We had a beautiful and memorable rehearsal dinner for my sister's wedding at Lolo's. This is my second visit to her home/resturant and she never fails to provide an exquisite meal and atmosphere!!

Dining with Lolo will be the sole event of your evening- seated in a lovely garden with your fellow diners around communal tables, you are served innovative small courses over a leisurely evening by friendly waitresses. We had 7 courses, including a miniature mozzarella, gingered salad, rissotta, fish, etc. that were very carefully and laboriously created by Lolo and her... More

This review is far past due since we got back from vacation almost a month ago--but not only is Lolo an amazing chef, she also has an amazing personality. She welcomes you into her home and prepares a 5-6 course dinner. Due to the atmosphere of her courtyard and timing of the courses, we enjoyed intimate conversation with our fellow... More

My husband and l dined at Lolo Lorena recently, and are happy to say that it is still our #1 choice for fine dining on Isla Mujeres. There were 8 in our party, and all were amazed by each course. The menu changes nightly, but is whatever Lolo decides to prepare. One of our friends has a food allergy to... More

This is truly the most fun dining experience I've has on Isla. During my stay I had 2 dinners and 5 breakfasts here. The first dinner had 21people; the second dinner had 11 people. Dining on the patio is charming with the soft lighting, country Euro / boho decor, sound of conversations and laughter. The food is amazing in presentation,... More

This was a return visit for us two years later and it is still our finest dining experience in Isla. When you make reservations you are asked about food allergies or dislikes. After that the menu is a delightful surprise and it is revealed to you once you get settled around a communal table. Make as little or as much... More

Lola makes the night so special. You need to go to find out for yourself. The food was really good and really reasonable. We walked across the street to pick up a couple of bottles of wine which you can do too if you forget. Finishes off with a nice fire show. Nice conversation with others all evening. Please make...

Every year we visit Isla we're always sure to spend a night at Lolo Lorena's. It's my favorite place to spend an evening. Like previous reviews have said, the food is amazing. 5 or 6 courses, each one a plate of culinary delight. The ambiance of her courtyard is striking. It's just so inviting and comforting. And Lolo herself is... More

We read about this on TripAdvisor and were intrigued. Our hotel, Casa el Pio, set up our reservations and we were glad we did. The setting is whimsical and elegant - set in the courtyard behind an old house with colorful decor and twinkling lights. One large table is set for the whole group and it was a ton of... More

First time in Isla and Lolo's kept coming up in my research. Decided to try for my best friend's Anniversary celebration. Everything was wonderful. The eclectic, courtyard setting to the beautifully presented and delicious tasting food! Lolo was a gracious hostess throughout the meal. And to top our evening off, after a long night in the kitchen, she and her... More
