i left a very good review for our dinner but breakfast was very poor. Coffee not great, French toast was wet and soggy, couldn't eat it. Will stick with dinner and margs and skip the breakfast next time

Having been in 2012 when it first opened, we were eager to eat there b/c we had such a fantastic meal. However, 3 years later, I wouldn't recommend this restaurant EVER! From the overcooked shrimp to the day old stale rice noodles, to the mystery mole, & frozen fish sticks---what happened!!??? Obviously, you don't care what kind of slop you... More

We stumbled across Lola Valentina and it was a great find! There was no-one in there but we thought we'd give it a go and we are so glad we did. It was mid-morning, we had got the boat over from Cancun, so was just visiting for the day. The menu was mouth watering and the food was delicious. We... More

Most of the restaurants on the main drag are mediocre at best. This is an exception. The food is interesting and well prepared. The drinks are large and strong. Service is good to excellent. I go there every year (I come every year to Isla). Plus it's fun to watch all the action on the main drag passing by.

After an amazing breakfast and dinner on our previous trip to Isla, we knew this would be our first breakfast stop on Isla, and it did not disappoint. Aesthetically pleasing, and a pleasant respite from the busyness and heat of Hidalgo, Lola Valentina delivers in the quality/presentation of their meals. The pineapple ginger juice is an amazing way to begin... More

This is our first time in Isla Mujeres. I searched for some good places to have lunch and this place came up. I must say they're closed between 1 pm and 5 pm. We walked around and waited until they were opened since I wanted to try the place so bad (my husband even got a little irritated because I... More

Nice atmosphere, great staff, and some excellent food, all make for a winner. Some dishes were better than others (sweet options at breakfast are to die for), and the prices are Isla reasonable.
