Lola's is a small little Place located in Marina, Calif. right behing McDonalds off Reservation Road. The Food consists of Filipino Dishes that are a tastey Treats at affordable prices. I like the Pancit Noodles and Dinaguan maybe spelled wrong as well as the Adobo. The Food is served by the friendly Owner or his Sister and everything is always... More

I enjoy Filipino Food very much and eat it very often. This is a very small Restaurant located in a little Strip Mall behind Mc Donalds off of Reservation Road. The Food is prepared and are kept on Steamer Trays ( warmers ) The selections are good and price is very inexpensive for this tastey Cusine. What I also like... More

My review is based on two experiences - eat-in and catering. The quick lunch of sinigang na baboy and caldereta was average. Service was excellent; quick and the owners were attentive and friendly. We are from the east coast and were vacationing in Carmel for the Thanksgiving weekend. I was requested by my American husband's family to serve Filipino food... More

Small restaurant with tasty food. The chicken adobo and rice was very good the lumpia was tasty and not greasy. They give you an abundance of food for very reasonable price.

Lola's has some good Food. The Atmosphere is simple and nothing spectacular. What I find to be disturbing is that the Owner allows a Homeless Guy to sometimes serve Food. The Guy is dirty looking and has no business handling Food. Also none of the Helpers have met California's requirement for Safe Handling of Food. Also the last few times... More

I catered a birthday party using Lola's. The roast pork was exceptional and the pancit was superb. Excellent filipino food. The owners are lovely and love what they do. Good job.

Filipino "cusine." I was looking for good Filipino food and was sorely disappointed. Pancit and prawns tasted "old" and lacking in flavor. Prqwns were dry. Other foods were mediocre at best. Even the standard of the Philippines, adobo, was mediocre, especially the chicken. Would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. Not worth the trip to this strip mall hole in... More
