My wife and I had the fortune of dining at Oh Lala! 2 times during our 4 night stay in Playa. Fortunately for us, someone cancelled their reservation and we got in a 2nd time. Before commenting on the food, I have to comment on the staff. Adrian (I am sure I butchered the spelling) was amazing, making recommendations that... More

But we were so disappointed after the meal. Firstly, my husband wanted to make a reservation online but it showed all tables were booked till next year February. But when we were... More

This was our third visit of the season, and it just keeps exceeding our expectations. The Oh La La salad is over the top, as are the garlic shrimp and octopus salad. Our server, Barbar, sets the bar(no pun intended) very high as attentive and helpful. We love the ambiance and will return as often as we can.

We went to Oh Lala last night and had a great evening of food. Our waiter was very helpful with discussing the menu and giving us ideas and suggestions. I had the butter soy tuna and it was the lightest flavorful tuna that I have every tasted. It was tender and perfectly cooked. I had the grilled vegetables on the... More

We had a wonderful meal and everything we ate was delicious. The tuna was so good as was the sea bass special. We also were given a complimentary anniversary dessert! Great way to end our vacation!

Last year, we had the pleasure for a small intimate dinner experience with friends. This year, we all decided to book 2 reservations while on vacation. Again we were not disappointed. The moment you walk in, you receive such excellent service. The food was again amazing to say the least. The restaurant has only 9 tables, so you have to... More

The food fits the name. All good! What can I say but excellent. Book ahead because you can't get in spur of the moment. It's worth it!

So happy we found this place. Delicious and worth the price. Something I didn't expect to find in Playa and I'm so glad I did. We were just going to have a Mon each but decided to get all 3 courses and a great bottle of wine. Owners are the staff and do a wonderful job servicing everyone. We hope... More
