So, some friends told us that la Lomita had the best mole sauce in the universe and they took us there top prove it. The place had really good food at very moderate prices (scaled down considerably compared to Hildago Street)and was lots of fun. I myself, was not a fan of the mole sauce finding it too chocolate-y but... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel staff after we asked them where we could experience the most authentic food on Isla Mujeres. We were staying in north beach and enjoyed the half mile walk to la lomita. La Lomita is a true home cooked meal. The service was beyond excellent and the menu selection was broad. We enjoyed chatting... More

We really enjoyed the food here. The beer was served in a ice cold glass and there was a good range of Mexican dishes. We both had the chilli stuffed with beef. This came with rice, beans, onions and salsas. I would be very happy to eat here again.

We ordered ceviche, garlic fish, fried fish and fish wrapped in foil. The ceviche and garlic fish were excellent, however, the other 2 items were okay. The limeades were fresh squeezed and were excellent as well. They were served in big glasses so you won't leave thirsty.

We showed up with 11 people and no one else in the restaurant. A guy who looks like he's out of a bad mexican western movie will take your order. Be as polite and slow with your English as possible. He is not a professional waiter and his wife and daughters cook in the kitchen, at least I think that... More

We came to this restaurant b/c it was recommended in lonely planet. The ambience made it feel like it was a hole in the wall place while the price was not. They offered us chips and salsa and charged us for it without telling us it would was not free. Felt a bit cheated.

We just left La Lomita and I have to say that the guacamole was the best we have eaten in 10 days and the enchiladas were fabulous! My husband had a pork burrito and said it had good flavor, but I know he was jealous! The serve Sol in an ice cold cup that they take from the freezer. It... More

Joined new friends at this little restaurant. All food was freshly prepared. Chile relleno with shrimp was delicious. Fresh quacamole, pico de gallo with chips and a yummy black bean soup. Tasty Margaritas! We sat at tables outside, literally at the street! Not sure how new this place is, but it was our first visit. We went twice for dinner... More
