Named for the owner’s pet pig (who sometimes frolics in the waves as diners watch), this quintessential beach bar and restaurant sits on a patch of land and sand fronting the quiet and underdeveloped Playa Avellanas beach. The Belgian and U.S. owners serve up hearty, fresh food (like seared tuna atop salad with an Asian dressing) on homemade wooden tables and chairs under the shade of palm trees and large linen umbrellas. Lola’s is extremely popular, especially on weekends, so be prepared to wait occasionally for food or a table (sorry, no reservations). When you’re finished, you might snag a siesta in one of the hammocks strung between the many coconut palms.
