Good food but undercooked meat

The food here was ok and plentiful. My meat was juicy but undercooked. Had issues later. They have all types of African and European dishes.

Great location, nice friendly waitress, good menu with a broad selection of traditional tapas and some with more local influence. Local guy came and played some music and did a dance, loved it.

WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY overpriced. $19 for a burger and $23 for crocodile tenders - really? That's in U.S. dollars. Dirty and run-down location too...certainly not paying for the view.

I loved the food, Zambezi beer and the traditional dance performed at Lola's tapas. I and my husband enjoyed Italian food, Spanish and the local foods also. Lola's tapas is a clean place to relax, eat, enjoy a local beer, interact with the local people and enjoy the traditional dance. The staff are very welcoming and the owner is a... More

It is a nice place in the middle of Vic Falls and within walking distance of the falls. The food is good but at those prices?? There are a few other places that is as good or even better.

We visited Lola's one evening, they didn't have any chicken or any of the goat curry. I ordered fish which was dry and not very tasty. The meal was very expensive and I did not feel as though I had received value for money at all. The dancers were fantastic but all in all it was a very disappointing evening.

We went to Lola's twice for food and drink. It was near our Ilala Lodge hotel, and tucked away enough to be secluded. The food was well cooked and presented, drinks were a reasonable price. We were served both times efficiently and politely. It is a good family place to eat, if you don't want posh or flash.

Lola's and Carnivore seem to be owned and run by the same staff; with the facilities next door to each other. We ordered from Lola's menu and started with mopane worms (our last challenge of the weekend) and the tapas tester. For mains we ordered crocodile cesar salad and piri-piri chicken. The chicken was underdone and did not have any... More
