With a total of 9 tables divided between the indoor and outdoors seating, and an open kitchen, Chef George, Mikaela, and their staff, make sure that every visit to Oh Lala, International Cuisine by George, Is a unique and a delicious one.

“great food and service”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

We went to the place twice (both times we made reservations and were glad because they do not seat people if there is no reservation). We tried almost everything on the menu and loved it all. Special mention deserves Tuna with very flavorful mashed potatoes, salad with smoked salmon, mushroom appetizer and pear in reduced red vine sous desert. Stuff is very helpful and friendly. We are looking forward to our visit there next year.

“Amazing!”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

Everything from the service to the food was TOP NOTCH! Amazing menu, great wine, great service, great prices, and GREAT food! My husband and I had a hard time finding the place (maybe the 2 Calle 14?) and the taxi was not helpful. We found this place on TripAdvisor as well as another couple that enjoyed it at our condo, we thanked them thoroughly after our dinner. Can't say enough great things!!

“Not much more to add, you need to try this place”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

This restaurant was fantastic. The owners made our anniversary dinner so special. Great food, great people, nice modern décor. If something looks good, just try it, you wont be disappointed. I would highly recommend to add this to your list for reservations in Playa Del Carmen.

“Simlpy delicious”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

We spend a great time and had an amazing dinner in Oh Lala. The owner takes time to explain the menu and recommend dishes. All the staff was very friendly and the food was simply delicious! Their Butter Tuna is just perfect :)

“Food and service were AWESOME!”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

This restaurant was not on Viceroy's recommended list and we are so glad we took Trip Avisor's # 1 rating to heart and had dinner here. We are foodies. Michaela and her husband George were simply terrific. He is the chef and she runs the front of the house. Warm, welcoming and extremely knowledgable about food and wine. We started with the mussels.....clean and remarkably delicious; and the tuna focaccia-out of this world! Dinner was the soy tuna on the menu which was spectacular and the special lobster and grouper with a spicy and sweet chutney. Don't miss this overall great experience! Ps...we forgot our camera and they had called ahead to our hotel to let us know. Wishing Michaela and George many years of success!
