We ate here as part of our Riviera Adventours trip. The food and ambiance were awesome. The Stuffed Chili and passionfruit margarita were amazing. We were stuffed by the time the delicious desserts arrived. We will go back next visit to this area.

Wonderful Palapa Restaurant since 1982 with 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, calmer, fish and chicken fajitas is Superb. The ceviche made of fresh fish, shrimp, lobster, octopus, and lemon is also exceptional. The most relaxing place to laze in a hammock after a delicious feast. Oscar & Lalos buys local Fresh Seafood from fishermen. Oscar & Lalos has locally Grown Organic Greens and Local Fresh Free Range Chickens and Beef from Monterey. Oscar & Lalos has Fresh Raw ingredients in the recipes, they don't like process food. Oscar & Lalo's serves Mexican, Seafood, International and Yucatan Cuisine with healthy cooking methods and lots of flavors. Oscar & Lalos Famous Margaritas & Cocktails are made with only fresh fruits, 100% Tequila and no corn syrup.
