We made reservations at Oh Lala based on trip advisor ratings. We were not disappointed! We had read how difficult it was to get a reservation but by a fluke we had the place to ourselves. We had wonderful service and attention. The food was outstanding. We had the mussels for an appetizer and the tuna in soy butter and... More

We had high expectations from the #1 restaurant in Playa and we were overwhelmed by how good the food is. Pictures just don't do justice to the dishes. The staff was incredibly courteous and professional, very attentive and helpful to guide us through our choices. We had the mushrooms with cream and the mussels for starters and they were superb!...

I was treated to dinner in OhLaLa and my expectations were quite high... It turned out apart from the prices, it was not a great experience. Food was average, wanna be creative, pretty expensive and service snobby. I would not be going back.

Excellent food and even better service, very enjoyable night. We managed to book only a couple of hours before and I think we where very lucky. The best restaurant I have been too.

We love coming to this restaurant. The food and service are impeccable! This is one of the few restaurants that has an air conditioned enclosed area to enjoy your meal in. On prior visits they only served wine but now there is a full bar available. This trip we had the Mango Shrimp salad, Mussels in white wine, Butter Soy... More

If your in town you MUST try this place!! All of our food was cooked to perfection. We had lobster, scallops, muscles, and shrimp and they were fresh and seasoned just right.

What else can we say about this restaurant that had not been said yet. Still the greatest food, served the perfect way. Chef-owner George and his lovely wife are still at work every night helped by their friendly staff. Our personal preference: You can sit indoor, but if you have the chance to reserve for an outside table, it's even... More
