“Delightful evening at Lolo Lorena's”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

While on Isla Mujeres, we heard from hotel guests about Lolo Lorena's. We made reservations for dinner, the day before and arrived just after 7 pm, with our own wine.
The gracious hostess/chef introduced us to the other three couples and we dined communally at one table, in a Bohemian like, prettily lit garden.
Lolo explained the menu before dinner started and we visited and meandered through the delicious and interesting various courses. All were exceptional.The dessert plate was a sampler of 8 exquisite sweets!
Lolo is respectful and knowledgeable of specific dietary needs, such as gluten free and makes the appropriate accommodation.
Melissa, the lovely young waitress from Quebec was polite, professional and charming. We wish her well on her journey.
We truly enjoyed meeting the other couples, two from the eastern seaboard of the USA and another couple from Sweden. We hope pur paths cross again.
Thank you to our lovely hostess.

“Dinner at Lolo Lorena”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

I had the best meal and dinner experience ever, a few nights ago at Lolo Lorena's. The food and the ambience were both amazing and a lot of fun, I got to meet some interesting people! You shouldn't miss this opportunity for a great evening, either single, duo or as a group, at Lolo Lorena while visiting Isla Mujeres.

“Lolo Lorena….Dinner Extravaganza!”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

For many years now, the highlight of our Isla Mujeres holiday has been our dining experience with Lolo Lorena. So much more than just food….it's a delicious roller coaster ride for your taste buds. Eagerly awaiting each course with one being more tantalizing than the previous. The cozy courtyard of her home provides the perfect setting for a private dinner with a group of friends, or sharing a common table with strangers that quickly become friends. Lolo's is a definite MUST when you visit Isla Mujeres!

I've written a detailed report on my blog….

“Lolo's Just Keeps Getting Better!”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

It's hard to imagine celebrating Valentine's day with your spouse and 8 people you've never seen before, but Lolo managed to provide a wonderful experience where there were no strangers. Lolo absolutely outdid herself with the most fabulous dishes - scallops, oysters, lobster, beef tenderloin, foi gras...and chocolate, there wasn't anything that would have made this meal better! A magical evening in her garden with red roses for all, making new friends and feeling very pampered.
Treat yourself to the "Lolo Experience"!

“Lolo's International Group”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

Amazing food at Lolo's tonight for valentines. International group from Sweden, France, Canada(Montreal, Quebec), S.Dakota, Washington, Nebraska. The food was sooo very good. There were a couple items on the menu that weren't my favorite but with Lolo cooking and once I tasted, I so changed my mind. Highly recommend trying Lolo for one of her fantastic dinners and meeting new friends.
