Highly recommended by our B&B hostess, we dined at Casa Lola for our "fancy" meal. We were told it was an upscale eatery with prices to match. Something must have gotten lost in translation..."upscale" was a bit of a stretch. Don't get me wrong, the place is nice and we were given a table at the window overlooking the bay... More

My wife and I ate at Casa Lola last night. The experience was unique and food was excellent. Our server, Dapphne was very patient and helped guide us thru what was best for our tastes. We shared the corn beef rolls as an appetizer and were very impressed. It did not sound like anything we would like together but we... More

Classy and trendy atmosphere, amazingly friendly service, and deeeeelicious food. In our five day stay at Puerto Rico we ate in this restaurant twice. It helped that our hotel (Marriott) was a few mins away. The service was absolutely amazing because not only were they friendly and attentive, but they will also make recommendations (e.g main dish-and-side pairings) and provide... More

I have to say, the experience was one of a kind. Started off with the hostess sitting us to our table. She was chewing gum and when I say chewing it was more like chomping her gum. Don't know if she was having a bad day or just did not want to be at work. Then, got into an argument... More

Had a great experience at Casa Lola. The waiters were pleasant and knowledgeable. The food was scrumptious! Worth every penny.

I went to this restaurant because it seem interesting, so I gave it a try. I ordered this plate in which contained risotto, pico de gallo , I think it was rebanadas de chuletas with a sauce on top and some crispy pork "chicharones". I may say it was the weirdest combination I've ever seen on a plate but it... More

Loved this place. The service was like none other. The owner/Chef was on Iron Chef so that is why we wanted to try it. Our waiter was friendly and had great recommendations. My son wanted a chicken ceasar salad however, the waiter was like do you like meat? You should try the pork chop. If you don't like it I... More

Delicious! Mojitos and mofongo. Amazing. The waitstaff is willing to explain food and suggest best dishes. Will definitely go back. The seafood mofongo is amazing and the churrasco comes in big portions.

cute atmosphere inside and out, and although the plates were truly unique, the food was good but not fantastic like we had hoped. For appetizers we sampled their take on tuna tacos and crab cakes wrapped in plantains- nice presentation and pretty tasty. For an entrée we split their paella, which was quite unique because instead of seafood it was... More

If you love pork bellies, you gotta try these. Sliced and fried and served with some kind of nectar of the gods. Just a few blocks West of La Concha along the Condado strip, this is an excellent restaurant. My dorado was a tad overcooked, but not missing any flavor. My wife had a skirt steak that was amazing. And... More
