Lola Valentina serves the best breakfast on Isla Mujeres. Try the seafood crepes, any of her hotcakes or French toast entres! And ask to sit in the new garden area. Lola is always gracious and her staff very attentive without rushing. Dinner is also delicious and every recipe is her own. Lots of gluten free and vegan options too!

Very good food but a touch Americanized. Wonderful service. Has the coolest margarita combinations. Beautiful decor and located right on Hidalgo.

Seriously folks, check this place out! Iit is for sure in the top 5! Had the snapper tacos, and hubby had the Tamarind fish. We shared the bacon, Apple, goat cheese guacamole. The menu is unlike any I have seen. The chef is very creative in the mixing of ingredients.....and it works! Will go back!

Tasty and good presentation. Friendly. I felt the enfrijolados (egg enchilada basically) needed more umpf. The habañero salsa I added kicked it up, but something missing. Yummy peach mimosa. Breakfast potatoes and good crispy bacon.

My dad and I ate here 4 times during our 6-day visit to Isla. The vegan Rancheros on the brunch menu was delicious -- scrambled tofu, black beans, avocado on corn tortillas with tomato sauce. On the dinner menu I loved the Caribbean tofu and veggies in coconut cream. On another occasion they also made me a tasty vegan version... More

This is the most under-rated place on Trip Advisor, by far it should be in the top 5 places to stop and eat at when you visit the Isla. The food and the service is outstanding and a reasonable price. I have had several meals there and plan to visit again.

We went for a special birthday breakfast, and ended up going back the next 3 days in a row....we just couldn't get enough of it. Watermelon mimosas, hibiscus mimosas, pineapple ginger (i think?) mimosas....you get the picture. Everything we ate was delicious, but particularly enjoyed the nopales (cactus) tacos. It's hard to find vegetables on the island; nopal was really... More

I've been here for drinks and appetizers at the bar two years running. The margaritas are fantastic, with fun flavor options: I got the watermelon margarita--my fave, as well as the chipotle peach margarita, which had a great kick. I love the ambiance here, it feels fun and whimsical, and a bit more stylish and funkier than some of the... More
