This tiny restaurant is a diamond! We didn't expect to find anything as good(coming from the n.y. area) in Playa. The chef actually came out to discuss our meal with us to make sure he made it exactly as we wanted.Don't forget to make a reservation!

My bf, best friend and I enjoyed a celebratory dinner here last week. I made a reservation and was promptly confirmed for a Wed at 9:30pm. When we arrived the restaurant was fairly full which was a good sign! To cut to the chase... PROS Delicious mixed drinks especially their namesake mojito There was a gal (maybe owner or manager)...

We were staying at an all inclusive and wanted to experience one dinner out of the resort in Playa del Carmen. Based on Tripadvisor reviews we chose Oh Lala. We're very glad we did. The restaurant is a welcome oasis away from the hustle and bustle and noise of the main shopping street. The service is absolutely outstanding. The owners... More

The entire dining experience was A+ from reservations to dessert. The staff, food, wine & ambience all melded into a delightful evening.

This was our only disappointing meal in Playa. We had better meals at Yaxche, Plank, El Diez, and Cenacolo, all of which I recommend. The grilled shrimp and scallop appetizer we had was very good, but the entrees were awful. I had the tuna, which they claimed was Ahi. Maybe, but I've never had Ahi that was chewy and tasteless...

My wife and I have been traveling to Playa Del Carmen for 5 years now and thanks to the wonders of TripAdvisor, we found this gem of a restaurant 4 years ago. Mikaela & George opened Oh La La with such humble beginnings, When we first started dining here the restaurant had no roof and plastic tables and chairs. It... More

We went to oh lala! To celebrate my girlfriends birthday. We made our reservations two weeks in advanced and we are glad we did. It's a small be autiful decorated restaurant. We tried different things from the menú and all of them were great. Great service and atmosphere. Highly recommended

After a wonderful experience at this restaurant in December, we reserved for 2 more nights when we we were back in Playa last week! There were 5 of us and we were all most impressed (once again) by the food and service of Oh Lala. Chef George is incredible - especially when it comes to tuna!!! One of our group... More

As everyone else, my boyfriend and I were really looking forward to eating at this restaurant. We made our reservations 2 months in advance, yet did not receive a confirmation email. Thankfully we stayed close to the restaurant and were able to stop by the day of our reservation. We had indeed secured a table at this super-hyped restaurant and... More

The food is really good, no doubt. But this isn't the most memorable meal I have ever had, and maybe not even the best meal I've eaten in Playa (at least dollar for dollar). I was expecting more "show"-more of a welcome, and "here is how it works," "specialties," that kind of thing. Nada-"are you ready to order" came when... More
