Salvador’s Restaurant

With the money being spent on improvements, renovations, a second floor Terraza and who knows what else, this looks like it is going to be a quality, first class restaurant with premium foods and prices. It will be a welcome change to dismal, dull and now defunct, Salvador's. Another step up the ladder to change Ajijic from small town to big time tourist draw. I think it's going to be a showplace and a popular upscale destination.

Good one Al, I get it.

Ajijic is getting more sophisticated. Look forward to seeing the finished product. Just like the new Argentinian restaurant on Colon is a wake up call for Tango; this one might be a problem to nearby Alex's Pasta Bar. Hopefully there is enough business for the old timers as well as the newbies. Restaurant scene lakeside is evolving

Actually, I am with a lot of others so unhappy losing Salvadors and the thought of going from a cosy quiet retirement area to a bustling overpriced small town is kinda outside my reasons for being here. I knew what we had here and was and still is happy to be in Chapala for the long term. I am way past hoping for future expensive growth in this lovely Mexican retirement area.

This is already a big tourist draw, both from NOB and Mexico. We do not need any more tourists, we are overloaded. The new restaurant on Colon is unfortunately part of a chain. I have found them to be uninspiring and do like the locally owned and operated. They usually have more to offer while not being overpriced. YMMV

I think there is little danger of small independent restaurants going away lake side. Favorite restaurants we love like Yves, La Terraza, Brunos, and Go have a big local following and support. The upscale restaurants will be utilized by the Tapitios and some of the Gringos on special occasions. But the community is changing. I think there is room for all

Sophisticated when they can not organised payment of their bill to the local landfill.
