It's worth stopping here for Mopani (traditional caterpillar dish) and a beer, but not much else. Service was very good, and the band at night was too. But it's the only place to try Mopani that we could find

We came here for a quick coffee and a snack and had service better than I've experienced anywhere in the world. Not only did we get complimentary soups and peanuts, but with the bill we were each given a little necklace. No complaints about the coffee either!

Discovered Lola's on our fourth night in Vic Falls but enjoyed it so much that we came again - twice more. Go for the tapas - a good selection and reasonably priced (for Zimbabwe) - the portions are large and you only need 2 or 3 to feel full. An interesting fusion of Spanish and African cuisine. The local dance... More

We stopped at Lola's for a late afternoon drink and ended up having Lola's wonderful home made sangria. The owners were welcoming and helpful. The restaurant has a warm, nice vibe. While we were there we were entertained by local musicians and dancers who were very good. Very pleasant way to spend an hour or two, away from Vic Falls'... More

I am guessing, but I think Lola came out from Spain to Vic Falls and never left. A classy Spanish lady who has combined her culinary talents with quality local ingredients, producing Zimbo style tapas with a flair. Lola also supports a local dance troupe who put on a show that even my jaded foot couldn't ignore!

Went to this restaurant a few times during our 4 day stay in Victoria Falls and every time we went we had a great experience. The food tasted amazing, the staff and owner were incredibly friendly, and the overall atmosphere was great. I definitely would recommend this restaurant to anyone traveling to Vic Falls.

...the Lola's tapas bar wasn't. As a Spaniard, I am pretty picky with my tapas and I can honestly say that the fusion between Spanish food and African delicacies was perfect. So was the chat with the owners and the friendly service by their staff. We were there with a group of 13 people and there was not a single... More

Disliked the price being South African we found it expensive. Liked the entertainment, marimba band dancing and singing. Food was not to our liking or price range. The hostess was very good and waiters friendly.

What an amazing time we had at Lola's Tapas & Bar, Victoria Falls. The kids enjoyed the triple decker club sandwich and we had the chicken wraps which were really really delicious.
