Location is good, and the place is nice and cozy. Complimentary bread was great! Food was good, although the combination of snapper in "salsa criolla" with "arroz mamposteao" was too tasty. Adding vegetables would have been a great improvement. Pork medallions with cassava were good and tasty, but bacon was not fully cooked. Some vegetables would have also been appropriate... More

The food is good, but the service was bad and the prices ridiculous for the amount of food. I ordered the seabass and even though the flavor was good, I got a small fillet with a side salad for $29. To top it all, they included 15% gratuity, disguised as an item on the list of dishes ordered, and at... More

Lola offers some of the best food in Ponce in a romantic setting. The food is consistently very good and very varied. We love eating the mushroom appetizers as well as the tostones with steak. The orange duck and the filet mignon are succulent.

After a week of traditional Puerto Rican food, these two Americans were craving a simple steak. We arrived at 8 PM and ordered a bottle of Spanish red wine, as a reasonable price. Shortly thereafter we were treated to the best Filet Mignon we ever had and a tender and delicious skirt steak chimichurri. The rice and beans were in... More

The food was too salty. I do not think I would go back again. The service was slow and the food was too expensive.

Really cool atmosphere. Its inside one of the hotels so it may be hard to find. Been here twice at different times of the year and its been the same both times, with friendly service and tasty food.

This restaurant, although never outstanding, managed to keep reasonable standards and stable, above average quality in their food offer. As a regular visitor we previously testified to that. Sad to say we are retiring our support. It has dropped its quality consistency to such a low level that we are convinced it has no redeemable chance. In fact, we honestly... More

The restaurant was nice and waiter was very friendly. Food was excellent and so was the dessert. The location was close to the ponce plaza were other stores were located.

I have visited this restaurant several times when visiting Ponce - and my experience has always been very positive. Overall, the food, atmosphere and service is always excellent! I have always selected the steak option but have managed to sample other entrees from others in our group - and every dish was well prepared, fresh and delicious! If available, you... More

Great food and ambiance. Service was excellent. Good prices for the quality food that is served. It was eight of us and each ordered something different. Everyone was satisfied with the flavors and fusions.
