“Happy and full afterward”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

Ula Gula is perfectly located at the corner of 5th Ave and 10th street. The dining room is on the second floor and so there is a bit more breeze and they use a bunch of large fans to cool it. the service was excellent and the food was very good. i had a penne bolognese and others in our group had delicious pastas and meats. very well done!

“Great cocktails and people watching.”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

I was here last week with a good friend, we stoped for a drink and something to nibble.
We had delicious mojitos, mine had jaggermister and my friends mango they were delicious. We also had some house bread and a cheese platter. The staff was very friendly and the bar is well located. Within minutes we watch all of Playa go by our table. Tourists, Mariachis, music bands, tour guides, etc. It was fun and delicious at the same time. I have tried the food before and i remembered it was good too, maybe next time we'll stay for dinner.

“Best Pizza Ever!”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

Ula Gula located on Playa del Carmen's famous 5th Ave. on the corner of 10th St. Fantastic pizza, and quaint atmosphere, perfect location for watching the activities of the street. You never know what you will see on 5th Ave. Margarita, mmm not so good, but not horrible. My friend LOVED her ginger martini, and she had the seafood pizza, I had the pepperoni and cheeses, delicious combination of cheeses, and the sauce was wonderful. Service was outstanding! Highly recommend this as your dinner choice when visiting Playa del Carmen!

“Great Italian food. AMAZING service. ”
Reviewed June 20, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I enjoyed a great dinner here. The food was quite good and the service quality was the best we've had in Playa. I highly recommend the oven roasted pear salad. It was exceptional! Strong pours when it comes to wine. Excellent value for the money. You won't be disappointed if you're looking great vibe and a place for conversation.

Get an upper deck table and you get a superb view of the people traveling along 5th ave and freedom from the constant solicitations that are a part of the Playa Del Carmen experience.

Oddly, this restaurant is listed on Tripadvisor under Mexican. It isn't. It's as Italian as can be with a splash of fusion.

Highly recommended.
