We had dinner at Monte Cristo tonight. It is located in West Ajijic just east of La Huerta Evento. It is now owned by the former chef at The Anchor and his wife Marianna. Angie who ran El Mariachi next to The Anchor, the beautiful store with decorative iron is now waitressing at Monte Cristo. She has closed the store and needs to unload the inventory there. If you are interested stop and see her at Monte Cristo. She will take you to the store and give very good discounts she said.
Back to Monte Cristo...the menu is very similar to The Anchor, with more choices. Hamburgers are still 75p. Many choices for dessert including different flambes made table side as well as Caesar Salad. The decor is lovely and has new handmade tables with wood tops & heavy iron bases. Outside tables are the same good quality with HUGE umbrellas. The decor is first class. They will also sell any of the iron decor. They seem to have a close relationship with whoever makes it. All staff were extremely friendly, Adrian who use to be at The Anchor is now there also. They were so sweet and gave us complimentary grilled asparagus and 2 yummy chocolate truffles. My husband enjoyed his Mahi Mahi And I would definitely order my Monk fish again. Both meals were beautifully presented. They have only been opened for a week. We live in West Ajijic and will be going there often if the service and food remain consistent.
We should think of having a Swarm there in the next few months. They have lots of room.

We went for dinner last night. The restaurant is very nicely decorated-very pleasant and nicely presented. We were very impressed.
I had the salmon - a little overcooked, and swimming in oil which I hope was olive oil. My husband's coconut shrimp was very good. He enjoyed the soup, but my salad (pear) had lettuce that was tinged with brown. The waitress was delightful and the service was great- but I will wait awhile before we go back.
