Memorable! Delightful!

This was our second trip to Isla and I must say, a meal I will never forget. Lola was very entertaining and actually joined us for most of the meal. The beet salad with goat cheese etc. was so good! I am not a fan of goat cheese but this was mild and creamy. The gnocchi course was delicate and... read more

If you're lucky enough to hear and find out about Lolo Lorena, you best make a reservation to this wonderful little hide-away! Lorena is the exotic, eccentric chef of Isla. Her creations are without a doubt impressive and as well as tasty. This 9 course meal will knock your flip flops off! A must do while on Isla Mujeres.

A excellent dining experience. Lolo herself was a lovely person. As expected it's a tasting menu that she creates and changes as she likes. The meal is an event. Is you are not willing to socialize and relax for a long evening you may want something else. My wife and I enjoyed the different dishes and the company. A truly... More

Maybe we were experiencing an " off" night, but it was an unpleasant experience from start to finish. 1. We arrived at 7:55, had been told to be there by 8. Lolo said she couldn't seat our family together and put our daughter at a table with young children. Not acceptable to seat a family apart, especially on a holiday.... More

Second meal at Lolo Lorena's was just as amazing! Menu is carefully planned & everything (especially the gnocchi) was divine! If you go to Lolo's, be prepared for a dining 'experience.' Dinner is served leisurely and each course is meant to be enjoyed!

Had another spectacular Sunday breakfast with Lolo! Nice to meet new friends. Champagne toast is a great way to start the day. Thanks again, see you soon!

We chose lolo Lorena for our Christmas Eve dinner and I'm so glad we did. She cooked up a creative and festive 6 course delight. The food was fabulous and the crowd was so friendly. This is a " must-do" for your island trip! Merci encore lolo, on s 'est régalés!

This is one of the most interesting, amazing restaurants we've ever experienced. Reservations only, 15 people only, byob, cash only, AND the amazing LOLO. Really, everything is stripped down to the essentials: you and 14 other people are the guests of Lolo, an authentic food artist (and goddess) and her wonderful staff. No menus, no decisions, just course after course... More

My husband and I dined here on our recent trip to Isla Mujeres and it was one of the most delicious and unique dining experiences ever. The ambiance is amazing, the food is to die for, Lolo is an amazing host, and sitting in the garden patio with others who enjoy traveling as much as we do was awesome!
