Went here as a family, the setting is quite nice but nothing special. Service was good and staff were friendly. We had mango and shrimp cerviche to start and it was delicious. Unfortunately the same can’t be said for the mains, the presentation was nice...but taste not so. Neither my or I finished our food and were left disappointed when we had to settle the bill. Overall not as expected.More

Awesome food in a beautiful location! The mole was the best I have ever had! Delicious guacamole and light crisp wonderful cucumber salad! Also the Mayan spiced snapper was out of this world! Highly recommend stopping here!

After reading all the positive reviews we felt we could not go wrong at Oscar and Lalo's. Very few customers but yet slow service and my steak was inedible! Tasted like rubber and as if it had been microwaved. Can not recommend.

I just love this place. I have made it a point to eat here on my last 4 visits to Mexico. I hope to continue this tradition. Virgina has been there to greet and take care of us each time I've returned. Super sweet genuinely...kind senorita. Romantic & welcoming environment. She tries her best to source locally and hires an amazing kitchen staff. This food is made with love. Simply a highlight of each trip. Muchos Gracias Oscar & Lola to your continued successMore

If you want a quiet place near Tulum that is not so expensive this is the place. It sits un the jungle. Service was friendly and attentive. Kudos for excellent frozen margaritas. We enjoyed the platter that comes with shrimp, calamari, flank steak and chicken....Great place to unwind with friends.More

We visited this restaurant 3 years ago, decided to try it again and took our local friends for dinner New Year’s day. The menu is printed on some paper and changed greatly from our initial visit. It is very limited to what it use to...be. The only fish they had was Tilapia which is farmed from China. On the Caribbean and no fresh fish ! My friend ordered Shrimp Ceviche which was $385 p and half the size of what you would get elsewhere at double the price. It didn’t taste as good as any other ceviche we have tried. He is Mexican from this area and we live here permanently so have some experience in tasting ceviche. Since they didn’t have any good fish I opted for the Shrimp Mango as did both our wives. They only had one chicken entre ! Very limited choices. At a cost of $385 p we got 5 shrimp with some rice and veggies , about half a cup of each ! They had 2 desserts on the menu, Chocolate cake and Flan, which they were out of at 6:30 in the evening and only 2 tables were occupied. We definitely will not return and will be telling our friends to avoid wasting their money here.More

Just happened to stop here on drive from Playa del Carmen to Cancun. So glad we did. Food was excellent - huge portions so maybe share an appetiser then get a main each. Mojito was so good. Staff were lovely, friendly and attentive. Added bonus...- the most gorgeous car, ossy, lives there too. Absolutely recommend.More

We saw the signs on the road advertising this restaurant and just drove past it. Went to an attraction nearby with my son and his family and decided to give it a try. This, as I said to the owner when we left, was a...meal we'll be talking about for years. The food was fabulous, the service excellent and the ambience relaxing. DO NOT PASS IT BY. We only have a few more days here, and we're definitely going again. I may adopt the chef.More

Virginia is by far the best host around. Family owned, exquisite food, great atmosphere and reasonably priced. I would recommend Oscars & Lalo to any group that wants a great meal in an inviting atmosphere on the edge of the jungle.

We visited Oscar & Lalo on our last trip to Tulum just to get away from the touristic area where the craziness was happening and we were delighted by the awesome service and the quality of food and drink we were served. I ordered a...passion fruit margarita and it was the best I've had. We also highly recommend the Spanish Octopus and the mixed ceviche. The scenery was awesome and the outside seating area was perfect for social distancing.More

This was our third time at Oscar and Lalo when you arrive they bring you to the outside / backyard dinning patio which is awesome on my opinion with a light breeze, but we are here to talk about their food. The fresh coconut hart...salad transporte you to places and flavors that you never knew existed and work together. The coconut shrimp with mango sauce it’s delicious. The shrimp bacon wrap, I had to order twice, that’s is how good it is. Yep I know what is so good about shrimp wrap on bacon, I guess you are going to have to try to discover the “secret”. The fresh fillet of fish with mango sauce it’s so refreshing. Their “tres leches” desert is moister and delicious. Couple miles before Tulum coming from Cancun, pay attention for the signs on the road and do yourself a favor, stop by and tell us if we are wrong.More
