    The restaurant is a little hard to spot on 14bis. It is a very quiet oasis not far from the sonic mayhem on Ave 5. The service by our Argentinian and Mexican staff was first rate - attentive, friendly, helpful, and not intrusive. We started with excellent cocktails, followed by duck confit tacos to share. There was an asian or Indian influence, some 5 spice perhaps, with a chutney. We both had tuna steaks done two different ways. The fish was cooked perfectly and accompanied by excellent buttery mashed potatoes in one case, by grilled vegetables in the other. Both dishes were excellent. Desserts were equally outstanding. Even the espresso coffee was perfect. But this is not the place for a dedicated vegetarian . the menu is mostly red meat.

    First time at Oh Lala, a wonderful intimate dinner. I was seated so I could watch the chef and he is an artist supported by a skilled staff. Buttered Tuna was superb, my husband had the red curry and loved every bite! Thanks to Clara and all the staff for a great evening in paradise.

A wonderful celebration with friends that made it all the more special by the attentive (but not overbearing) service and the incredible food. Highly recommend the Mushroom appetizer and the Tuna in butter!

    Fantastic food and service. Really friendly and genuinely caring staff who advised on the the menu. All the food was superbly cooked (scallops, lobster, Fillet mignon and tuna steak) and they gave us complimentary dessert as it was a special birthday. Fresh seafood (lobster etc) depends on market price that day so isn’t stated on the menu. Wine was the most we have paid in Mexico whilst noting this is a tourist resort. Would return and recommend for a special occasion.

    I typically have low expectations for fine dining establishments in Mexico having been to Cabo (10+ times) and now the Maya Riviera. This place stands far and above the other places we have eaten. Artistically presented, delicious food. Perhaps a bit heavy on meat oriented options if that is a concern for you. If and when we come back to Playa, this will be the first place we book!

    We have been here several of times over the years but it just keeps getting better! The food is spectacular and the best we have found. The service is impeccable! We dined here twice this week. The second night Julia noticed they were out of our favorite wine before we ever arrived. She went out of her way to obtain a bottle elsewhere to be sure it would be available if we wanted it again. That is extraordinary! The chefs Are incredible and the staff is simply the best. Can’t wait to go back again. (Written by someone who travels nationally and internationally on a regular basis. I’m exposed to phenomenal food and great service frequently)

    We celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary here. We walked out thinking it was the best decision! Service was impeccable - friendly, poised, and just the right amount of attention. Little things like orienting the bottle to the center after refilling your glass exemplifies their attention to detail. The staff have a good sense of humor and are unpretentious. Now onto the food: Duck confit tacos - elegant, creative and finely shredded duck, served with mango chutney. Garlic and scallop skewers - delicately seasoned yet powerful flavours. Seared scallops with mushroom sauce - there were 2-3 different kinds of mushrooms in a rich cream sauce. Delicious! Surf and turf - medium rare filet mignon was tender and cooked well. Lobster came in a beautiful light sauce. The chef's finesse came through in the little things: the best mashed potato I've ever had. Buttery goodness. I requested bearnaise sauce on the side, it was absolutely delightful and remained smooth even 40 mins into the entree. Dessert - in my reservation, I had indicated special occasion. At the end of the meal, the staff came out with a cheesecake and candle to since Happy Birthday. It was neither of our birthdays, but rather our anniversary. When we mentioned it, we all had a good laugh together! The cheesecake was out of this world and their home made ice-cream was truly special. I'd go back to Oh La La just for their cheese cake. And this is coming from someone who does *not* like dessert. The glowing reviews this establishment continue to receive are completely deserved. We will be back next time!

    We visit Oh LaLa every year for my husband’s birthday. It’s his favorite in Playa del Carmen, and that’s saying a lot as there are many wonderful restaurants, and we have so many favorites. They are always finding new ways to make his birthday special, and this year was no exception. We are always appreciative of everything they do to make it a special occasion. As always I got the Soy Butter Tuna that is my favorite. My husband got the special, which include six GIANT prawns. He remarked that it was delicious as he slurped up the last of them. Always an excellent meal and always wonderful service.
