This restaurant is on the end of the busy main street so the location is a bit more calm than in the middle of the street. We went here on our first night on the island for a cocktail in the bar. It was a very nice bar to sit in, good drinks, nice staff and good music. They recommended us to try the restaurant next time and we did. The menu is cross kitchen modern mexican food. In my opinion a bit too complicated dishes. We tried the fish tacos wich were really good but the portion was huge! You can definately share it between two people and it is still too much. We also had a salad wich sounded good on the menu but was more or less just a big pile of lettuce - disappointing. Nice staff and a nice terrace to sit and watch people walk by. Definately one of the better restaurants on the main street.

Had dinner on our most recent stay in Isla with wife and infant son. We had the surf and turf, shrimp was excellent, meat was undercooked for how we ordered it, but a quick trip back to the grill finished it off. Prices are reasonable. Staff is friendly.

I arrived in very late on my first day and was starving. I didn't know where to go being my first time here on Isla Mujeres. Walked up and down Hidalgo St and came across Lola Valentina and remembered hearing the name. It was late and very few people in the restaurant but was greeted with smiles and welcome. I decided to order the stuffed poblano peppers. What a gorgeous presentation the peppers were sitting in pureed black bean sauce with a design of crema. Very gourmet and simply delicious. I also ordered a mango cilantro margarita which was very fresh.

We've been in vacation for 4 days and we just had the best meal here. Vegetarian tacos and breakfast enchiladas were amazing!!!!

After a few bouts with Montezumas Revenge on Isla from eating in local dives, and in a state of dying for some clean, fresh food, I stumbled upon this place. After that I became a total regular, best place on Isla to eat! The menu is imaginative, and interesting and absolutely everything is delicious, fresh and healthful! And the bets of all is the amazing margaritas! Creatively flavored with ginger, pineapple, jalapeño or watermelon. David is a master margarita maker, and a really sweet bar tender. Two thumbs up for this spot, could not have survived without it!
