An experience like you;ve never had or will ever have again. You’ll be seated with 20+ people you don’t know in a beautiful back yard setting. Lolo will dazzle you with her humor & amazing ability to remember all the names of her guests. You don’t know what you are having until she comes out & announces it while you... More

Beautiful, intimate, and delicious dining experience. Lola and her ladies take great pride in their offerings and make you feel at home. We were there for the final night of the season and the food was spectacular. She even added a candle to my partner's desert for her bday! Can't wait to visit next time!

Great to hang out and meet new people (other tourists) over communal dining. Lola makes a big fuss over learning all the diners' names and it's clear she loves her role as hostess. And the food is very good for the location, better than most of what you'll eat there. But the hype, the wait, the time for each course... More

From the outside of this restaurant it doesn't look like much. But when you go there for dinner (reservations strongly recommended), it's quite a surprise. Lola prepares all the food herself with a little help and it's fabulous. You are seated in the back, an open air type patio, with other people. So, if you don't like to dine with... More

Lolo’s is an Isla dining experience. It is not just your average dinner on Isla Mujeres. This night we toasted and celebrated what would have been Lolo’s good friend’s 60th birthday. That tells me a lot about the kind of person Lolo is, caring and thoughtful. Caring and thoughtful is also the way L0lo prepares her food and treats her... More

Amazing, beautiful birthday experience! Myself, my husband, best friend and her husband ate at Lolo's on Friday night, June 6th to celebrate my 40th birthday and her 45th. It was an incredibly special evening and absolutely perfect. We loved the garden, the candle lit tables and the trees strung with lights. We brought a couple of bottles of wine with... More

Dinner with Lolo is always a delight beyond words. Behind her bakery are her courtyard, home and pool. With reservations at 8 PM, which can be made on Facebook or by phone, you sit at a communal courtyard table and are served a prix-fixed 5-6 course, broadly ranged banquet. Each plate is cleaned bare by the diners. THAT good! Lolo... More

Wow! One of the most memorable evening that I have had in years. I felt like I was in the scene from the movie "Chocolat" where Vivian (Juliette Binoche) throws a party for Armande's (Judy Dench) for her birthday. The festive atmosphere and the exquisite dishes were truly a work of art, not to mention the exquisite depths of the... More

I have eaten at her lovely house several times in the past and have always been amazed that she could turn out such an incredible assortment of exotic dishes in such a tiny kitchen. When we planned our wedding on Isla my fiance asked that she do the rehearsal dinner. And without hesitation I agreed! Lolo once again cooked up... More
