Chef Seb picked us up at Treasure Beach,, after having just picked up our fresh fish from a local fisherman and we set off on a wonderful adventure. I had been quite hesitant to commit to a dinner by a French chef as I am not the least bit interested in "out there" cuisine. He had asked us when we booked the trip about our likes/dislikes, I told him no raw fish, expecting an expression of disdain, nope, no problem, he said, and there wasn't! The food was incredible, reasonably priced, drinks were good, and the entertainment provided by the spotted eagle rays was fantastic!! An added bonus was Seb's dog Gordon, a gorgeous French bulldog who is a joy to have around! Another thing I found quite appealing about Seb is his obvious interest in protecting the natural resources. He truly cares about the area.

This is without a doubt the best restaurant in Utila, and in fact was one of the best meals I've ever had. Who w ould have expected fine French cuisine on a remote beach in the Carribean? At $25 pp, it was a steal. This included a 3 course meal, including an appetizer of very fresh tuna tartar and butter garlic conch, followed by grilled rockfish in a rum-based sauce, and then crepes suzette. The menu changes daily depending on the day's catch. There is no menu, you are served what is available, and it is guaranteed to be outstanding. Drinks were extra but very reasonably priced. There was a selection of fine wines available by the glass (max $3) or bottle ($16). The meal is served on the beach by an open fire while watching the sun set... you couldn't ask for a better and more romantic atmosphere. Sebastien also picked us up by boat at our hotel on the cays, and brought us back when we felt ready to leave. We had a great time!!

We were lucky to meet Sebastien the evening before and see the beautiful Rock Hind that would be our dinner the following night. We were picked up at the Hotel Kayla dock and transported to Chez Lola to be met by Sebastien and Gordon, the adorable French bulldog. The cocktail which bears his name is fabulous! The appetizer, main course and dessert were all perfection. The setting is like arriving on Fantasy Island. A cautionary word about the sand fleas, they are quite bothersome but should not deter you. We met wonderfully interesting people shared laughs and experiences and left completely satisfied. I agree with all other reviews, a visit to Utila is not complete without at least one evening at Chez Lola!

You have to experience it to believe it! Elegant French restaurant on the beach which is almost too good to be true. The food is amazing and the service top notch. You have to go there!
