I love walking, and I love eating good food. The more I eat, the more I need to walk, so I plan to walk all around the world, eating good food, at nice places. It's a worthwhile quest and I'd love you to follow at

Right next to the water at Cullen Bay Marina is a circus-themed eatery known as Lola's Pergola.

You'd be forgiven for thinking you'd arrived at a fairground since Lola's features sparkly toys, a giant rocking horse and a real, working carousel.


There's also a Donkey Kong arcade machine, Barbie Doll decorations and no shortage of merry-go-round horses adorning the building.


And lots of circus posters of course.

Lola's is a self-serve establishment. You order drinks and food at the bar and look out for your allocated number on a screen which prompts you to collect your meal, cutlery, condiments and so on.

There's also a self-serve water station.

The menu offers pizzas (prices are mysteriously missing from this section of the menu), eight different salads at $18 each, fish and chips, scotch fillet steak and 'Incredible Plates' from $18 (these are like snack bites).

There's a children's menu with the usual things that kids are offered when they dine out ( fish fingers, nuggets, mini-burgers and so on) for $7, or $10 if you 'want lollies with that'.

My companion's fish and chips reminded me of pub fare, but then Lola's is promoted as a 'gastropub' and they specialise in burgers. Advertised as 'the best in town' Lola's burgers start at $13 and come in versions of fish, vegetarian, kangaroo, lamb, pulled pork, chicken and 'simply beef'.
