Not much negative can be said about this tiny restaurant in playa del carmen that has not already been said. Server Adrian was wonderful! Delicious well prepared food ( the tuna in soy butter is really special ) . Prices reasonable for both food and wine. Go if you can !!

This is a very small restaurant so get your reservations in early if you want to dine here. The service is impeccable and the food is fabulous. The butter soy tuna is incredible.

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
