“Fabulous Seafood and wine!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2014

I had the stuffed grouper and my finance had the Coconut Curry shrimp, both were amazing! Great wine and service! The owner was super friendly and stopped by the table to see how we liked everything. Can't wait to go back and to also visit her new restaurant being built now.

“An exceptional dining experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014 via mobile

We walked the entire market in search of something quaint, quiet & personal. This is it! From hand crafted Margaritas to appetizers to main courses - ALL were over the top. An elegant dining experience - don't miss Lola Valentina!

“Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014 via mobile

We really didn't have a bad meal on Isla Mujeres but I think Lola Valentina's was our favourite. We had the stuffed grouper and the tamarind chicken and both were amazing. There's also a nice vibe to the place - it's open to Hidalgo but you're not eating right on the street like other places. The service was prompt and attentive too. Overall, a great restaurant.

“AMAZING!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

The margaritas are made with fresh fruit juice, not the stuff that comes in a carton or frozen. Lola's offers 2 for 1 margaritas all day until 10:00 pm. The sea bass entree is a must try! The shrimp in adobe sauce was also very good! We had the flour tortilla stuffed with apples served with a rum sauce and again it did not disappoint! TheService was outstanding and the prices were very reasonable!!! For two dinner entrees, 2 margaritas and a dessert it was only 475 pesos which is $35.00 USD. I would definitely recommend this restaurant :)

“You can make a meal trying all of the appetizers!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014

The setting was super cute and had a great view of all the bustle on Hidalgo. They brought out chips and salsa- which, btw the salsa was probably the best I had on the island. We decided to get two appetizers because we could not decide. The guac was also, probably the best I had during this visit also. Instead of plain old guac it had bacon and pineapple in it (if I'm remembering correctly) and came with mini fried goat cheese balls. SO GOOD. The service was great also. Win-win. Go here for sure.
