The food here is average, but not great, and let's be honest -the menu attempts to copy directly from the outstanding Mango Cafe but comes up far short by comparison in food quality, attention to detail, atmosphere and quaintness.

We wanted to visit Lola Valentina because of all the positive reviews on TripAdvisor so this morning we went there for breakfast. We were greeted by Lola who is as charming as the restaurant. We were made to feel as guests rather than patrons. I had the coconut French toast while my wife had a Mexican dish. Both were delicious.... More

This restaurant is simply divine. We are foodies and we are quite discerning and the meals here are just spectacular. WORTH the trip without question.

If you visit Isla Mujeres...and you really should if you are anywhere near...stop in at Lola's! The food is soooo fresh and made to order! We stopped twice during our week stay in Cancun. The first visit was on a Sunday morning during a brief downpour where we ordered the Chai Pumpkin Latte and the Chai Latte with Kahlua...OMG, these... More

We visited 3 different times over the course of 6 days. The breakfast was our favorite. You MUST get the PB&J empanadas and a smoothie. We also really liked the Mediterranean Eggs Benedict.

We went for dinner. Then breakfast the next day. Then breakfast again. Then another dinner. The menu is so enchanting and inviting it whispers to you to come again, to try something new, to be bowled over by new flavor combinations. Chipotle Peach? Cucumber Mint? A roasted poblano chili stuffed with sweet potatoes, cranberries and pecans?! Holy guacamole, just go.... More

Ate breakfast here 3 of our 5 days on Isla. I thought it was reasonably priced for the quality and gourmet-type food you get. We went for the first time on the weekend when they have their weekend special - Cochinita Benedict. It was a great introduction to Lola's. The owner (Lola ? haha) is a super friendly lady who...

We decided to have a dinner due to trip advisor reviews and good location near our hotel. Menu looks great here, very imaginative cuisine. Our meals were good but nothing special, maybe my expectations were just too high :) Anyway, we have just tried an appetiser and two mains, planned to have a breakfast the next day but the place...

I live in Isla Mujeres, Mx and get the opportunity to eat out a couple times a week. I am a foodie so the spices need to be right and the combination to make it really special. This is one of the best restaurants in Isla. Lola mentioned that she was going to start making Pablano and wow, did she... More
