Outstanding, and worthy of a James Beard award! I own and operate and love visiting restaurants in my home town of Chicago, and with that, I have a very high expectation of the whole restaurant experience. Oh Lala was not just the best in PDC, it was in my top of 5 of any restaurant any where, even Chicago. From... More

If you are looking for fine dining in Playa del Carmen stay out of the tourist traps on 5th Avenue. And venture out to 10th Ave. Oh Lala is arguably the best restaurant in a town with hundreds and hundreds of perfectly acceptable places to eat. The service is perfect, the food excellent and the prices very reasonable. It's a... More

We wouldn't miss dining here...our favorite restaurant in town. Always excellent food, well presented and good service. Last night was no exception.. Busy place but good wait staff with management oversight and pitching in to help. Our waiter, Barba, did a good job!

We returned for another fabulous dinner. The ambiance, service and attention to detail are second to none. We had sea bass and shrimp, both of which were perfectly prepared and served. Our waiter, Barbar, was wonderful. We intend to dine there weekly during our winter stay here in Playa.

They were under staffed and the service was spotty however extra brownie points for going to a neighbour restaurant to find me gluten free bread for my mussels. I was expecting the bill to be more...but I only ordered 2 appetizers because I don't eat much in one sitting. Was just enough. The presentation and quality of the food was... More

Before my trip to Playa del Carmen, I did a lot of research in order to choose the best restaurants for my family's stay. Being the highest rated restaurant in PDC, of course I made a reservation. The restaurant did not disappoint! The service was prompt and kind. Not only were they attentive, but they gave us a complimentary appetizer... More

It was excellent - food, wine, service - everything perfect. It is a little tricky to find but don't give up! It is a little way off the Main Street as... More

I had the filet mignon in wine sauce and my wife had the Madras curry and both were excellent. George the owner was more than helpful.
