Quintessentially French in every detail, Lola Restaurant, located on Jalan Raya Kerobokan, has earned praise from those lucky enough to discover this dining treasure during its first several months of operation.
Lola Restaurant is a tasteful blend of chic, elegant surroundings, and hearty traditional French cooking. Service and restaurant ambience are delivered under the watchful eye of Mr. Andre Jean Zahra, while the kitchen features the culinary talents of French Chef Patrick Chanchereau who has honed his skills in various 2 and 3 star Paris-based Michelin-rated restaurants. Stints in the kitchens at Lassere, Michel Geurard and Eugine Le Bains in France, and Les Cepage in Marrakesh have provided Chef Chanchereau with the inspirational basis for his signature provincial French dishes at Lola Restaurant.
The Menu Highlights
Salads - Simple and straightforward celebrations of the garden market are presented with choices between a confit of tomatoes in an anchovy dressing; poultry livers and gizzards in a confit; or a salad of garden lentils in a vinaigrette dressing.
Lola a La Ferme - emphasizes the traditional French table with a Porc Terrine Maison; fresh escargots; or stewed marrow presented with French Guerande salt.
Seafood - Difficult decisions ahead in the form of fried octopus presented in a warm salad, frog legs in provencale sauce, marinated herrings on warm potatoes, or tuna carpaccio marinated in a special lime dressing.
Lola Specialties - include pork medallions in a mushroom sauce; veal; grilled duck breasts magret served with balsamic vinegar, polenta and turnips; lamb; and a half-chicken roasted in sauce diable.
General Offerings - to tempt diners at Lola regular features showcase a range of local and imported fish; beef tartar; steaks and ribs; or traditional French sausages.
A glimpse at the extensive dessert menu had everyone at our table invoking the gospel of Dr. Atkins and refusing to consider the selections offered. Our protests were to no avail as Andre placed an array of magnificent culinary finales including profiterole with vanilla ice cream and hot chocolate sauce; a warm chocolate cake likely to single-handedly drive up the price of cacao; and an almond mouse presented with fresh fruit.
