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

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.
