Description: Wonderful Palapa Restaurant since 1982 with a pebble floor, mayan sculptures, waterfalls, hammocks, exotic birds, a peaceful garden with a fantastic jungle setting. Excellent Seafood, Authentic Mexican and Yucatecan Cuisine. World Famous "Lalo's Special", a dish made with fresh shrimp, lobster, conch, fish and chicken fajitas is Superb. The ceviche made of fresh fish, shrimp, lobster, conch and lemon is also exceptional. The most relaxing place to laze in a hammock after a delicious feast.

We had an early lunch at Oscar and Lalo's. Everyone's meal was fabulous and margaritas were enjoyed by all. As a bonus for those travelling with children, there was a PLAYGROUND that was visible from the outdoor seating area. Solid food, nice atmosphere, we will come back.

We had the privilege of stopping at Oscar and Lalo's during a tour and it was a great unexpected authentic Mexican lunch. Honestly, the best meal we has on our vacation and we stayed at a 5 star hotel. The atmosphere is tropical quaint jungle with details like the table settings and fresh coconut water right out of the coconuts... More

The food was very nice, but the wait was quite long and we were seated at the biggest circular table ever (we were 8). Drinks were good and the service was friendly. A little pricier than other local restaurants, but not excessive.

We enjoyed being entertained by a small spider monkey on our table, she drank tea from my glass. It was so much fun! Food and service was excellent. It was nice to visit with Lalo's son in law, he and his wife are doing a great job carrying on the family tradition. We look forward to our next visit.

Good sea food. A bit pricey for the place. Had the Lalos plate. We also had The three types of ceviche.

My wife and I thought this was an excellent restaurant! They were friendly, very attentive, and the four course meal was huge and awesome! We did not get sick and felt that the food was clean. They also made us a juice drink that went along with the coconut water, which was massive and very good! I would highly recommend... More

We ate here 3 times during our 6 day stay. It was awesome food! LOVED their mango salsa! we ate out in the open under a large palapa each time we went. Enjoyed the slight breeze too. I loved their watermelon water! We don't drink alcohol, so this was a great option for us as we were tired of drinking... More

We stayed in the Soliman Bay area recently and went to Oscar and Lalo a number of times while there. Be prepared to pay cash despite the signage for Visa/MC. Be prepared for 1-2 kinds of beer despite what the menu says. Stick with the basics like ceviches or tacos. And the best thing about Oscar & Lalo? OMG ..the... More
