The best thing about our meal here was the great band that set up on the steps next to the restaurant and entertained us. Otherwise it was pricey, average food and no atmosphere

Lovely food, especially if you love meat. Try the game tasting menu 'THE CARNIVORE' which gives you a great opportunity to taste all different kind of game meat like Crocodile, Kudu, Giraffe, Zebra, Impala and many more. You also can have as much as you can bear. Furthermore, the Mopani worms were an absolute delicious experience too; give it a... More

In the mood for something different? Give Lola's a chance!!! Not only can you try game, but the way they do Mopane worms, is definitely worth a taste.

Food was nicely prepared. We had a birthday for a 12 year old. The group that was playing did a great job to sing happy birthday and celebrate with us. The Chef had a plata of new foods for all the share and taste. That was lovely and nice.

Food was average, coffee was very expensive and had salt in it for some reason had to return the cup twice. Card machines did not work so in a country where cash is a challenge this become a major issue.

Lola's is easily found in the centre of Victoria Falls town; it offers a wide variety of game to eat including crocodile and Kudu. It has a semi alfresco dining environment, the staff are helpful and friendly. Two course dinner with three beers cost me $30 which I considered reasonable.

I ate here two nights in a row. I wanted to try some different game meats. I had giraffe stew, zebra, kudu, wildebeest, impala, and sable. It wasn't very good, so don't get any of the exotic game items. I did have warthog at another place and it was really good. Some of the other items on the menu might... More

Excellent selection. Not too expensive if you don't over-do it. Food was good and the staff friendly. Would recommend.

Went to Lola's they day before flying home from our Safari. Great finale to our trip. Our group mainly ordered from the Game Menu -Impala, crocodile, giraffe ribs, etc. and everyone enjoyed their meal. (We were assured the meat was farmed and not wild.) We returned the next day for a light lunch and enjoyed that too.

Good choice of food and tapas. The restaurant is run by a Spanish couple and they run it well. There is live African music which is not too intrusive. Good value and good food. The service is very pleasant but can be slow, which is fine in this climate
