Yummy Dessert

I wish I had been able to make it here for an actual meal, but the vegan chocolate torte I ate here was incredible. It was decadent and rich and was a real treat. I would come back here again and my only complaint is I wish they were open more during the day!

Food was terrible, service was great, would not return if it was free....Bland fish, expensive. Should have stayed on the water and ate fresh food.. This was not that.

My husband and I first walked by this restaurant one evening while vacationing in Isla Mujeres and noticed that it seemed busy and also noticed the Trip Advisor award for 2012. After eyeballing the menu posted outside, we decided to give it a try. I believe we were seated by a server...it wasn't too clear but there didn't seem to... More

All the food was really good here. Ginger/Hibiscus iced tea - with or without vodka was really awesome. Local fish, great traditional mexican dishes, fresh guacamole. Good Service. they have fans going to keep the air flow and would recommend sitting on the outside cafe side

We had our best Mexican meal in our stay at the Lola Valentina. The food was fresh, service was also great. Be sure to try the shrimp tacos with extra salsa picante if you are in for a sting.

So we ate two dinners at Lola Valentina and one breakfast. We also stopped by several nights for drinks at the bar and to enjoy the chocolate empanadas (get with the ice cream as they are very rich). Not a single misstep. Service always great. We loved every dish. And when you tire of traditional margaritas, LV has a selection... More

I am a little upset that we only discovered this wonderful place on our last day. We had breakfast, dinner and then our last breakfast again before we left! The food is just outstanding. Extremely flavorful and unexpected. Order the Mexican pastry French Toast for breakfast, and be sure to try the Quinoa stuff Poblano Pepper for dinner --- WOW.... More

Had dinner there one night and it was so good we went back the next morning for breakfast. Fantastic meal and it was very reasonable priced. Highly recommend the food. The services is slow so don't be in a rush. Dinner staff was MUCH slower than the breakfast staff. The food was worth the wait

Stopped in after walking by it one night on Hidalgo and also from hearing about it on TA. Amazing cocktails, lots of margarita options... food was very "pretty" but smaller portions as one might expect and a little more pricier...

I love this restaurant! I was here for several weeks and came many many times. Dinner is fabulous. Get the poblano peppers. Breakfast is also awesome. Tons of gluten free and veggie options. Gluten free muffins, bread and desserts! Really fresh, filling and creative smoothies too made from fresh wonderful nutritious ingredients. This is really a great place. Free refills... More
