Lola is a handsome restaurant, with dark wood and white tablecloths. The food on our visit was very good and reasonably priced. A bonus is that the menu provides for half portions of most entrees, a very practical benefit when you are traveling and have no place for leftovers. We had stopped in during an afternoon walk to check it... More

I've been to San Juan several times, but never went to the other side of the island until this trip. While Ponce was something of a disappointment--the church was closed, the Castillo was closed, the art museum was ... closed--Lola's made the trip worthwhile by itself. Just off the (disappointing) main square, We wandered into Lola, desperate for food and... More

This was one of the best restaurants we have eaten at recently and the best one we visited on a recent trip to Puerto Rico. We dined two nights in a row as it was pretty much the only think open both nights. We loved the food and atmosphere and enjoyed excellent service. You have a choice of seating outside... More

We ate lunch and dinner at Lola because not many restaurants are open for business on Tuesday. With all the research I had done, I didn't know or did I find out that most restaurants are closed on Tuesday nor did we find out why? Lola is a lovely place with friendly staff and great food.

Very pretty hotel on a beautiful Plaza. Reminiscent of old New Orleans - a little musty, dark, secretive, but inviting. Good service. Food wasn't to die for, but way above average.

We made reservations here and lucky we did -ours was the only available table when we arrived. People must eat quite early though, as half an hour after we got our drinks the restaurant was practically cleared out! Which was fine with us, as it had been quite noisy. Speaking of which, we were seated in the cozy back Dining... More

Lola or Lola Eclectic Cuisine, is an oasis of tranquility and quiet elegance in the middle of the center of Ponce. Located in the Ponce Plaza Hotel and Casino, which is in an historic building just opposite the Cathedral of Ponce, Lola served a very reasonably priced and elegant lunch. I was visiting Ponce with a friend from San Juan... More
