Great coconut shrimp

We make it a point to eat lunch at Lol-Ha at least once every trip - the coconumt shrimp is fantastic - almost as good as the people watching from the main floor!

Well a little late and the calender allows only back to June 2011, but we were there Last March in 2011 and several trips prior. We alway's make it a point to stop at the Lo Ha, especially after snorkeling and grab a great lunch and a few cold drinks. In my opinion they have some of the best if... More

Thank you for your great comments! Our Margaritas go back to 1984 when we first took over the bar and we had a great bartender! He made amazing Margaritas that became famous fast, so when he left, we wanted to continue with the same great Margaritas! I am glad you enjoyed them and the food!

We went twice. First meal was okay - did the burger thing BUT the 2nd time we had pizza and it was fantastic. I live in an Italian neighbourhood and Lol-Ha's pizza was better than most here in my city. Thin crispy crust, the toppings were beyond generous and the real thing - no fake or low grade cheese/meats. Very... More

That's the sound of me, sitting on the veranda of Lol-Ha Restaurant last night, feeling the cool ocean breeze of Akumal Bay come in between the giant, dark timbers supporting the thatch roof. Watching the fishing boats rocking a hundred meters out, the aqua waves rolling past the swimmers as they exited the water at the end of the day.... More
