We are invited to join some Spanish friends for lunch at a typical Spanish Tapas bar and are greeted by a jovial waiter Mauri to whom we explain that I have an intolerance to anything cooked in Olive oil, and he said that everything here is cooked in Olive oil! After consulting with owner Lola and chef Concha, they produce a bottle of Girasol (sunflower oil) and say that they will cook anything I order in this, no Fuss no bother. Mean time our host orders a Tapas spread of Prawn Pil Pil, Black pudding, battered Onion rings, Chicken with mushroom, Potato Croquettes, marinated Tomatoes, and battered prawns, As the starter elements of these arrive at the table a specially prepared delicious prawn dish for me was rustled up, and as more Tapas arrived, a Sea Bass a la plancha with a mixed salad is set before me. The meal ended with two plates of mixed desserts. The empty plates bear witness to our enjoyment of the meal.
This was all done with attention, and with good grace, and I very much appreciated that.

The eclectic dining room with something like 30 clocks spread around this and the bar area that seats in total about 40 with a further 60 covers on the pleasant terrace. OK this is a Tapas bar with basic table setting, paper serviettes, nice crockery and cutlery, but these fade into insignificance because of the owner and her staff who sought to please, and they certainly succeeded for this dinner.

The V.S.
Lola’s can be found in Centro Commercial El Pilar, No 3, On the N340 approach from the east (towards Estepona) and at km 168, when you see the Senator Banus Spa Hotel on the left, take the exit and immediately turn right and at the next junction turn left, the restaurant is 50 m. on the left Parking in the surrounding service roads. They open for lunch and dinner, with Sunday being their day of rest. Average 3 course meal with wine 25€. There is a website where you can view the menu on which they have chef’s recommendations and see those dishes that are spicy

T.A. do not allow me to give contact details but hopefully they can be found in the heading of this restaurant.

Lola's popularity is testament to its quality. As a walk-in party of eight, we had to wait maybe half an hour to order and were delighted by the range of dishes we had.
The place is informal, everyone can relax and just enjoy simple but tasty food well prepared and served by cheerful staff.
Well worth a visit.

Nice restaurant and terrace area and inside bar where some prefer to sit. However the staff are always under pressure expected to serve both drinks from at the bar and waiting tables with drinks and food at the same time. When busy people are turned away or tend to leave because they cant get served. They needed a dedicated bar person. Otherwise very pleasant Tapas for lunch or dinner.

Place got recommended. Food was average if not below. Worst thing was the miserable lady who simply ruined our evening out. Clearly she has an issue with non-brits. Service was horrible. Empty plates never got cleared only to get a rude answer when trying to order more drinks and food that kitchen had closed.
Pathetic. Do not go there unless you want to be treated badly and have very average food.
