Came here on our 1st night in Isla. We ordered Margaritas and desserts and it was all delicious. They only accept cash so we couldn't order more. It's on Hildago St so you can walk around to bars and shops.

I had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Lola and she is a beautiful soul! The woman has done everything and is VERY interesting! Her restaurant is a one of a kind on the island and has an amazing atmosphere. Her food blew me away! From her fresh watermelon juice, to berry blasting smoothies, to her pan seared snapper with amazing... More

We went to Lola Valentina first for breakfast and then later in the week for dinner and both times we were not disappointed. We were welcomed and waited on in person by Lola and she helped with recommendations, all of which were first class. I am no expert but I guess you would described the menu as a combination of...

We walked to Lola's on a very hot day. We were greeted immediately on entry and offered one of their Watermelon drinks that was extremely refreshing. My wife had the excellent chicken tacos and I had a fruit smoothie that awesome. We returned the next day for dinner to celebrate our anniversary, the service was excellent. I highly recommend.

We just had our second breakfast here and it was a stunner. The food was way over the top. The owner is a delightful person with a fascinating story. We will definitely be eating here often.

We stayed at the Ixchel beach hotel, which is a block or two from Lola Valentina, and were therefore very fortunate to stumble upon it while walking around souvenir shopping. It has a cute, open-air design, and a unique vegan/vegetarian-meets-Mexican style menu. The owner is a very friendly woman originally from the States, and she serves you with nothing less... More
