We had just arrived in Victoria Falls and were hungry.

This place looked clean and the food I saw on a diners table looked nice so we grabbed a table.

The food was good, the service was OK and the bathrooms clean. In Zimbabwe its hard to find a restaurant with clean bathrooms.

But it was quite expensive. Needless to say, we did not eat here again purely because of the pricing and we stayed in Victoria Falls for a week.

We chanced by this place as we were walking along the main street in town. Its a quaint lil place with good ambience and some decent cocktails. Seemed to be popular with the tourists

The service was really good here. And we enjoyed the selection of tapas. The food was decent, but nothing really special. I'd recommend this if you need a snack before dinner, but I wouldn't expect to leave full. Good drink selection- we enjoyed the local beer.

I just came to Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe from Livingstone, Zambia, so admittedly I am used to high-quality food for a very fair price. I went to Lola's because multiple people (all muzungus) recommended it. Like most of of Victoria Falls, it is way over-priced and made for white tourists. This would be ok if the food was of high-quality, but it isn't. The potatoes with ailoli sauce were generic french fries with a bland mayonnaise. The "tomato bread" (which I thought, admittedly, might resemble bruschetta) was, in fact, a couple of hamburger buns toasted with a tiny amount of something tomatoey smeared across them. Finally, the meat empanadillas were tiny, doughy concoctions with almost no meat in them at all. Wine selection was dismal and this restaurant seemed designed to simply cash in on the re-emerging tourist scene. Slow service, incredibly slow generation of the check, and then incredibly slow return of the change. Finally, like most of Victoria Falls, the place was inundated with flies.

I had the Roast Warthog special of the day. It took a little long to prepare but was worth it. Cooked perfectly. Service was good and priced better than the hotels. Located conveniently in town. Highly recommend this place.
