“A great meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

We had a meal here while staying at Dona Lola Resort. It always seemed to be busy so we with no reservation we were lucky to get a table. There were many nationalities there when we were including Spanish. We decided on the 2 courses for a set price menu (can't remember the actual price unfortunately) which was very good food-wise and for value. We were given a glass of cava to begin which was a nice touch. Service was a bit slow but they were busy. We'd definately eat here again if in the area.

“Enjoyed Meson Dona Lola!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Came upon this restaurant actually while looking for another one recommended on TA. Decided to stop in and were not disappointed. The menu del dia at 13€ is unbeatable! Three courses, all well-prepared (husband and I both had grilled swordfish) were more than enough for dinner after a long day of driving. Friendly service was an added plus. We are in Mijas-Costa for a week - already plan to return to try some of the Moroccan specialties.

“Another return visit!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

We've been to Meson Dona Lola before and have always enjoyed the food and this time was no exception. They have a menu del dia up to 3pm and a couples menu to share up to 7pm (although this isn't on the board advertising it as we found out when we arrived at 8pm!). However, we ate here twice this holiday and the first time my OH didn't have a starter but I had the seafood crepes that came with rice (think that they don't need the rice) and they were very nice. For mains I had dorada in a pepper sauce and my OH had a pork dish and we shared a chocolate mousse (to die for) which came to €40.70 inc bread.

Our second visit was slightly disappointing because we forgot that the Spanish medium cooked steak is actually almost walking off the plate LOL!. We ordered the couples menu, entrecote steak with vegetables to share (it was huge) but although OH wasn't as keen on it being so rare, I thought it was lovely, it included a bottle of wine for €20 for the two of us! I had cheesecake for dessert and total came to €26.50.

They also have wifi if anyone wants it and service as usual was very attentive and the atmosphere was great too. We will go back next time for another lovely meal.

“Long Wait”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

We visited this restaurant recently, the place was packed but they told us to come back at 22.00 for a table, which we did. We had a lovely kir royale on the house and ordered our main courses - which was all we were having, We waited and waited, eventually one of our party went in to enquire what was the problem (we had ordered lamb chops and grilled chicken) and we were told it was coming soon. At 23.00 we were served. That is an unacceptable wait, in my view. A man at the next table told us he had sat down at 21.30, got his starter at 22.30 and his main course arrived with ours. The food was lovely and the staff very polite but that's just too slow.
