Exquisite!

Small place - 8 tables. Went for 50th birthday celebration with family group of 4 adults. Great unpretentious service. Delicious food. Magical evening

We were here on Valentine's Day and enjoyed the most wonderful dinner from start to finish. The flavors are unbelievable. Make a reservation and then you won't be disappointed that you can't get in.

We had read the reviews and heard the small-talk around the pool about this quaint, little restaurant, so decided to try and get a reservation. Luckily there was a late cancellation, so we had our slot and arrived on time. The location is easily found on 14th between 10th & 15th. We were greeted warmly and shown our 2-top and... More

Wow, this was by far the best dinner we had in Playa. AMAZING food and service. So tiny and romantic and we were gifted with some Valentine's day treats at the end of the meal. We loved that the chef came out to say hello during our meal. We loved the salad and the lobster. Terrific. Can't wait to go... More

This is definitely a must go to restaurant when in Playa del Carmen. I had the tuna in a soy butter sauce and it was outstanding. This is a very small restaurant with only about 8 tables so reservations have to be made in advance. There is a website on which you can make reservations and George the owner, is... More

Ate here with a group of friends recently having read the TA reviews and made a reservation with plenty of notice! Upon Arrival at oh LaLa it's evident why it's number 1 out of all the places in playa. The staff greeted us so warmly and we were seated in a lovely outside table. Think low lighting and soft touches... More

We were lucky enough to enjoy Oh Lala 2 times during our vacation. George and his lovely wife Michaela run a fantastic eatery. Their passion for food and great service make this a must in Playa. Absolutely everything we tried was delicious. Our servers were outstanding. Make reservations as much in advance as possible as there are limited seatings. Can't... More
