Celebrated anniversary while on vacation and looking forward a special place- we found it here! Food was the beat of our trip, skilled hostess made the evening flawless. Butter soy tuna was delightfully prepared and octopus was grilled to perfection. Curry was amazing as well. And free dessert!

Oh lala is a dinner that we look forward to every 5-12 months. My wife and I are foodies and are always impressed by the quality of food and the service everytime. We always get the grilled octopus because they do it better than everywhere we have been in the world. Every appetizer is awesome and we usually jut do “rock, paper, scissors” to decide because they are all that good. I had lamb this visit and it was incredible. I always ask my wife how could the best food we eat in the world be in playa del Carmen. We don’t understand how, but we believe it

This is a wonderful restaurant and we do love it and perhaps my scores do not adequately reflect this for which I apologise.
However, what they have done with the prices is just ridiculous. Our waiter was new which was absolutely not his fault but service was poor and waiting times significant.
The cheapest bottle of wine is 940 pesos and a 10oz steak will set you back 1050. It’s Playa del Carmen, not Las Vegas.
It’s a lovely spot and they did make a very nice gesture for our Anniversary.
Sadly we will not return as cost vs value they’ve lost their way and only hope they find their way back.
Once a hidden gem, sadly no more.

This place is a must. Every time we visit Playa del Carmen we eat here. Julia the hostess is wonderful as are Nico and Luis the servers. Julia's husband is the talented chef that creates amazing dishes. We actually ate at Oh LaLa twice this trip. The menu is so well designed that you will not run out of options for more than one visit. The food is not only delicious but the presentation is flawless. The chef's attention to detail in presentation is perfection. Anyone who dines there will get their moneys worth plus!!!

The food and presentation just might have been the best I have ever had! The tuna dish was definitely the most perfectly cooked ever! The salad and vegetables were beautiful and so well flavored. The spun sugar decoration on the tuna plate was a beautiful surprise. To compensate for no gluten bread, I was given a beautiful salad which was a special surprise. The manager let us watch the chef making the spun sugar basket
For such a delicious., elegantly presented meal, I can see why this restaurant has survived the times.Our waiter was fantastic making gluten free selections.
$97 for our meal including a glass of wine for each of us and the tip was well worth the price. Oh LaLa was a block off of 5th Av.

This was a return trip for us and we again were very pleased. The service is impeccable and the food was absolutely delicious. My mojito Berry was one of the best drinks I'd ever had. Portions were very generous. My husband and I each had a different tuna dish and the ahi was superb. We have to travel about 20 minutes to the restaurant but it is well worth it.

This restaurant continues to be one of our favorites in Playa. Slow the night we were there, but due to Covid, so many places are running slow. It didn’t matter...it just slowed more time to chat with us and enjoy my husband’s birthday celebration as we celebrate his birthday every year here.

Always excellent service, ambiance and food. They never disappoint. A memorable experience as usual...until next year!

Went here because this was recommended as one of the best restaurants in PDC. The service is excellent and the food was very good. I had the tenderloin and my daughter had the filet. I would recommend the filet over the tenderloin, for both tenderness and flavor. The drinks and red wine blend (recommended) were very good as well. The total bill for shrimp appetizer, tenderloin, filet, two glasses of wine and two cocktails was only $139.00 USD before tip. I found this very reasonable.

The phrase "oh la la" does not even begin to describe the reaction our taste buds had to this amazing meal prepared by the chef! This small restaurant tucked into the street immediately meets you with vibes of sophistication and class, and the food definitely lives up to it! My husband and I were "wow" ed with each subsequent course, and were able to have a great conversation with the wait staff. We were so glad we spent an evening here to bask in the deliciousness that is Oh La La!
