It's our anniversary! My husband and I decided on a Spanish family restaurant. We chose this restaurant because it was romantic and intimate. The service was excellent and I loved the bright & colorful wall art by Simon of New Orleans.
Let's start with the red homemade Sangria. I have been following their Instagram for a while. The Sangria did not disappoint. It was filled with fresh fruit and not too sweet. I drank two glasses. It was pretty good.
The restaurant sit's across the street from some very popular restaurants, but don't let that fool you. Guests were constantly coming in to eat. This place is a gem in the Bayou St. John area.
For starters, we ordered Mussels in Vinaigrette. The mussels were large and steamed in a homemade vinaigrette. I really enjoyed the flavor of the dish.
We also enjoyed the bread served with Lola's famous Garlic Alioli spread. That spread was so tasty! I enjoyed the whipped flavor of it and the taste.
The main course, my husband and I got Paella. He ordered the combination and I ordered the seafood. The seafood had shrimp, fish, calamari, scallops, mussels and veggies with herbs. The combination included meat and seafood paella. The paella was so flavorful and the seafood was so fresh. I really enjoyed the shrimp and fish. We had plenty to take home with us.
Thank you Lola's for making us feel at home with your romantic restaurant filled with amazing food.
