“Superb dining experience”
Reviewed 30 July 2014 via mobile

We started with cucumber margaritas, chips and salsa, then came the shrimp ceviche with a hint of cucumber, and the coconut shrimp, not deep fried and heavy, on top of a delightful bed of coconut rice. It was light and flavorfully delicious!! We have been here several times over the years and Lola... "Lori" has always made us feel special with her dishes and hospitality. This was one of the BEST meals we have eaten on the island.

“The best on the island”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

Just a short walk from the hotel I am staying, I stopped last night for dinner upon a recommendation from a couple I met. I was not disappointed. The tropical guacamole was excellent. The camarones in coconut curry sauce was even better. The presentation was beautiful. I can't wait to go back.

“Our favorite!”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

We ate breakfast here twice! We had to go back for the stuffed poblano at breakfast. The owner was delightful and she puts her heart and soul into the restaurant. We stayed at an all inclusive but were happy to ditch the mediocre buffet and go to Lola Valentina. Treat yourself and go to this place!

“Great Food and Drinks”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

We ate here twice and really enjoyed the food both times. Once for breakfast and the other for dinner. For dinner we had fish tacos, grilled squid, empanadas and a really yummy salad with deep fried balls of goats cheese mmmm They also make a great margerita with unusual flavours not your standard ones- definitely worth a try. Breakfast was also equally delicious and they are able to provide gluten free options also.
All in all it is worth a visit.

“Perfect breakfast”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

We were staying nearby and were out for a walk and saw the daily breakfast specials - wow. The menu was eclectic, and our party of 4 each loved their order. The bloody Marys were the best on the island. Service was quick and friendly. I would definitely stop in again for breakfast of lunch. Wish they were open for dinner, but I think they closed at 2pm
