Oh Lala was by far the best restaurant we visited during our 9 day visit to nearby Riviera de Maya. Food and wine was divine ( International menu) with different specials each day and beautifully presented. Staff were very attentive and if you want a change from taco's and the like go here. But book first, they are very busy... More

We rely on TripAdvisor for finding places to consider on our trips. Oh Lala was rated #1. We question the way some rankings are computed, but Oh Lala definitely deserves top billing. Everything was top notch and reasonably priced (especially by US standards) for such a great meal and service. It is a small restaurant so do get reservations ASAP.... More

My wife found this place online and saw that it was highly rated, so we gave it a shot for dinner. It is only open 4-5 hours a day for dinner and only has about 10 tables. Its located across from a parking garage which is handy if you are driving and within easy walking street of the main pedestrian... More

We went for dinner last night, the service and the ambience were impeccable as always. Fig salad was light and fresh. I had the best tuna ever. Medium rare done perfectly. Everyone's meal was excellent (short ribs, lamb and octopus). White wine was cold and red wine was slightly chilled. Great dining experience!

Visit: 8 May 2017 Staff was very attentive and offered excellent pairing suggestions. My spouse had a very favorable vegan curry dish while I thoroughly enjoy an excellent tuna dish. Our first of many more visits to Oh Lala to come. Now we know why it is number 1 on the Playa del Carmen TripAdivsor list. Prices were very reasonable.... More

Things started well, with the fig salad and a nice cocktail, but my main course - the special fish of the day was horrible. Snapper that smelled bad, tasted bad and the texture was like a dried sponge. I think this dish was meant to be made with Sea Bass - which probably would have been great - but with... More

We were only in Playa del Carmen for one day, so we decided to go Oh Lala for dinner. It was phenomenal! We didn't make a reservation so we had to wait about 15 minutes for a table, but the staff was so friendly and accommodating. No attitude. The food was excellent. Small portions but perfectly done. I had the... More
