My daughter and I visited this cute little gem for lunch when I was searching for sources of local art. The art wasn’t anything special but the meal was fantastic - delicious, fresh and healthy options. I would highly recommend checking it out for lunch...or dinner!!!More

LaLa's Cafe has been our favorite on the Island. They offer a great menu; great food and great atmosphere. The food is refreshing and is delicious. The service staff and cooks are friendly and always accommodating. Also, they have beautiful art pieces on display that...are for viewing pleasure - and for sale. We look forward to returning to LaLa's Art Gallery and Cafe.More

Vegan, veggie and GF options. Delicious, fresh food in a beautiful setting. The GF salad was served with warm pita bread that was definitely not gluten free after letting them know that person had a wheat allergy, so not sure what happened there, but we...all thoroughly enjoyed the food and will probably go back.More

This is our third review of Lala, each one year apart. The restaurant is now in the capable hands of Bel (Isabella) and Shel, who assumed command in spring of 2019. Many of the dishes are the same, although recently at least there were exclusively...vegetarian/pescatarian options. The mussels continue wonderful and the Moroccan stew (red snapper or shrimp) delicious. The dal soup (spicy lentils with rice and fruit) is a filling option. The portions continue to be sized conservatively, which is completely adequate...one leaves feeling fulfilled, not overly filled. Shel's studio is in the back, by the way. Spices are integral and while not "hot" are aromatic. The deserts are also quite similar to past practice: extraordinary carrot cake with probably nutmeg and ? other spices, nut slice with homemade ice cream; and a solid cheesecake with fruit coulis to name only a few. The ambience is garden quiet and intimate. Highly recommended yet again.More

The setting and decor of Lala is unique, quaint and fun. We enjoyed looking at the art while waiting for our food. The service was excellent; a very friendly young gal who's name unfortunately I don't recall. The food was a bit disappointing. Although not...terribly expensive, it still wasn't worth the price. Two of us ordered pasta with sauce which was like gourmet Chef Boyardee. Not bad, just nothing special. One order pizza. About the same response. Another ordered tomato soup which was fair. Best thing we ordered... the guac! We probably would go again for a glass of wine and to see the art, but not to eat.More

Samsoa’s were tasty. The Moroccan stew was good but lacking in depth. The pasta dish with cheese was over cooked and flavorless. The carrot cake was nice and moist but the super lemony icing didn’t work with it. Love lemon but not with carrot cake?...This visit the atmosphere was laLa’s strong suit. The bill was HIGH.More

Such a nice little restaurant that is very cozy and tucked in a little small jungle feel. Very nice owner and servers. Very aware of dining customers needs. Worth the short walk from Infinity Bay Resort.

I think it depends on the time of year. If it's peak season, email Lala and she'll give you an answer.
