For all of you that are tired of the 5th avenue junk food places, you should go and eat here. Quiet, off the beaten path, just an overall upscale restaurant.

The food was great, Julia and Luis were also very exceptional. Everything was cooked well and before we left they prepared a complimentary dessert I didn't expect. Great service and food.

We have been going to Oh Lala for approximately 14 years and never had a bad meal, always outstanding. This year we were met at the door by the owner, Mikaela, and her new son. She kept him up just so we could meet him....Our two dinners were chicken curry and I had the lamb chops. Outstanding. We went back on our last night and again had the curry and lamb chops. I have never had lamb chops that you could cut with a fork. Amazing. The service is outstanding. It is amazing the low rating. How the heck can a hamburger or rib joint be rated higher.More

It is always a pleasure to find a true jewel of a restaurant when travelling. Where everything is just perfect. The food was sublime in an abundance of creativity. The service was exceptional. I cannot recommend it highly enough. And for gods sakes have the...fig salad.More

Hidden gem doesn’t do this restaurant justice. This is a hidden diamond. My boyfriend got the lamb and I the filet mignon with foie Gras. I affirmed with my boyfriend several time that it was the best food I’ve ever eaten. Perfectly cooked how I...like and flavors, absolutely perfect. Followed up with the cheesecake and it was the perfect night. This is a 5 star restaurant experience. If you don’t come here during your trip to Playa, you’ve missed the best food of the town.More

This was one of the best restaurants I've eaten at - and I have traveled the world. TOP NOTCH FOOD. We were seated by the very lovely Julia in an outdoor table in a small garden - just lovely. There is also indoor dining. The...waiter and Julia wore masks and we felt very safe. Oh Lala! is very close to 5th Avenue with all the noise and partying, but you can't hear it from Oh Lala! So if you're looking for an amazing meal at a quiet restaurant, but near the action later on - this is THE PLACE! Julia - we got a cab on our own, but thank you for offering to help us!More

One of our favorite restaurants in Playa. Our third time here. Staff are friendly and welcoming. We started off with a grilled shrimp special (the appetizer portion of 4). They were large and very tasty. We then ordered two entrees to share between the two...of us. I ordered the butter soy tuna and my husband ordered the steak foie gras. Both were wonderful but the tuna is our favorite thing on the menu. We splurged and had an apple tart for desert. OMG, it was so good! My husband had two glasses or wine and a coffee but I had a white wine sangria. The sangria was surprisingly good, not too sweet which was a plus. I highly recommend this place. Reservations are suggested.More

Best food in Mexico hands down! We had the Oh la la salad which was fabulous with a honey mustard dressing. Also the Filet with Bernaise sauce, potatoes and asparagus. Plus the apple tartlet with vanilla ice cream. Accompanied by French wines. The manager, Julietta...was charming as well. Wish I could go right back again. And really not expensive.More

I’m from Midtown ATL, and I’d describe this place as more fit for foodies. I’d kind of compare it to a smaller, intimate King + Duke in Buckhead (if you’ve ever been) but for upscale International cuisine. If I recall... More
