There's an expressions that says, "A day at the beach is like a month in the city," but here at Isla Mujeres a week on this island is a lifetime of happiness. As I write after a few glasses of mojito washed down with a bottle of wine, I don't try to recall the events of this evening for the... More

At Lolo Lorena's the format was a dinner party. About 15-17 people and a couple of long tables to pick your seat at. The guests were a very interesting group of people, mostly ex-pats from the US who live on the Island and a few tourists. The format of a dinner party was very neat and social. The mojito saved...

We've been to Lolo Lorena's several times now over the years...dinner does NOT disappoint! My husband and I consider ourselves "foodies" and this by far is our favorite sit-down meal on the island. Just to give you some context, we live outside of Washington, DC so are spoiled by a plethora of fine dining options, and Lorena is on par... More

Lolo Lorena is fine dining at it's best. The unique setting in Lolo's courtyard at her home is warm and inviting. The meal is a fabulous 5 course culinary delight prepared by Lolo, who is very serious about her cooking. She is also warm and personable, somehow finding the perfect balance to enhance your dining experience! And the food? To... More

I just got married on isla mujeres, and picked Lolo Lorena's as our restaurant of choice for our dinner after the ceremony. We had 30 people in total. Basically, I can't stop hearing rave reviews from our friends and family. The food was amazing. The atmosphere was amazing. The service was amazing. This is fine dining cuisine in a laid... More

One might not think of seating outside at a wooden (with proper linens) as luxurious, but it is! The height of civilized, LoLo's setting offers guests the chance to get to know each other, if they want, while remaining intimate. That said, the new dishes she keeps coming up with are more delicious than the previous time I ate there.... More

My sister bought us a private cooking class and romantic dinner on Isla Mujeres here. My new husband loves to cook and he was beyond thrilled with what he learned. He learned how to make restaurant quality pico de gallo, enchilladas, guacamole, chilis rellenos and soupa de lima. It was amazing watching her and her very talented sou chef Omar... More

The day before I had found a recommendation for Lolo Lorena's in the NY times travel section that I had printed out prior to our trip.

Lolo Lorena's is different from any dining experience on Isla Mujeres. You actually dine in Lolo's home, while she prepares your 5 course dinner. The atmosphere is lovely, set in her courtyard, unless the weather is unpleasant (unusual for Isla) which will move dinner inside. Diners are seated together at a large table and are served their own wine by... More
