Great food. Best of PDC.

My husband and I were super lucky to find a last minute reservation for Oh Lala. We had high hopes based on the reviews we had read, and the place did not disappoint. The service was great. The recommendations (seared tuna for me, curry for my husband, and a pairing wine) were right on. The food... read more

Ok. First tip is you have to book in advance to avoid a long wait. Second tip. If you are from the UK then expect the food to be very different to what you are used to in England. For example. A chicken burrito will not be filled with spicy chicken, mexican rice, kidney beans, topped with sour cream and... More

We have eaten at Oh Lala! twice now. The first time was April 2014 for my husband's birthday. The service and food were both amazing and they made his birthday very special. We sent our daughter and her husband there in their honeymoon and they loved it too. This year we went with friends and again weren't disappointed - the... More

We had dinner at Oh Lala, though it is said to be very busy we managed to get a booking one day before, but at an later hour (21:30). All the food we had was remarcable, steak and tuna cooked exactly as we asked. We served the wine they offered us, and that was nice as well. My parents had... More

We have visited the restaurant on our wedding anniversary as the number of positive reviews has made us interested to see if it is as good as described. Although I found the menu a little bit too much of everything (it mixes Italian, French, Indian and Thai cousins just to name a few - although it does clasify itself as... More

This was rated as one of the best restaurants in Playa De Carmen so I had to go when I was back in town. Loved it!!! It's a small restaurant with about 8 or so tables so make a reservation. It's chef owned and you can tell by the great food coming out of the kitchen. My husband had the... More

You haven't lived till you've eaten here! And that is hardly an exaggeration. We had seared tuna, soy butter tuna (truly amazing), New Zealand lamb and Thai fish curry. Every single dish was really tasty. The service and atmosphere were also great. A little pricey compared to other local places but well worth it. This ranks among the best places... More

We travel often to Playa and try to always search out new places for dinner....this restaurant is one of the, if not THE best restaurant for dinner that we have ever experienced. Great service. Large portions. Varied menu. We've been there 3 times in 2 weeks and each night was exceptional!

This was my second time to Oh LaLa. I love the intimate setting of the place (for this same reason, make sure you do a reservation if you are planning to go), I think food was better this time than the first but I’m not sure if this is because my first time there I arrived with a lot of... More

As local business owners and young family, we rarely find time to go on a date. Recently, we had family visiting that coincided with our 4-year anniversary.
