty of those around as well) are few and far between. Unfortunately, over the past decade the best ones left. Compared with the handful of Chef managed restaurants left, price wise, Oui-Oui is doing just fine. The most common comment we hear is "it is/was worth every penny/pesos". So, while “Oui-Oui” may not be for you, may we recommend trying Breakfast at "La Vie en Rose" (next to "Oui Oui") where dishes start under 99p. Eggs Benedict (the real thing with Hollandaise made a la minute) will be featured for Father's Day. In the meantime, for those who want Dad to enjoy a memorable three course meal starting at about 20 bucks, (25 CD) followed by pleasant live music. The first prix fixe we offer: Aubergine au Fromage: Crispy fried Eggplant slices topped with fresh tomato Sauce & imported Swiss Cheese au gratin, accompanied by green Salad. Pork Leg Fumé au style du Kentucky: with Bourbon sauce (Jim Beam) served with Corn stewed in Butter sauce & mashed Coral Purée gratinée. Sorbet à la Mangue: house made with Fresh Mangoes. That’s the first option (399p), the four other menu options (including fresh lobster) will be posted on FB, the next day or two. Thank you.
  5. Oui-Oui is also celebrating Bourbon Day all week-end long with Special Recipees.
  6. Our good friend Roberto Cerda is back from the West Coast, one night only on "Oui-Oui's stage. Reservations are recommended
  7. Now on Sunday, we are honored to host a special event for a very special little girl. Unfortunately, when Metastatic Cancer makes house calls, it does not really give you much time to play with. Little Fernanda is losing her leg today. She said to the Doc: you can take my leg, but only if you promise there will be no more of the Chemo thing. When we heard this, we can assure you there were not a dry eye in sight, so come on to Oui Oui on Sunday the 12, for Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner, and let’s give Fernanda a fighting chance. Than you. P.S. if you have items or anything you would want to donate for the auctions, please drop them at our Oui Oui & La Vie en Rose location (downtown Ajijic, from 9 to 5). You can also contact us at 766 1360. To keep our administrative/record keeping task to a minimum, we ask that you please keep a minimum value for the auction of 400p (20 Dollars). Thank you for your understanding.
  8. As you most likely already know, in Mexico, Mother’s Day is May 10 (and on the 10 NOB). Well at Oui Oui, we decided to celebrate Mother’s Day Friday, Saturday and Sunday, for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner . (please keep on reading below) Now on that particular Sunday, we are honored to host a special event for a very special little girl. Why this Sunday? Well when Metastatic Cancer makes house calls, it does not really give you much time to play with. Little Fernanda is losing her leg today. She said to the Doc: you can take my leg, but only if you promise there will be no more of the Chemo thing. When we heard this, we can assure you there were not a dry eye in sight, so come on to Oui Oui on Sunday the 12, for Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner, and let’s give Fernanda a fighting chance. Thank you so much. P.S. if you have items or anything you would want to donate for the auctions, please drop them at our Oui Oui & La Vie en Rose location (downtown Ajijic, from 9 to 5).

Most Guests stop buy, have a look at the menus and the surroundings, and decide if they want to get breakfast, lunch or dinner. Thank you.
  10. Why are Cheese fondues so popular at Oui Oui? It is simple: just like with all of our dishes: we use real, natural and/or imported ingredients (or we'll make it ourselves). Better! we make the cheese fondue right in front of you. If you know the real thing, you will not be disappointed. If you have not tried Oui Oui yet, that would be a great way to get you acquainted with the place.
  11. You asked for it so here it is: Eggs Benedicts, three different and all delicious versions for a great breakfast. This week only.
  12. "Oui-Oui"'s kitchen closes at 11 pm on Saturdays
