Great food and dining experience

We had a wonderful five course dinner. All courses were excellent. I've even tried to re-create a couple of the courses at home (thai cabbage salad with shrimp and the Moroccan chicken and veggies).

After reading the reviews, possibly my expectation was too high. The food was good, but I would not classify it as gourmet. Nice area outside to eat. I really wished that our group could have been seated together. Nice staff, good service.

Our Valentines Dinner last night was the best that we have ever had in our many trips to Lolo's, her crew did a fantastic job, and the one hand Lolo in a wheel chair exceeded herself while working and cooking in the kitchen. Nothing seems yo hold her back from making happy and happy belly's. Keep up the great work... More

The experience is as much about the feeling from a lovely woman with a passion for what is her soul. Her passion is as much the cooking as it is the feeling she imparts through it. On Tuesday Feb 10, 2015 we tried the place with 13 other souls from as near as Texas, further from Canada and as far... More

I loved the ambiance, loved the story and some of the food was gourmet, some I could cook better at home. I really wanted to love this place, but in the end, can't justify going back. Sorry, just not enough taste in the food to make it worth the price.

Made reservations based on Trip Advisor reviews a few months in advance of our visit to Isla on Lolo’s Facebook account. Did not disappoint!! The five-course meal was absolutely delicious! Each course (the menu is set and Lolo announces the dishes to be served that evening at the start of the meal) was perfect. Eclectic, fresh, delicious! We dined with... More

I'll start off by saying that Lola and her staff are amazing. The ambiance and guests were also wonderful. I enjoyed my evening with our dinner mates immensely. The food on the other hand was enhhh. Not so good. First course - beet and apple salad. The beets were undercooked and overall the salad was pretty blah. Second course -... More

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... 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.
