We went to Lola Valentina first for breakfast and then later in the week for dinner and both times we were not disappointed. We were welcomed and waited on in person by Lola and she helped with recommendations, all of which were first class. I am no expert but I guess you would described the menu as a combination of...

We walked to Lola's on a very hot day. We were greeted immediately on entry and offered one of their Watermelon drinks that was extremely refreshing. My wife had the excellent chicken tacos and I had a fruit smoothie that awesome. We returned the next day for dinner to celebrate our anniversary, the service was excellent. I highly recommend.

We just had our second breakfast here and it was a stunner. The food was way over the top. The owner is a delightful person with a fascinating story. We will definitely be eating here often.

We stayed at the Ixchel beach hotel, which is a block or two from Lola Valentina, and were therefore very fortunate to stumble upon it while walking around souvenir shopping. It has a cute, open-air design, and a unique vegan/vegetarian-meets-Mexican style menu. The owner is a very friendly woman originally from the States, and she serves you with nothing less... More
