    Come here for a relaxed-chic gourmet experience. IMO, best restaurant in PDC. Excellent cocktails (Dry Gin Martini, One night in Paris), outstanding food (scallops (appetizer), octopus, panang curry, and the star of the meal the fillet mignon with foie gras). Professional, yet warm service. Don’t skip dessert (chocolate soufflé with vanilla ice cream, and lemon cream with passion fruit sorbet). This is our 2nd time in PDC and 3rd time @Oh lala.

    Always one of our favorite restaurants in Playa. We went there twice this week because the food and service were amazing. First time we had duck tacos. They were so amazing that we decided we'd have them again on our second visit. They were out (boo) but we had the scallop and mushrooms instead. Wow! Glad we tried something different. The sauce made you want to lick the plate (or dab it up with the bread). First night we had the butter tuna is always a must have for us. It was great as always. We also had some of the largest and tastiest prawns I've ever had. I took pictures of them beside my husband's hand for comparison. This was a special so not available all the time. The second time dinning there we wanted something different for our entrees. We decided to try a shrimp curry dish and spurge on the lobster tails. Once again, another outstanding dinner! Lobsters were cooked perfectly and the curry was amazing! We had an apple tart the first meal but they were out the second time. We settled for a nice port wine to finish the meal. Overall, we really like dinning here. One of our must eat at places when in Playa!

    We arrived at this quaint little cafe for dinner. it was a very pleasant surprise. The food was plentiful and very artfully delivered. The seared scallops were outstanding and the prawns for the main course were grilled to perfection. It was a fantastic evening and meal.

    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.

    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.
