What a great experience! Lolo is a french chef, serving dinner each night in the courtyard of her house / restaurant. There is no menu to choose from, just a five course meal that she plans differently each day. You must call ahead for reservations, only a dozen or so people are served each day. The food was incredible, we'll be there again for sure. Take your own wine with you, she's near the Chedraui super market so stop there first.

It was the best gourmet food on the island. LoLo is a wonderful chef, the company was great and the 2 hour dinner was so much fun. LoLo creates and experience you can really enjoy as it so not "Of the area". It was a great change. We plan to come back to stay a couple nights in her B and B. ALERT: LoLo is opening her bakery soon with all her wonderful desserts and more. Yummy.

We recently had one of the best meals we've ever had ... anywhere in the world ... at Lolo Lorena's on Isla Mujeres! The food was exquisitely prepared and presented, with five courses of culinary delights! It's fun to sit with a group of interesting people who you would never meet otherwise. One couple we met from Chile were so lovely that we all went salsa dancing the next night together! I highly recommend Lolo's for a once in a lifetime experience!

Like previous reviews, Lolo is in a class of her own. There is nothing else like it on the island.
We dined with Lolo twice on our 9 day trip. The first time, we were lucky enough to have her all to ourselves, the 2nd time, there were about 15 of us. Though we added 5 more at the last minute, Lolo is a professional and handled it with grace. Both meals eaten there were AMAZING. Her chicken leg was perfectly cooked, crispy and delicious. Who would have thought Lolo's chicken leg could be the best tasting food anywhere! I mean it, I am a foodie, and it was the best thing I've ever tasted. All courses were perfect and delicious. The desserts - fabulous! I can't wait to go back to Isla and Lolo. If you get the chance to dine with Lolo, do it!

that Lolo chose to live on Isla Mujeres is totally their gain and the rest of the culinary world's loss. Living in London i get the opportunity to go to some of the supposedly best restaurants in the world - none of them have a patch on Lolo - she understand flavours and texture and portion control. 5 courses of pure heaven - we started with a small humous and pitta, followed by gnocchi (now i hate gorgonzola but i'd eat that by the bucket load, then a gorgeous goat's cheese and beet salad. the chicken course was possibly the best chicken i've ever eaten!! and the dessert was a platter of surprises. Never the same 2 nights in a row, and as she was still deciding how to prepare some of the courses when we arrived she clearly cooks this well off the hoof... And what a host - cutely set in her own backyard, the surroundings only add to the wonders of this place. She provided some great after-dinner entertainment with some local fire-acts... Spoilt just doesn't begin to explain it... I'd pay 4 times her prices for her food - it's complete steal and anyone who visits Isla Mujeres and doesn't get to get a seat at Lolo's is insane in my books... (we're trying to persuade her to cook again when she visits london soon... it's just that good!!!)
