Briefly : we had a flawless evening at Lola's. The food was stunning, the service impeccable (and very friendly) and the atmosphere just right. What's not to like? Thank you very much. Many thanks to Lola's.

Lovely calamari, delicious croquettes and gorgeous garlic prawns. I wasn’t so keen on the patatas bravas but the husband liked them. Rather nice house wine too. Great to enjoy a taste of Spain, just wish it was warm and sunny too.

Hi. Yes they can be hard to get hold of but if you leave a message they have always returned my calls. Generally earlier in the week is best if you just want to turn up.
