This restaurant was recommended by a taxi driver. Its a little tough to find as Isla does not really have addresses. Walk south of the church and basketball court about four blocks. The street looks a little sketchy but we never felt uncomfortable. The area and the restaurant add to the atmosphere. Don't be scared away. We joined a couple... More

Loved this local gem! It's a tiny little hole in the wall but had amazing local food. Service was great (and entertaining)! Highly recommend!

La Lomita is a hidden little gem, quite the walk from the main area where most of the restaurants are. The menu is mostly in Spanish, and the staff speaks little English. The food was great and prepared in the kitchen right in front of us. Everyone was very nice, and we were pleasantly pleased with our lunch selections. The... More

Good: - Yucatan Style Chicken: the skin was crispy & the meat was juicy - House Special Fish: great flavor and spices - one of our favorite meals during our trip Bad: the bathroom had no light whatsoever

We are so glad to have found La Lomita during our third trip to IM. We really loved our food and found the owner friendly and entertaining. We liked our cold draft beers served in the lovely stoneware glasses and the chips, salsa, pico de gallo,and guacamole were very good starters. We shared the incredible chicken enchiladas and stuffed chile... More

This place was my absolute favorite find on my most recent trip. It is really a cute spot SUPER REASONABLE and the kind of place and people that you want to see make it. Our server was hilarious and entertaining. He went out of his way when he saw us fanning ourselves with our menus to find a fan to... More

Located on Ave. Juarez about a 5 minute walk from Centro in a quiet residential neighbourhood is La Lomita, in my opinion the best Mexican restaurant on Isla Mujeres. The Chicken Mole was incredible, as were the Enchiladas, pork tacos and guacamole. The salsa they serve is hot, I mean really hot! The service is relaxed and friendly, the beers... More

The first time we stopped in I ordered the Chiles rellenos the wife had the chicken they were both very tasty and quite filling but I have to say that the beef soup starter was awesome. A few days later we were hungry for some chicken soup and it was the best chicken soup I ever had and it had... More

La Lomita was a great break from the very expensive restaurant at our hotel. Chile Rellenos were very good as well as the guacamole. We loved the beer that was served in chilled terra-cotta glasses. We also had two orders of burritos which were dry and two orders of chicken mole which was good but the chicken was also dry.... More
