We visited Lolas twice during our six day stay on Isla Mujeres. The dinner was absolutely splendid, from the fancy watermelon margaritas through the appetizers and entrees (curry shrimp). We enjoyed the brunch menu the best -- Dark and Stormy French Toast, PB & J empanadas, oh my!! The group of us split a few and ate them family style... More

This place was a special treat. I did not expect to find good quality veggie friendly food in Mexico but this place had it all.

Whether breakfast, lunch, dinner or in between, get on over to Lola Valentina's! The coconut french toast, paella omelet, curry shrimp extravaganza, it's all good! The cucumber margaritas and the watermelon jalapeño margaritas, and the mango margaritas... Get on over there. You won't be disappointed!

We ate there twice during our 4 day visit to Isla Mujeres. Restaurant is nice and clean with lots of options for vegans and vegetarians. Staff was friendly and service was good. Brunch menu looked really good, though, unfortunately, we did not have an opportunity to try that.

The selection of food here is great - they have everything from pork to vegan food, and lots of different varieties of food. I ordered the nopal tacos, which were a little too elaborate but still tasty. Unfortunately, I don't recommend the vegan chocolate cake, but the other food and drinks, combined with reasonable service, made this one of my... More

If you are staying in Isla Mujeres this place is a must! Great service and fair prices for amazing food. My husband and I went on a Wednesday night for dinner. We were seated promptly and had amazing margaritas! We had a peach margarita and a watermelon margarita, they were so fresh and had top quality tequila. Appetizer we orders... More

With our hotel just steps away from this beautiful restaurant, it was a great spot that intrigued and caught my attention. I quickly scanned the menu, hoping for a good selection on cocktails and drinks. After long consideration on which drink to pick (all were completely amazing and unique) I went with my gut with the Grapefruit mint Margarita. I... More

I've been coming to Isla for years and have always loved Lola Vs. This time I was very disappointed in the food and the service. The food was mediocre with a very high price tag. Dinner for 4 adults and 2 children with a couple of cocktails each was nearly $300 US. Three of the dinners were simple tacos and... More

The menu here is interesting - a twist on the usual Mexican- but with lots of choices to please everyone. Excellent margaritas- we had the peach- chipotle and watermelon- jalapeno. Good service and comfortable seating with easy location in Centro. Not a cheap dinner but worth it.

We started with cucumber margaritas, chips and salsa, then came the shrimp ceviche with a hint of cucumber, and the coconut shrimp, not deep fried and heavy, on top of a delightful bed of coconut rice. It was light and flavorfully delicious!! We have been here several times over the years and Lola... "Lori" has always made us feel special... More
