Pizzas are terrific and a wonderful variety including vegan and gluten free.

Exceptional wine and beer list and lots of options for no-booze drinks.

The play list is brilliant

The staff are professional, efficient and friendly.

I recommend for a casual, relaxed, fun dining experience.

Pizza at Lola is amazing! Pizzas are fresh, interesting and delicious. Penny wise Pizza night on Wednesdays is outstanding value. Theatre Royal is such a lovely venue - it’s like the heart of Castlemaine. The staff are friendly and attentive, know their stuff and seem to like working at Theatre Royal as much as the clientele love being there.

Service was prompt and friendly. The menu was varied and interesting. The beer/wine list was brilliant! The ambience was terrific. The pizza was excellent as were the fries that we really did not need and meant we could not sample the desserts offered or get a gelati. Next time!

Upstairs at Bistro Lola is such a welcome relief from the current dim and dire ciscumstances of Covid-19 life. We can't travel interstate or overseas but make a booking at Bistro Lola and you can be transported to any romantic dining nook in any of the great cities of the world - a little bit Paris and little bit New York but always a lot Theatre Royal and Castlemaine. Superb wine list, quality service and simple but elegent food done well and focussing on supporting local growers and producers. We Love It!

The set menu was $60 for 2 courses which we knew ahead of time. However, the French onion soup (which was lovely) was barely a puddle in the bottom of a very shallow dish, and the roast duck leg main was small. Sides were additional $$$. Oysters were an additional entree for $5 each but unavailable. Dessert (which was icecream???) was also $$$. Wine by the glass was limited. Certainly not an $60 meal. We were very disappointed.
