If you are looking for a fine dining experience in a relaxed, friendly environment, then Lola’s Bistro in Florida Road, Durban is the perfect venue. With a warm, gracious welcome, trendy décor and a fabulous bar area, your meal experience will be unforgettable. Situated in the beautiful Quarters boutique hotel, this eatery will not let your hunger pangs down. Owned by the very sociable and gracious Lisa Morel, this childhood dream of providing fine cuisine and creating community within a community has come to fruition in her successful eating place.
I had the pleasure of attending an evening of “menu tasting” recently with a group of fellow bloggers. On arrival, we were instantly made to feel welcome by Lisa and were ushered to the bar area where we ordered our drinks. After some welcoming and background information, we were served a delicious Smokey Bacon Soup topped with shaved biltong. Delicious is actually not the right word, it was out of this world scrumptious. Next to arrive was seared tuna with a sesame seed crust served with the most amazing deep fried wasabi mash ball. It was something different and very flavoursome. A very juicy Chicken Breast wrapped in bacon and served with butternut cubes and deep fried zucchini arrived next. I was in foodie heaven with all these delicious flavours. As the menu rightly states, “The Grande Finale”…….. Dessert arrived. Lisa and her team set up a buffet style dessert table which was truly the cherry on the cake. The Crème Brulee with an expresso kick was my best. Incuded on the dessert table was Panacotta pots, Chocolate Bomb Lava Cake and Peanut butter Short bread Balls. And so a memorable evening of fantastic food and great company came to an end…….. for now.
