Believe the hype!

My wife and I enjoyed the best meal we've had (so far) in Playa del Carmen last night at oh lala. From the flatbread that arrived shortly after we sat down to the steak, seafood and dessert. It was absolutely delicious. We eat out a lot and as NY'ers we can be a bit jaded. But this was all we... read more

Oh Lala deserves it's numero Uno ranking. We had a fabulous evening sitting at an outside table enjoying excellent food, wine and service. It is such a nice touch for Oh Lala's owners to greet all their guests. Don't miss Oh Lala and be sure to make a reservation.

I understand why this place stands out to the area. My wife and I just visited on the 5/15 based on the recommendations from Trip Advisor and it was worth the difference. My wife had the Seafood Curry and I had the Surf and Turf. My filet was over done I asked for medium so if you really want a... More

I have been to many restaurants in many places but I must say that this one for the food quality, service and passion the owners... More

If you want to escape the tourist traps on 5th but want somewhere within walking distance, which is a little oasis, then this is a must! My husband had the fillet mignon with green beans and mash which was cooked to absolute perfection. Equally good was my Thai chicken curry and there was a choice of fish or beef too.... More

We went to Oh La La on 30th April 2015 for my wife's birthday whilst we were on holiday in Playa. On arrival she was wished a happy birthday and taken to a lovely quiet table that they had decorated for her. The food was fantastic, fresh and beautifully presented, the service superb and you really get the feeling they... More

We went for a special honeymoon meal having read good reviews. Everything about it was amazing and it more than lived up to expectations. The decor is amazing, the host very welcoming and food simply outstanding. Service was very attentive, but not at all intrusive. The menu has a range of dishes to cater for a variety of tastes; even... More

Absolutely stunning food in a quaint little restaurant. Very well priced too. We booked in advance and told them we were going to be there on our honeymoon. They made us a special desert on the house as a treat. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Playa del Carmen.

Oh Lala was great. It's tucked away off of the main 5th Avenue, which is definitely a good thing as 5th Avenue is very touristy and commercial and a bit in your face. Oh Lala in comparison was calm and pretty and very relaxed. We had great service and the food was the best that we had during our 9... More
