Great service, food and views

Our hotel concierge recommended this restaurant for its authentic PR food and good service. The chef is know for his "grandma's cooking" style and we thoroughly enjoyed our meals and their service. It offers private rooms for social gatherings.

Went to Lola's based on a recommendation. Service was very attentive and friendly. The waitress assisted us with choosing a great local wine. I had the calamari appetizer. My main entre was fish which was prepared perfectly. This was the best meal we had during our week in San Juan. Highly recommended.

Stopped in for an early dinner. Our waiter "Yuzzeff, was absolutely incredible. He was very attentive and listened to what we were interested in eating and made some excellent recommendations. The place was not very busy during this time and our meals arrived quickly. I highly recommend the Tuna dish as well as the Paella. Both are large portion dinners... More

Beautiful place with awesome food and impeccable service. This was a grand mansion in the Condado area of San Juan. Be sure to try some of their signature drinks,

Amazing staff and sangria! Perfect place that sticks to puerto rican cuisine! Our waiter gave great suggestions for not only their menu but also for around town. I wish I could remember his name but Courtney & Mardy from NC Thank You!!!!!!

Came to this place, as it was recommended to us by a long time resident of the area. Parts of it (the large photo/art piece of the only and only Lola herself) are just short of a drag queen's sequin-covered daydream (which I love). The food itself was quite good. The entrees came out quite quickly on a Saturday night.... More

I ordered the jumbo shrimp with lola rice, the shrimps were well cooked and very big but the rice was not what i expected... the entrees on the other hand were pretty good, specially one called croquetas.

I had dinner at Casa Lola one night on a colleague's recommendation, and would rate it highly. I ordered the steak with a side of sweet plantains. The food was excellent and the service was prompt, and it is right by the Condado hotels.
