  1. Thank you Gringa Gal for your lovely review and to everyone else for your thoughts. When you have spent as many years in this industry as I have (over 50 ) you realize that listening to feedback both good and bad is important. I came to Mexico in my 30's. First in Puerto Vallarta, then Guadalajara and 30 years ago began coming to the Lake to cater private parties and then opened my first restaurant here. I have learned you can not please all of the people all of the time but that you do need to be flexible and adapt. That was the case when I opened La Terraza as a Mexican Modern concept originally. A year ago no one was doing that type of food and now in Ajijic alone there are 4 to 10 (depending on your interpretation of the term). I admit I like to stand out from the crowd and in talking to customers I had a lot of people asking for recipes they remembered me doing 25, 15 even 10 years ago. As a side bar let me say it is humbling to have people remember your cooking so vividly. That is when I began considering La Terraza Gourmet and going back to my roots in the California French Restaurant Revolution in the 70's. One of the challenges of doing that quality of food in a retirement community is menu price. I knew I could not provide the quality without raising prices which would be a deal breaker for many on a retirement budget. My solution was to give value with that price instead of the trend in restaurants (and airlines) of charging a la carte for every little thing). So the menu is a price fixe in the evening. You can relax while browsing the menu with a table appetizer (included with your meal), You can enjoy a choice of at least 2 of my popular soups, you have a salad course and then your choice of entree. AND I have tried to offer a range of entrees depending on appetite and budget. Gringa Gal the dessert is not included in the entree price it is a la carte since many of my customers either don't do dessert or eat lighter after a 4 course meal (many chose to share a dessert with their dining partner). My vision for La Terraza Gourment was a casual elegant relaxed dining experience different from other restaurants in town - a niche not being served. In answer to just serving a single entree I do continue to offer that as a lunch option all the way up to 5pm. I hope that this explains a little bit of the theory behind the menu and as always I understand a restaurant is only as good as the last happy client. PS Computer Guy: When you are as old as I am there are some days that you do dream of retirement; but I have learned after retiring a few years ago that cooking for people is in my blood and I thrive on the interaction of customers and their feed back (it is like hosting a dinner party every day). When I am ready to finally step down I will let you know 🙂 )
  2. Noe is COMING BACK! Last year our good friends Noe and the Classics made a short return Lakeside and performed to packed houses on two one night stand engagements. I can confirm hes going to come back this Wednesday May 29th!!!! This Jalisco based band plays a variety of music from the classics (60's & 70s), rock, ballads, latin & instrumentals, singing in both Spanish and English. Noe left lakeside for a new adventure over on the coast a few years ago. Noe will be coming back to town to be with family and wants to play again at La Terraza. So those of you who had so much fun Oct and Nov, this is your chance for a repeat! Those who missed it and heard about how fantastic it was, here is YOUR chance. Don't delay and make your reservation. We will fill up quickly! So put on your dancing shoes come have a fun evening with an old friend and enjoy a wonderful fun evening. Bobby NEVER charges a cover but you will need a reservation

  4. Whether it is Brunch, Lunch or Dinner. La Terraza Gourmet is the place to show her you care. Please reserve early. Seating will be limited
  5. May is almost upon us and I have been busy planning 🙂 Stay tuned for details and menus
  6. You all know, I am ALWAYS thinking of new fun things for my friends and customers... Here is the latest! Tuesday Crepe Creations! One of the staples of classic French cooking is a crepe. I feature them on our regular lunch and dinner menus and not only are they light and delicious but they lend themselves to a variety of savory entrees limited only by your creativity in what you use as a filling. So every Tuesday is a celebration of crepes from 1pm to 8pm. The price is a great deal and like all my dinner entrees includes your appetizer plate, your choice of one of our amazing soups and a house salad...BUT on Tuesday's only this 4 course is available all day. What do you think? I think it will bring a little fun and excitement to a boring Tuesday. No French Beret required to celebrate Crepe Tuesdays
