    Lola is a wonderful dining experience. Beautiful food; exemplary service; inviting atmosphere. This was our second visit & won’t be our last!

    Beautiful surroundings, friendly staff, very nice meal, fellow diner was surprised tea bag had been taken out of pot as she likes strong tea. Coffee delicious.

    This was an event that was beautifully executed. The dining room when full is noisy due to the wooden floors, which means it is not really an intimate space.

    Food was good quality, beautiful presentation but found it a bit pricy for the size of the serves and thought price of sides a little steep. Service was good at the beginning of the evening but deteriorated rapidly and was non-existent when a large Wine Society group booking arrived. Waited 40 minutes for sweets and cancelled coffee due to the poor service.

    The entrees and desserts were really good, but we found the mains to be average in terms of taste, size, and quality.

    Disapointed with the food. Ricotta and Spinich Gnocchi very small serving, almost cold, lacked flavour and not melt in your mouth like I expect gnocchi would be. Service was very attentive and lovely atmosphere.

    We visited Ballarat for a girls w/end and saw "Lola" Restaurant @ The Provincial Hotel in a magazine and thought we would try it as the interior design looked divine. Unfortunately that's where it stopped. There were six of us, three had the Gnocchi which they enjoyed. One had the Risotto of the day (Sun dried tomatoes), oily and bland. Another had the Duck, dry, and mine was the Orecchiette Pasta, way too oily and the Pasta was rubbery! It was a real disappointment as I previously said," the interior was lovely space to enjoy a lovely lunch with friends:( Maybe if were in the area again, we'll just go for drinks, just to be in a beautiful space!

    Our small group had high expectations, however we were a little disappointed that the food wasn't as amazing as we hoped

    Food and service was phenomenal however the cocktails weren't quite to scratch considering its price point. For a $20 cocktail I would expect a slightly larger serving and the presentation needs to be of a higher standard. Overall I would give the restaurant an 8/10.

    Everything was spot-on but the chairs !!!!!!!!! Oh dear! I think they were chosen more for style than for diners' comfort at table.
