Awesome in every sense

Delicious, innovative, food coupled with excellent service. Not much else is needed. The conchinita pibil sandwich on weekends is among the best thing I've ever eaten. Go here, NOW!!!!!

After 2 years of waiting my husband and I were finally able to return to isla mujeres. We remembered lola valentina's breakfast and dinner and quickly went back for a meal. The place has not changed in quality or service. We went for breakfast and enjoyed the coconut french toast and chipotle eggs benedict, which were both delicious! Then for... More

If you want to eat some very special dishes made from native wares this the the place to eat. The owner Lola is a great Chef who does some amazing dishes like the burritos, the pancakes, the seafood .Every dish has its own distinct taste to it. A must visit restaurant.

Ok, we love Isla. It's quant and indigenous and not over-populated with tourist. However, when the word about this restaurant truly gets out.... the island may become a mecca for foodies. The menu for lunch was innovative, fresh and nouveaux. The cocktails were great as well. I had a spectacular salad with rice noodles, fresh veggies and perfectly grilled shrimp.... More

Nice restaurant right in the middle of town. I had the coconut banana french toast which was very tasty and my husband loved his arrachera and egg breakfast sandwich. They had all kinds of smoothies and good fresh looking food.

Lola Valentina is wonderful. We had yummy cocktails and delicious food. My husband talked about his steak tacos for the next three nights, and I truly enjoyed my chile poblano with mole sauce. When we visit Isla again, we will be back! The wait staff was very friendly and attentive, too.

We had a party of 11, including our 5 grandchildren. We had had breakfast there the day before and it was wonderful, so we returned for dinner. The wait was overly long, which we wouldn't have minded if the food had been better. The sea bass was overcooked and inedible. The same for the red snapper. The kids couldn't even... More

If you're looking for fresh-cooked local food with unmatched flair, this place is it. The menu exemplifies "traditional meets unique" and that includes the cocktails. The venue offers casual and comfortable seating, making it a great place to dine while enjoying the company of those you are with -- and often others who are also eating in the restaurant. Note,...

A great menu with a Yucatan influence on some of the classics. Had a dinner and breakfast here during our stay - the tres leches hotcakes with caramelised nuts and maple syrup is delicious, the fish dishes succulent and perfectly cooked and the breakfast hash bowls flavoursome and filling. There are also plenty of vegan and gluten free options on... More

The food was absolutely amazing and our waiter was excellent. Didn't take credit cards, but other than that, loved everything.
