We ate here 3 times on our week vacation. I could not get enough of the Cerviche! The margaritas were fantastic and if you go after 6 pm you can sit out in the garden which is absolutely magicall.

This was our second visit to Tulum, and I had read good reviews about Oscar y Lalo the last time we were here, but we didn't have time to stop by. So, this time, on our way from Cancun to Tulum, we decided to give it a try. It was a worthwhile stop. First off, the grounds are very nice,... More

Have eaten here a couple times in multiple visits to the area. Its definitely one of our favorites. If you are staying in Solimon Bay its especially convenient. Food is very good. Service is as well. Its especially nice if you can sit outside. There is a simple play area for smaller kids as well. But be forewarned, there does... More

We were in Playa del Carmen on a family trip and were recommended Oscar & Lalo by our driver that took us to Tulum to see the ruins. We were very pleasantly surprised as the food and drinks were truly excellent and we felt very comfortable at the restaurant. The owner was so attentive to our table and made sure... More

Lovely, romantic setting. We really wanted to sit outside in the jungle setting but were advised by the staff that the mosquitos were awful and to stay inside. We took theri advice and were very thankful. Gourmet cuisine and menu and prices were still reasonable. Only issue was that some dishes were not very hot but otherwise everything was excellent....

From the moment you walk through the Huge wooden doors at the front entrance and walk over a fantastic creek via the wooden bridge you know you are in for a great dining experience. Not only is their food fantastic but their specialty drinks are amazing. Made from all fresh fruits and herbs you will have a hard time deciding... More

The atmosphere in the restaurant is lovely, both inside and out. We were just in Mexico in March for 10 days and the food was so delicious we went twice. Service is fantastic with a lovely personal touch. I recommend this restaurant just about 15 minutes from both Akumal or Tulum! Fabulous...

You may drive by Oscar and Lalo's a number of times, as we did, and wonder what type of place it is behind that entrance. I can tell you that it is wonderful! It has been there many years and is now hosted by Lalo's daughter, Virginia. Great atmosphere, great food choices, great flavors, great service, great drinks and just... More

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.
