Even though the restaurant is considered one of the oldest restaurants in Ajijic, and owned by two generations of Mexicans (mother, then son), it is not Mexican if you are looking for Mexican food. Manix focuses on pleasing American and Canadian residents, as well as...More

We visited the cafe around midday on a weekday and we were the only people there. I believe a lot of the Canadians go to the restaurant but we didn't meet any this day. The meals were disappointing and we decided not to go back.

We have been coming to Ajijic for several years, but this was our first visit to Manix. Why did we wait so long? The beautiful dining room with fresh flower arrangements on the tables, large Mexican-themed paintings on the walls and excellent service made this...More

We went to Manix for a late lunch and had the place to ourselves for most of the meal. Hot bread with butter was served first. I ordered fish and chips and I've never had a batter that was so light and crispy. The French...More

Have been going to this restaurant for 12 years. It is consistently good - the quality of food is the best in town with generous portions. Beautiful ambiance - fresh flowers and candles always on the table; they offer live music twice a week; service...More
