Ate here in May 2014 with some friends. I went for the tapas selection which was great - large serve of tasty morsels. However, my friends opted for meals. These serves were very small and way over-priced. Stick to the tapas.

DO go to Lola's .Maria, the owner is lovely, the snack and service good. A haven of peace and tranquillity at lunchtime, when we were there in June. Would definitely go back if visiting Zimbabwe again. Was made to feel like part of her family.

Great entertainment for 1.5 hrs with out a break traditional dancing and music . The food was very average prices almost as much as some of the restaurants at the hotels . Also only take cash which is not advertised difficult as a traveller who doesn't carry a lot of cash and uses the card option

Had really good tapas here. We were quite amazed to find such good tapas in Victoria Falls. Service was good and the staff very pleasant

We just had a quick sand which, but it was fresh and delicious. We were also lucky enough to listen to a great marimba band

Average tapas except try do the worms! Lola was everywhere but not attending to the staff or service. Our food took perhaps 45 minutes and all tapas dishes then arrived at once. However we were entertained by an upbeat local drum/chant/dance group.

Lola's was pretty disappointing to say the least. The music and dancers were very loud, unrelenting, and in-your-face. They got our order wrong, not once, not twice, but 3 times - and that was after we decided to chase things up after waiting over 20 minutes with no service. Not the kind of place for a nice quick bite to... More

Servings very small, but good: we had fish pudding and croquettes, the only things we could find without wine (allergic to the preservatives in wine). More selection and larger portions for the prices would be good

Slow waiter, uninterested and lazy! Got two of our orders wrong, never ended up getting the two and still got billed for them! Music was way too loud!

We enjoyed a live show on a Thursday night here, and had a platter of food. There was one girl in the group that had an amazing voice. The service, food and drink were just average.
