Loved Everthing!

Three generation family ate dinner here at the 9:30 seating. Reluctant to eat so "late" but it was the only available seating. SO glad we waited! Started with drinks, a few martinis, great beer and lemonade for the two teens; all perfect. We then let Adrian, our waiter, "go fo it" and recommend... read more

One of my favorite restaurants to visit while in PDC. It's a great place for a romantic dinner with excellent food. The entire experience is great. I went there twice on my week long vacation in PDC. I really enjoy the little details they notice and the hot towel they bring out. The drinks are amazing. We had sangria, a... More

We made reservations 2 weeks ahead and I was so excited to dine at the #1 restaurant. Unfortunately, I as well as my husband were disappointed. The restaurant is small and intimate. We arrived 10 minutes early and had to wait outside on the sidewalk even though there were open tables. The wine was reasonably priced. The service was fine... More

We tried to visit Oh Lala in 2015 but they were fully booked. So we booked months ahead before we travelled and we are glad we did. Party of four and all enjoyed the excellent service, food and drink service. Starters varied from the octopus to salads. Main course from the seared tuna, the sable fish to the Thai fish... More

Up a little side street but easy to find. Very small, less than 30 covers so slightly lacking in atmosphere but food was outstanding.

Filet mignon superb! Service superb! Somewhat cold atmosphere and limited menu. Off the beaten path and tucked away. Check out the menu before you visit. Never did see owner George. Glad we experienced it.....likely wouldn't go back.

Managed to get in last night, arranged four days prior with the concierge at our condo. Our time was for 9:30 which, of course, is a fashionable time to dine in Playa. We were told the restaurant is now under new management and that George has started another venture. Did not have a frame of reference since it was our... More

This place is absolutely amazing. We took the Funghi Trifolati starter and even my boyfriend who's not crazy about mushrooms really loved it, it was delicious! Then took the filet mignon that was cooked to perfection and my boyfriend took something that tasted thai that was also excellent. The food was wonderful and so was the service. Our waiter was...
