Always a great experience at Lolo and Lola’s. Amazing and authentic food served with the hallmark Filipino hospitality! I love the concept of the weekly special dishes which means I can try something different every time I visit. It’s always busy for a reason so I’d recommend booking ahead :) See less

Place that feels like home with weekly special dish and good service. However, after covid the food consistency a bit disappointing and less weekly special dish. Hopefully as we are returning to normal the place could pick up their game again so I could enjoy more Filipino dishes. See less

The food was great. However, the atmosphere is very loud and it can get hot being near the kitchen. This makes the dine in experience to be unpleasant. However, had the leftovers for lunch and it was quiet nice. See less

The best Filipino restaurant in Canberra! Many great dishes! I particularly loved the chicken barbecue skewers (one of the Signature dishes) Their menu are updated weekly so you get to try many different dishes. I also liked their stir fried vermicelli noodles and beef stew so much. Don’t miss their UBE drinks. The UBE latte (good for winter) and UBE shake (lovely for summer) are both great! See less

Oh WOW! I am a bit hard to please and a hard reviewer. I have grown up with excellent meals from my brother, a chef, and my mother an excellent 'cook'. My son and I had 3 dishes and garlic rice. I rate this place above 4 stars. We did a takeaway order and the website was so easy. I highly recommend the food. I actually can't remember a better meal in Canberra bar one or two. See less

A lot of overhyped reviews on here but is definitely is a good restaurant: good service, tasty food and reasonable portion sizes. The menu is fairly concise and easy to order from. I forgot there were additional dessert options up the front in their display window. 3 caveats: * They have an electronic ordering system, even for customers who are dining in. This makes ordering additional items a chore. If you want an extra drink, you have to go through the whole rigmarole of punching in your email and card details. * Some dishes are dry, and need extra sauce. The steamed Barramundi was great, it was stuffed with a few tomatoes but more sauce or toppings would have been nice. Same with the pork belly dish - it was very dry. They did provide a vinegar dressing but what if you didn't want vinegar? I asked if they had chilli sauce or something like that, and they kindly provided fresh chili. * I wouldn't take any vegetarian or vegan friends here. There are limited options for them. I would like to visit again to try the authentic dishes, especially the desserts. See less

Went there purely to pick up HaloHalo ☺️. Was craving after seeing our Philippines holiday trip couple of years ago. It was a damn good Halo! Staff were super friendly and everything was handled in a Covid safe manner. See less

This is the first time that I've been to a Filipino restaurant. Very interesting food - we ordered the barramundi (superb!) , prawn and pumpkin, and pork belly. Great services - friendly staff members kept checking on whether things were going well with us. And amazing drinks - highly recommend the avocado thick milkshake (cold) and the purple yam latte (hot) ! See less

Had a very nice prawn and pumpkin curry. The service was good. I was by nyself and had chosen the Ribs with bbq banana glaze, but they are served straight up with nothing else and there were no vegie or salad side dishes available. Didn't fancy just meat for dinner. I like the jar of sanitizer on every table. See less

We didn't expect it, but the best food we had while in Canberra, was this bangin filo feast at Lolo and Lola. Most of Canberra felt pretty quiet on a weekend evening, but this spot was paaaaaacked out with people of all ethnicities... So you already know it's gon be good! We ordered almost half their menu and honestly wished we had the stomach space to try everything else because all their dishes were so delicious. Highlights for me were the chicken BBQ skewers -- juicy and beautifully glazed with a charcoal-smokey flavour, and the sinigang -- it had just the right amount of sourness to awaken all my senses. @mignitatravels See less

The Best Filipino restaurant in Australia I have ever been! Tastes like home. Very tidy, friendly staff and prompt service. The food are all rich in flavors. I am amazed in how they were able to use Australian ingredients and still retain the Filipino flavours. I really really hope they branch out to Sydney. See less

Lolo and Lola is definitely one of the most popular restaurants in Canberra. We came here on a Friday night for dinner. Firstly I must say the staff were very friendly and helpful. We had the famous crispy fried pork belly, and steamed barramundi. The pork belly was crackling and crunchy, though some pieces were too dry and tough to eat. The barramundi was cooked right but the flavours could have been more pronounced, as it really needed the garlic sauce to be tasty. The drinks were very sweet but the pandan cake was delicious. Overall a must try place for Filipino cuisine. See less
