I took a stroll looking for a spot to eat dinner. The outside of this restaurant was cute and inviting. I walked in and was seated at the bar. Best move ever! The bartender Elmer was awesome. He had amazing conversation and his suggestions were on point. He gave me a complementary sangria which turned out to be the best... More

We had lunch at Casa Lola during our recent stay in San Juan and we thoroughly enjoyed it! The Mofongo is delicious. My wife had the vegetarian Mogongo and I had the pork. They were both wonderful. The restaurant was within walking distance of our hotel which was nice. The service and atmosphere were exceptional. We would highly recommend this... More

They had all kinds of mofongo here. I learned that I will stick to mofongo de platano from now on. Others in my family also liked the mofongo de yuca and the mixed mofongo.

My wife and I decided to go here since it looked fancy and was walking distance from the Condado Plaza hotel. Staff was very nice and very accommodating to us. They gave us the view over the Lagoon. The food was just ok. I was disappointed because I didn't feel the quality matched the price. I got the flank steak... More

The restaurant was not busy, but since I was by myself I sat at the bar. Lou took good care of me. I had the Korobuto Pork Belly - a delish appetizer. Followed up with the Sugar Cane Spiced Tuna. Different - tuna is usually not sweet, but the sugar made an amazing crust and the sauce was a little... More

First night we were in San Juan we went to the old location of Ajili Mojili. I had been to Ajili Mojili in 2011, I thought it was also overrated. As we arrived to Casa Lola, I looked at one of the members of my party as they had been to Ajili Mojili in 2011 and asked to please go... More

This was the best Puerto Rican food and just best food I have eaten in a while! The service is outstanding and the wait staff very helpful. I had the brisket and mashed potatoes/plantains dish which was AMAZING! Make a reservation!

This was one of the most enjoyable meals we had in the Condado area. Great ambiance and food, and the service was great! Our waiter, Angel, was on top of it and provided great recommendations. We had 7 Potencia's Del Mar, Spiced Tuna (Excellent!!) and Mofongo. My only regret is that we didn't have desert. The Red Velvet cake looked... More

Without a reservations, we were seated in the Bar Area ( which we requested). We found the food amazing; the atmosphere incredible and relaxing. Our Server - Fredrico help us put together the perfect selections. Showing us some selection pictures on his phone. We had the Bone-in Swordfish and Grilled Shrimp (Large). EXCELLENT CHOICE!! We will be back!!!
