Had a zebra burger and juice for lunch, wasn't sure if it was really zebra as it tasted like beef, it was over priced, juice was not cold. Service fair at best.

We had a short lunch there, the menu had some game food, presented as local cuisine. I am not actually sure it was a real local cuisine but it was tastefull. The abmience was not something special, not very clean either. For 10 USD per dish, one can say its interesting to have their crocodile burger!

Unusual menu with lots of local meats and treats to try. Great service and comfortable setting. Very reasonable prices. For the not so adventurous eater a good selection of standard foods can be found on the menu as well.

We were lucky to be a group of 6, so for $30 we were able to have "meat tasting" experience. It started with delicious butter pumpkin soup, crocodile burger and mopani worms (internet searches suggested Boma is the only place to have them, not true!). Than we had a zebra steak, eland steak, giraffe goulash (terrific!), warthog steak, sable antelope... More

We stopped by for a snack two days in a row and had the Wildebeest skewers (excellent) as well as chicken wings and prawns (both good). Lovely to have musicians in the square next to the restaurant

Lola is very enthusiastic about her customers and likes to dance and encourage her staff to also. Friendly, fairly average pricing for the area and unique items on the menu. Several in family enjoyed the giraffe ribs, but I couldn't bring myself to eat the ribs, or the fried worms. I won't order the tapas again as prawns were mush.

OK small restaurant, very good entertainment for an hour or so while we ate one evening. It bills itself as Lola's Tapas so we thought we would try the platter for two. Prawns, game meatballs (which animal might vary ) calamari rings, potato bravas and Spanish omelette for $30 for two. Expensive by some European standards never mind Zimbabwe but... More

Went to Lola's because they had some intriguing game meats on the menu. We ordered the giraffe ribs and zebra burger. The giraffe ribs were a huge portion of meat but the meat was so tough that it was really difficult to eat and not enjoyable. The zebra burger was tiny, couldn't even see it in the bread when they...
