“Best place to eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014

Recently my wife and I spent a week on Playa del Carmen.

We ate on several Restaurants, and none compares with Oh Lala.

The service is impeccable, the atmosphere is great (nice taste on decoration) and the food is delightful.

We tried a cheese plate as starter, the grilled tuna and butter soy tuna steaks and a Pinot Noir wine (Louis Jadot).

I highly recommend this place.

“Best place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014

This place was lovely. Super small and chic. Owner/chef was adorable and the food was fantastic. I had the tuna in a soy/butter sauce over mashed potatoes. Best meal of my week. Very nice wine list also. The wine at my resort was not good, so I was very glad to get one of my favorite sauvignon blancs. Thank heavens!!

“Absolutely the most wonderful dining experience ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

Mikaela and George and the staff at oh lala are truly amazing. My wife and I experienced not one but two wonderful dining experiences at oh lala..after the first visit we had to go back. There was not one thing I could possibly be negative about. They have managed to take care of every detail, amazing food, atmosphere, presentation and incredible staff..dont change a thing! Our second visit even out did the first one - and that is truly rare for any restaurant to do.
