“Delicious”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

The owner is extremely warm and engaging; the food was innovative and yummy. We ate there twice and will look it up again the next time we are on Isla Mujeres.

“Worst we had on the island”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

The food was way overpriced. We ordered fish tacos and a salad and were really disappointed. They were tasteless and dry. It was definitely the worst we had during our stay on the island.

“Best Dinner”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

Once was not enough for us, we went back for dinner a second time and brought friends. We enjoyed the laid back atmosphere and the Caribbean spin on most of the dishes, it was a great break from the traditional food on the island. Pride of ownership is clear, with this restaurant and it was a joy to speak with Lola at both of our dinners. – I only wish our all-inclusive hotel had this much passion for food. We are already planning our trip back to the Island, and we will include Lola’s for Dinner

“Amazing food for dinner!”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

We just got back from our trip and went to this place for dinner. The appetizers and main courses were outstanding! Two of us had the Famous Sea Bass and it was awesome - maybe the best thing on the menu.

However, we came here the night before for drinks and they were not the best. All of their drink specials are limited to margaritas. Three people in our group had margaritas and no one took more than 3 sips before we left them at the table. I had a mixed drink; they served it in the same glass they were using for margaritas (instead of a rocks glass), heavy mixer and the two ice cubes melted and watered down the drink before I could take my first sip. The bartending staff needs some improvement.

If it wasn't for the bar issues, I would give this place an excellent rating. There food is highly recommended and this restaurant should be higher on TripAdvisor than #11 on the island.
