From the food to the atmosphere to Virginia..... seriously made my entire trip to Mexico amazing!!! She told stories of the jungle that were soo intense and surreal, she created a sense of community, brought humanity to my visit... I fell in love with Tulum.....Virginia...made it home for me cannot wait to come back. The food was incredible, the salsa was soo fresh everything was beyond perfect.... do not go to Tulum without stopping at Oscar & Lalo’s. 💕More

Absolutely AMAZING food/people/atmosphere... had a vegan & gluten allergy in our group and they went above and beyond with helping find things that were accommodating. For us the seafood especially the HUGE shrimp and lobster was the highlight. Will be coming here everything we visit...Mexico best restaurant here by far!!!More

We had such a good time there last Valentine's Day we could not wait to go back this year. This year the ladies were not given a rose (very nice touch last year) also they did not offer the beet soup ☹ last year the...owner told us she only makes & serves it on Valentine's Day. I decided to get the fresh fish which was so dry & had no flavor, I barely ate any if it. Service was so slow, the table next to us brought this to someone's attention and I guess she must have gone back to the kitchen to see what was wrong. Only then did our waiter come over and say how sorry he was. The mosquitos were so awful once it got dark (no fault of the restaurant) that we just went inside & asked for our bill to pay so we never got to tell our waiter about the bad food. I was really disappointed and not sure what happenedMore

This highway stop is ideal after a beach day! Lots of parking, never crowded, and beautiful. We actually returned because my husband had the best octupus plate in Mexico ever. I think the secret ingredient was paprika. I enjoyed the cucumber salad and plantains as...I am plant based. A refreshing salad when your tired of veggie fajitas. This is not a budget stop. Nice and clean bathrooms. Amazing selection of craft beers. We had an issue with one server hence the three star. She needs more training would be my suggestion the owners.More

We drove by Oscar and Lalo several times during our stay in the Akumal area. As it was my sister and brother in laws last night we decided to go there for supper. Damn, we should have come sooner! We sat in the garden area...which was gorgeous. Our waiter was very attentive and helpful. The food was outstanding, some of the best I have ever had in Mexico. We had Salads and shrimp cocktail for starters which were excellent. For entrees we had Shrimp Kabobs, Coconut shrimp, Shrimp in mango sauce .... anyone seeing a theme here ;) and a Seafood and Gaujillo pepper dish. They were all great, but Seafood and Gaujillo dish was amazing. Ingredients were very fresh with nice touches like pea sprouts, edible flowers, etc. It was pretty quiet, even for a Tuesday evening. I encourage anyone in the area (between Akumal and Tulum) to check this place out, you will not regret it. Obtw, desert was a grande piece of chocolate cake with cappuccinos.More

We stayed at Jashita in Solimon Bay, so Oscar and Lalo was so convenient. Went 3 times. Excellent ceviche, and diverse fish on the menu. By night 3 I wanted to try something different and had the Mayan pulled pork, so happy I went off...the fish diet. Great value for top notch quality.More

Seafood platter for two an O&L specialty for a reason. Grouper lobster shrimp and a nice medley of vegetables expertly grilled Fried plantains and frijoles negra accents Just a real nice meal and it works out to about sixteen dollar entres. Great value for the...cost - I’ve spent so much more for food not a shadow of what these guys are doing Peg ordered pineapple ice cream with her chocolate cake. I was thinking where in the devil is pineapple ice cream going to come from. They fabricated it with pineapple from their own plantation. They grow their own produce and other products used in the restaurant and it comes through loud and clear in their menu selections The staff is pleasant and competent leaving little question of their professional interest in serving you a smashing meal I think you’ll like this place Lou and PeggyMore

Ate dinner here on our last night in Mexico. Best food of our whole two week trip to the Yukatan. Service was very good. Wish we had have found this restaurant sooner so we could have visited another time. Pineapple ice cream (served in a...pineapple) and coconut ice cream (served in a coconut) were divine.More

First of all, the restaurant is beautiful. We sat down at the same time as a large group, and they made sure the three of us got our order in first so we didn't have to wait, which was very thoughtful. I believe we spoke...to one of the managers, who was very enthusiastic about her dishes and her guest's experience. They were happy to make changes to our order and all of the food was excellent. Definitely stop by if you're in the area!More
