“Beautuful new location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

we couldn't find it at first because they moved Aug 7 and we hadn't realized. Thankfully a women was coming out of the salon next door and she directed us just around the corner. The new location has about 8 seats outdoors on a beautiful covered patio and another 14 or so inside the trendy, air con interior. We had the seared tuna and thai fish curry. Both were fab. The mushroom appetizer was just ok. The table next to us had the lobster and snapper special which looked amazing. They must have been impressed because they seemed to be instagramming all their dishes lol. service is impeccable. Very proper without being stuffy. I'm glad we went back a second time after not being able to find it.

“Do not skip it!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

What can I say?! Food was absolutely delicious. The tuna stake with the must tasty mash potatoes I've ever had!
The atmosphere is good and the service is more than expected! We had a chat with the chef. Really nice guy who recommend us on a scuba dive club.
Perfect dinner!

“simply the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

We know this restaurant from last year and looked out to return there. George and Mikaela, a very nice couple and owners of the restaurant had recognized us immediately, and gave us a warm welcome. It was feeling like coming home. The service still was topclass; the food super and the company, all made it again a pleasant experience. That pleasant that we went for dinner for 7 times over 14 days. Since the frequency of our visits, George somethimes proposed to prepare a special meal, not from the menu, although it was very attractive. We appreciate very much. These meals were excellent. George is a very good cook. The Oh lala restaurant is getting to move to a larger house arround the corner. I guess the new restaurant will be like a jewel, because the owners pay special attention to the design and fitting up of the interior. This is not at the cost of the prices of the dishes, on the contrary, they are more than worth it. The other 7 days of our stay we compared with other good restaurants, but for us Oh lala still remains the number one of Playa.

“Exceeded All My Expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Based on the reviews, I decided to take my fiancée here for our 5th year anniversary dinner and sent an email to the restaurant letting them know of the special occasion. Mikaela and chef George immediately responded and gave several very good suggestions on how the make the night more eventful. They even helped source wine that was not on the menu. From the chocolate covered strawberries to the handmade written card with dessert, from start to finish it was an outstanding meal that we will not forget.

While the food was exceptional, the entire staff had an incredible attention to detail. One that is very reminiscent of the type of service one may find at any Michelin star restaurant

“Incredible!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013 via mobile

I can seriously say Oh La La is one of the 5 best restaurants I have ever been to in my life. Don't miss the Tuna Focaccia! The steak is also amazing!! Service couldn't be better! I went there with my girlfriend. We both had two courses and payed under $100 USD including a bottle of wine. Oh La La definitely deserves to be the #1 rated restaurant in Playa
