The last time we travelled to Playa del Carmen, we didn't plan ahead and weren't able to get a reservation. So, this year we made reservations as soon as our travel plans were arranged. I wanted one night out to feel special and "fancy." We started with the cheese plate and cocktails. I could have stopped right there and been... More

Four of us ate outside at 6:30. It was a lovely evening surpassed only by the fabulous food and service. Hubby and I had Sangria, Oh Lala salad, and butter soy tuna. All of it was terrific. We're going back again next week.

We started our visits to Oh Lala in 2016 and they were very special. This year we enjoyed the same excellence of service and food. Very impressed that the high standard has been maintained and perhaps an increased level of sophistication. The restaurant provides an excellent setting, food and service for all occasions and special events. The wine list is... More

Cosy little place done up with taste and serving a refined cuisine with a friendly but courteous service. The flavours were incredible as was the freshness of the products. No loud music nor other annoying incidents when you are asked to pose for a photo or purchase this or that as often happens in Playa .... Very warm welcome &... More

#1 restaurant in PDC and was a fantastic experience. I booked 6 weeks in advance when I booked our flights - only reservation I could get was 9:30 which actually wasn't that big a deal (late appetizer on the beach kept us going!). Next time I check for a reservation BEFORE I book my flights - it's that good! We... More

Reading the reviews, we thought this would be a great restaurant but it fell short. The food was average and the menu was limited. Plus, they charged an extra $50 to our bill with items we didn't order. Probably won't be back.

We waited to make a reservation at this restaurant based on the reviews that noted a reservation well in advance was needed. In our case, we call the morning of and was put on a cancellation list for the same night. They came through and we enjoyed a beautiful dining experience that night. The menu is extensive, with a mix... More

We usually go to Playa at least once a year and always include a meal at Oh LaLa. This years experience was as good as any of the previous meals we have had. From the wait staff, to the selections, to the quality it is one of the best meals we have had anywhere.
