Great experience! Staff was awesome! Make my birthday dining experience very special. The food was exceptional. A great culinary experience.
Without question, the finest dining in Playa del Carmen. Wonderful food beautifully presented and attentive informed service.
Our must go to every time we come to Playa
The food was amazing. Fresh & great flavors. The service was impeccable. Best Dining experience in Playa by far.
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
Excelente lugar y la mejor comidas
Vale la pena visitarlo
Todo estuvo delicioso
Absolutely wonderful we will be back next time we are in Playa del Carmen!
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.
Took my girlfriend out for her birthday. The food, service and everything else was exceptional as I’ve come to expect. Although not inexpensive the valued is definitely there!
Such a special find! We loved it so much we ate there 3 times. On the higher price side for playa but worth every penny. Food, drinks, service and atmosphere are outstanding! We will return!
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!!!
Wonderful ambience, even better service and absolutely wonderful plates. All the way around, stellar!
Oh lala never lets me down. On our annual visits to playa del carmen we always incorporate a night at oh lala.
Service, food and ambiance continue to be outstanding.
Very cute place with fantastic service.
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.
Duck confit tacos makes a great app. Fantastic eats. High quality. Would go back 100%
This was our second time eating here, it is in our top three of all time restaurants!!
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!
We have been coming here for years and always get excellent food and service when we visit Oh lala! It is always at the top of my list when we are in Playa del Carmen!
Muchas gracias a todo el equipo. Nos la pasamos muy bien! Regresaremos
Excellent all in all the experience! Food was excellent and our serveur Claudia was amazing & knowledgeable. Claudia was the best part of our visit! Super friendly. Kudos to the chefs! Excellent meal. I will definitely be back & will recommend to friends. Thank you all! Especially Claudia for a wonderful evening ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
La comida está estupenda y el servicio increíble.
The food is stupendous and the service incredible
Best meal we had on our trip to Riviera Maya!
Servicio lento, comida excelente
We have visit Oh Lala so many times and have never been dissattisfied and not this time either. Hope to be back soon!
Always a great service
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.
un muy buen servicio , comida muy ricas, personal perfecto
Menu delightful. Incredible flavors. Beautiful presentation. Excellent service. Very welcoming. Our new favorite restaurant!
Excelente servicio y comida, todos son muy atentos, te preguntan si tienes alguna alergia para poder preparar adecuadamente tu platillo, te dan recomendaciones sobre que vino puedes combinar con tu comida... Definitivamente un lugar al que volvería a ir 😁
Una excelente ubicación, la atención del personal fue excelente, la comida deliciosa con un toque chic Gourmet delicioso, buscaremos otros restaurantes del Chef George que seguro será una experiencia inolvidable como Oh lala
One of the best places to eat in Playa
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!
We sat outside and everything was delicious and service was efficient and unobtrusive.
The food, service and ambiance were amazing. My mom & I went there to celebrate her birthday. We enjoyed every bite of the food...it really was some of the best food I’ve ever eaten. This is a true gem!!!
The food is amazing and service was outstanding although prices are not reasonable for Mexico mostly perhaps its located in a tourist city but would definitely recommend this place to others
Always a favorite while visiting playa del Carmen...fresh delicious food and top notch service.
Super friendly staff and excellent food
