Having been to Mexico on many occasions we have tried many of the the fine dinning restaurants on both coasts. My wife and I both agreed that Oh Lala was by far the best meal and service we have experienced. A special thank you to Norma and Tanit for the excellent service. Reserve early you won't be disappointed.

An excellent restaurant with great service, great food and a relaxing atmosphere. Although it is on the pricier side, the difference is noticeable in all áreas from the quality of the food to the service provided. This is the 2nd time I have been there and both times the overall experience has been top quality. I highly recomend this restaurant.

We make a point to get reservations before we arrive. You won't be disappointed. We never are. We had the beef tenderloin 2 different ways (bernaise and a demi glaze) both fantastic. Chocolate dessert was warm and delicious!

Husband and I really enjoyed our meal. We ordered the Thai curry with shrimp and Lobster dishes. Both very tasty and presentation exceptional. Service was professional and friendly. Well done Oh Lala! P.S. I saw the manager go out of his way to help a couple wanting to dine but he couldn't accommodate as restaurant was fully booked. He referred... More

After reading all the reviews we reserved a table a couple of weeks before our trip to Playa. The food and service was impeccable. I had the lamb Cutlets which were cooked to my taste perfectly.

Oh Lala is a great dining experience. Have been a few times and consider for any important moments in our lives as an excuse to go for a meal. The food is fantastic, and the service impeccable. George and Mikaela know how to do it right.

I am a travel blogger so I go straight for the BEST. Every time I make my way to Playa del Carmen, I visit this place. It would not be a complete trip without it.

We visit Oh LaLa at least once every winter. The food and service continue to be excellent. My wife had the fig salad and the sea bass special, both were outstanding. I had the mussels and butter soy tuna. The mussels were tasting and sauce was great with toast points. The tuna was seared to perfection.
