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

We stayed a few nights in the town of Victoria Falls and had the surprise of our life when we found a really good restaurant in the town. The food was great, no problem with walking from the hotel at night as security was good but not sure it was needed, they have on going shoes of African music and... More

We had high expectations based on the recommendations we heard, but after tasting both African and a good ol' hamburger, we found it to be ok, but nothing we went back for.

Strange spot, claimed to offer all you can eat of a variety of meats. Brought them out in fondue size portions.....when I asked for a particular meat and only that meat...I still got a fondue portion every now and again. It would have taken hours to eat, had I not lost patience. Mushroom sauce was a blob of I suspect... More
