Incredible meal

Be warned, you must place a reservation for this restaurant WELL ahead of time as there are only about 8 tables. I had read the online reviews and set up our reservation through the website about 4-6 weeks ahead of time. The wait staff was nice and accommodating. The wine was incredible and very... read more

We went here on a Wednesday night. We didn't have reservations, so they told us to come back in an hour. It's a little off of 5th Avenue, but not so far that you don't feel safe or that you need to take a taxi. Our dinner was amazing. We ordered a bottle of wine (Casa Madero Chardonnay). For appetizers... More

Myself and my partner visited this place while we were on holiday for my girlfriends birthday. I found this place on here and after a simple e-mail was able to book a table and found them to be very polite. We arrived to be greeted by a lovely lady who wished my girlfriend happy birthday which was a nice touch.... More

We learned about this restaurant last year. The owners are so lovely and the food is exceptional. If you visit Play del Carmen, dining at Oh Lala is a must. The first thing we did after booking our trip to Playa this year was to reserve a table at Oh Lala. We had the lamb dish which melts in your... More

i made a reservation for 4 people several weeks ago to celebrate my husbands birthday. Upon arrival he was greeted with "happy birthday" from all the staff and we were seated at the best table which was decorated! My husband was thrilled. The meal was very good. The table got 2 orders of lamb chops, tuna, and surf and turf.... More

Went here alone to celebrate my birthday and boy was it good. Had the mushroom appetizer and the seared tuna meal, with a complimentary chocolate mousse. Servers were attentive, but also respected my space which was much appreciated.

I took my wife there for a special occasion and it was very pleasant. The service is outstanding and the food is great. I had the tuna steak that is so juicy and delicious and ordered the jasmine rice that's also a great choice. I recommend this restaurant because it's a local place and the food is great.

I will begin my review by saying that we chose this restaurant after reading the glowing reviews and perusing the menu on the Ooh LaLa website. We wanted a really special meal for my birthday, and this appeared to be the best that Playa had to offer. Based on the feedback on this site, we were expecting a really outstanding... More
