Description: Wonderful Palapa Restaurant since 1982 with a pebble floor, mayan sculptures, waterfalls, hammocks, exotic birds, a peaceful garden with a fantastic jungle setting. Excellent Seafood, Authentic Mexican and Yucatecan Cuisine. World Famous "Lalo's Special", a dish made with fresh shrimp, lobster, calmer, fish and chicken fajitas is Superb. The ceviche made of fresh fish, shrimp, lobster, octopuss and lemon is also exceptional. The most relaxing place to laze in a hammock after a delicious feast.

“Delicious and Fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2012

We had a delicious lunch, my sangria was great! It was so much fun to meet Lala, their young spider monkey in diapers! She was super friendly, holding onto my fingers, and rolling around and playing! Very, very cute! This visit was one of the high points of my visit to Tulum. The dining area was beautiful, outside and under a palapa, butterflies and flowers all around.

“Very Disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012 via mobile

This was our second visit this holiday, the first we went with local friends were underwhelmed on both food and atmosphere, however due to the excellent reviews overall we felt they deserved another try. Regretfully ths was a disaster. We had chicken fahitas and shrimp enchiladas. The Fahita was barely edible even the resident cat turned its nose up at the chicken we gave it. The enchilada we were unable to eat and returned it having taken one small sample. In fairness to them they did not charge for the enchilada. We will not be returning a third time.

“Best stuffed poblano pepper!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2012

Everything was good - nice, tropical location, interior, delicious food and drinks! You can go relax in the hammock after the dinner with a cup of coffee or a drink and watch Lolita (baby monkey) playing around! She so much fun to watch! Ask Virginia the owner about privat tours, we were very pleased with ours!

“Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2012

We visited Oscar & Lalo because friends Sue and Pete from Rhode Island suggested it.And they were right on the mark with this place.Food and service were great.Mango margarita's delicious .The special of the night is the little monkey that you get to play with.
We had a beautiful supper here twice during our week long stay.Can't wait to go back next year .Keep up the good work:))
