Consistently Good!

I came back again after 2 years and the food and service was as good as always. The fish tacos were outstanding and the mofongo stuffed with mero delicious. Service was excellent and we love the ambience. This is a place that I will be coming back on future visits to Ponce.

In the evening nothing of Ponce city centre, everything was close, Lola looks like a "buen ritiro". Nice place, air conditioning, good service no mosquitoes. Mojito is good, food is not horrible, but unfortunately nothing to remember. And quite pricy.

We've been many times to Lola and have witnessed the deterioration of this restaurant. On our last visit I was served a stale fish and a "manposteado" disguised as a risotto Appetizer was insipid ceviche, white wine from a bottle opened during the last century and the only thing worth mentioning was the Colombian girl that had to smile while...

The second time the chef made a mistake and added cheese and the server sent the food back. I had fish both nights and the meals were excellent, although the fish encrusted with plantains... More

This restaurant is part of an hotel in the square. It is on the old building and had tables both inside and outside. The setting is nice and comfortable. The service was good. The menu offers several local dishes but also fish and meat, not many choices in terms of wine and beer. We had a very pleasant lunch and... More
