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.

“Great Seafood!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2013

I think we've driven by Oscar & Lalo's three or four times during a few of our Yucatan visits, we talked about eating there, but it never quite worked out. Well, it finally worked out on our latest trip. We were driving back to Playa Del Carmen from spending the morning at Coba. It was a Monday and we were concerned it might be closed, but the restaurant was open.

As it turned out, we were really glad we stopped there for lunch. It was a very nice restaurant experience. We shared a few entrees and in particular the seafood stuffed pepper was truly outstanding.

We will definitely find an excuse for driving down 307 to eat at Oscar & Lalo's again.

“Love seafood!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

All the food was delicious, but the ceviche was amazing! We were a group of 6, and everyone was pleased. The locations looks non-descript from the outside, but was really nice inside with excellent service.

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

We went for lunch, after one of their amazing excursions! The food was very good, the atmosphere is amazing! It's so serene sitting in a tropical jungle, with hammocks all around you and have lunch.

“So nice, we ate there TWICE !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

Had a great time here, food was Off-The-Charts Authentic ! The place was just great and very laid-back. Kids could run around and enjoy the grounds, play on the play fort and swing in hammocks.

Did I mention the Food ? GREAT

“What a beautiful place, it was exactly what we were looking for! A little paradise in the jungle!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013

Virginia was wonderful, she welcomed us into the restaurant even though it was not open yet. We ordered yummy Margaritas, mine was the Mango and I have to say "best I have ever had". Our Lunch was one of the best meals of our trip! If you want to experience the best Mexico has to offer--stop in and enjoy!!
