Hacienda del Lago Happenings and new menu

Recommended Posts

With the ever changing exchange rates we have found it increasingly complicated for many of our American and Canadian Clients to do a quick calculation of prices, so we decided to try to make this less taxing. Our new menu features the peso price as well as the prices in US dollars and Canadian dollars. Granted these are estimated based on Exchange rates from the first of the month, but we hope this will help. While we, along with other restaurants in the area, have seen as much as a 40% food cost increase in the past year due to the strong dollar, we continue to do our best to not pass that along to the customers and hope that in the long run prices costs will start to come back down, though not likely.

Our full menu is always updated on our website on our website

This is our favorite place to dine and we always try to get our out of town guests there before they "escape".

That being said....it does seem that most of the ingredients are probably locally sourced, therefore, the prices should not be very impacted by exchange rates.

One more thing.....I really do wish the serving dishes reflected the ambiance of the property....not those sterile white, flying saucer type being used!

I guess I am one of the folks who do not understand the logic of a 3 pricing structure..given the "volatile" ex rate , if there is one reason to say it it Pesos it would be we are in Mexico....I am sure more fancy places in Guad , Mexico City and PV do not show 3 prices!!!!! Weird

Just to clear up any confusion. There isn't a thre tier pricing structure. As stated on the menu, website and this post "NOTE: For the convenience of our International Clientele, we have included prices in US dollars and Canadian Dollars. Please keep in mind that these are estimates based on exchange rates on February 1, 2016." Keep in mind that not everyone lives here or lives here full time and the peso concept can be confusing for many. This is just an estimate to help give people an idea. We decieded to do this because people are always trying to do the conversion, it's just to help them out. ALL PRICES ARE CHARGED AND PAID IN PESOS.

As far as prices. Foof cost has indeed gone up 40%. I was talking to several other restauarnt owners this past week and we had this some conversation. In some cases some basic ingredients have gone up 4 fold.

Here is a video you may find intersting by a Mexican Economist with comparisons of prices in abstos as well as some other basic every day goods.

Please do not complicate or detract from your great ambiance, service and food...you are going to incur more cost as you have to print new menus as the ex rate changes daily. ..After revisiting NOB, I think the majority of us appreciate the good value we receive from the majority restaurants in the area

I think one of the reasons, Tony, for your pricing is that perhaps there are folks that don't know this: many of your overnighters are tourists and not from around here, so the pricing probably helps them a lot. I also know a lot of people who are still working on the factor of 10 from some years back, meaning 10p = $1. Quite a shocker to see the actual value is more like $18p = $1, so soon we will be multiplying at the 50 cent level.

We have had nothign but positive comments from guests this week about our estimated USD and CAN prices. I can't begin to say how many comments we had about how help it has been for American and Canadian clients.

I also want to let everyone know that in addition to our usual Sunday Brunch, we will also open at 6pm on Valentines day for dinner.
