Best Mexican food we've ever had, thanks Mamacita!

Seven of us had dinner here a few days ago. The mole, chile relleno, and the enchiladas were so good, we nearly cried. I've never eaten guacamole before, but wiped out an entire bowl almost by myself. Mamacita (the cook, maybe owner?) is incredibly talented. We watched her make everything fresh... read more

The most authentic chicken enchiladas & chile relleno I have ever had! There were 11 of us and we all loved everything we ordered!

La Lomita is a very small restaurant off the Main Street in Isla. In fact because of traffic flow to find. I had chilies rellanos stuffed with shrimp. They would have better if the poblano peppers had bee roasted before breading. The black bean soup was to die for. I will come back. They do not take plastic. Cash only.

Stopped in for an easy dinner as we were staying close by. Had some limonada and the tortilla soup which were both delicious and a very good size. The soup was also hearty and filling- really hit the spot. Good prices and fast friendly service.

My husband and I enjoyed a lunch here. The shrimp ceviche was pretty good - although watching them take out a bag of frozen shrimp and microwave it to thaw wasn't quite what I was hoping for.

This little "hole in the wall" eatery has the best black bean soup ever. Makes for a wonderful dinner.

We had a late dinner here during our first night in Isla Mujeres. The service was great and the food was excellent! We had ceviche, guacamole, and lobster. Everything was delicious!

We loved our lunch at La Lomita! We asked several locals about where we should eat in town, and this name kept being repeated, so we gave it a try. We were so happy we did! La Lomita is a little off the beaten track, so not overrun with tourists, which we like. The food was incredible, especially the chile... More
