The Restaurant

La Lola prides itself on offering a special, unique and innovative experience to its clientele, allowing people to both see and taste gastronomy at its finest.

La Lola

However, La Lola is a lot more than just a Spanish restaurant. The restaurant serves as an exclusive style club or bar that enriches the eyes, ears and stomachs of its customers. DJs are hired to provide music for the restaurant and bar-goers. La Lola also offers a large range of speciality beers which are the perfect starting place for a night out when you visit Valencia.

The most exciting part of La Lola restaurant in Valencia is the fact that every night the dinners have a theme and live music. The most popular of these is the weekend theme which is held on a Thursday, Friday and Saturday: Flamenco. A live Flamenco band plays and dances the night away, surrounding you with Spanish culture while you eat and drink. Other nights you can see DJs or jazz bands.

The restaurant is decorated in a funky and modern style with the use of bold shapes and bright colours and was designed by Paco Martinez. The majority of the decor consists in black, red and white sections, patterned with circles. The whole overtone is a mix of modern art and Flamenco. There is also a terrace outside which highlights the difference between the modern and contemporary interior with the traditional and classical exterior.

The restaurant pays a great deal of attention to its clients both in and out of the restaurant. The food is beautifully presented and there is a menu or a dish for everybody. The staff members also speak a variety of languages aside from Castilian Spanish, including English and Polish - but it is definitely somewhere to go to practise or learn Spanish whilst enjoying some fine Spanish dining too!
