I have been traveling to Mexico for 30 years and have never had a meal as good or service like we did recently at Oh Lala. This is a fine dining establishment so make reservations way ahead of your trip or you won't get in. Food was out of this world good to rival the finest places in the US... More

A little off the beaten path, this restaurant restricts the number of tables it allows to be occupied so make your reservation a month or more in advance as they will not seat you even if they have plenty of available tables. Guess they just don't want to handle to many folks at one time. Food is widely varied: Italian,... More

I absolutely loved this place the food was amazing. If you are into meat and potatoes and cannot decipher excellent cuisine or do not have a pallet for fine dining, I suggest you do the taco thing. This place is lovely, the service was outstanding, and most importantly the food was bar none. Excellent in my opinion and I have... More

Maybe the bar was set too high by the reviews but we were underwhelmed. Our meal was good but we have had much better in the last couple of days here.

Went here with family and had a wonderful meal. Not far off the main shopping strip in Playa Del Carmen. MAKE A RESERVATION! I called about 2 weeks in advance and had a hard time getting a good time window. This place had the total package. Greeters were on the job and welcomed me within about 10 seconds. Wine list...

Do yourself a favor and if you are going to be anywhere near Playa del Carmen, make a reservation for Oh Lala. It is honestly one of the best meals we have ever had in our lives. This is a small restaurant and it fills up quickly. We had the mushrooms and the mussels for appetizers (seriously so good and... More

Had a great meal tonight at Oh LaLa! Was directed by our hotel concierge to go to a tourist trap (cave restaurant) and very quickly re-vectored to Oh LaLa.
