I have been to Tulum twice and have eaten at Oscar & Lalo each time. The service is very friendly and the food is amazing! The backyard feels like you are in a little oasis!

Visited as finale of our Riviera Adventours trip to Sian Ka'an. We were greeted and shown to our table and enjoyed fabulous seafood and Mexican dishes. Lots of food, beautifully cooked and great service. A very nice end to a great day out.

Went there for dinner. Greeted as soon as we entered and taken to a table. All the staff were very friendly. It was low season so very few people there. Food was fresh and good. Large portions. Prices were reasonable for a nice sit down restaurant. Some people might be put off seeing a couple of cats wandering around the... More

We had a lovely lunch at this outdoor restaurant - all the seafood was cooked to perfection, the service was great and the jungle setting was very pleasant, with no mosquitoes.

The service was great but the food was just simply amazing. I highly recommend the ceviche! It is amazing probably the best ceviche i've ever had. The margaritas were fabulous, the 2 hour drive from Cancun was so worth it. will be coming here again on my next visit.

This place is a gem!!! We went there during our recent visit to Riviera Maya. We stayed at the Bahia Principe Tulum and just caught the "collectivo" ( local transportation that runs from Playa del Carmen to Tulum) cost us 60 pesos to get there, about $3.40 USD for both of us. It is an amazing little restaurant ! We... More

It's easy to walk in and feel the place is a little overdone and touristy. But the place is actually pretty good... Three of us went for lunch and drinks. My steak and veggies were tasty, tender and properly-cooked; cocktails were fresh - only place I saw that did real coconut meat/flakes on the rim of a pina colada. Easy... More

Description
Wonderful Palapa Restaurant since 1982 with a pebble floor, 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, octopuss and lemon is also exceptional. The most relaxing place to laze in a hammock after a delicious feast.
