We ate breakfast here twice! We had to go back for the stuffed poblano at breakfast. The owner was delightful and she puts her heart and soul into the restaurant. We stayed at an all inclusive but were happy to ditch the mediocre buffet and go to Lola Valentina. Treat yourself and go to this place!

For dinner we had fish tacos, grilled squid, empanadas and a really yummy salad with deep fried balls of goats cheese mmmm They also make a great margerita with unusual flavours not your standard ones- definitely worth a try. Breakfast was... More

We were staying nearby and were out for a walk and saw the daily breakfast specials - wow. The menu was eclectic, and our party of 4 each loved their order. The bloody Marys were the best on the island. Service was quick and friendly. I would definitely stop in again for breakfast of lunch. Wish they were open for... More

We have eaten at Lola's 3 times for dinner and loved it, but this was our first time for breakfast. The seafood crepes and the cinnamon roll pancakes were fabulous! The juices are freshly squeezed and tasted as if you were biting into the juiciest piece of fruit you've ever had! I'm not sure where the few bad reviews of... More

The menu here sounds very elaborate, with dishes that supposedly have a lot of ingredients, but unless you are a master chef with amazing taste buds, it's difficult to capture all of the favors your dish is supposed to have. Having said that and although I couldn't taste my food "completely", the flavor I tasted were pretty good

We stopped by Lola Valentina because we were intrigued by the watermelon margaritas and mojitas on the menu. We went back the next night as they are amazing. Ceviche was excellent too.

Dinner here was good, but brunch/breakfast was wonderful. We tried all varieties of their french toast, and each was as delightful as the other. They also make the best margaritas I had on the island - and they come in fun flavors (pineapple ginger, tamarind date, watermelon jalapeno, etc). Great atmosphere too!

They had a a wonderful selection of margaritas - we tried the peach & ginger, watermelon & jalapeno, and a few other flavors. The atmosphere was nice and the food was also very good. I would definitely return here and we did recommend to others at our hotel.
