El servicio es muy bueno, todos son muy amables y están atentos. La comida muy buena, los tacos de pato están deliciosos. Tal vez algunos precios si están un poco caros, sobre todo los vinos. Pero en general es un muy buen lugar, muy tranquilo y callado por lo q si buscas un lugar con mucho ambiente y ruido este no es el lugar.

Nous sommes de Montréal et fréquentons régulièrement de très bons restaurants et Ho La La se classerait dans les très bons restaurants de Montréal, c'est un WOW pour Playa del Carmen. Concernant le prix, nous avons pris deux entrées, deux plats principaux, une bouteille de vin, un dessert et deux cafés pour une facture de 220$ CD.

This restaurant has always been one of the best in Playa del Carmen for years. Our recent visit there verified that it still at the top. Staff is professional and delightful! Food is prepared with the freshest ingredients and presented beautifully. Make reservations well in advance because place is small and intimate and is always sold out.

Everything perfect from start to finish. Admittedly Oh La La is relatively expensive by Playa standards. The service, attention to detail, great food and ambiance are worth every pesos. We could not have been more please with the experience and will certainly return!

Well done Oh La La and the wonderful staff!

Thank you for a spectacular evening!

Our 3rd year coming back to Oh La La - and our 5th meal there - and each time is as magical as the first. Delicious and creative food, beautifully presented, warm and attentive service, and the lovely quiet setting all combine to make Oh La La our favorite restaurant in PDC. A special thanks this time to our server Emmanuel who was very charming!

This is one of my favorite restaurants. The service is so warm, caring and attentive, the food is delicious and the ambience feels like you are being hosted by a friend at her very nice house. I recommend this restaurant to everyone who is in the Riviera Maya/Playa Del Carmen area.

We have been eating at oh la la for a number of years. We spend February in Mexico and always make a reservation with George & Mikaela. The food is outstanding and the service has always been excellent.
Everyone makes you feel like a friend who has come back for a visit. On our visit Wednesday evening,
they had a large crowd at the big table in the back of the restaurant . These diners were extremely loud!
Making it hard for my husband and I to have a conversation. People who behave so crudely do not belong in a small place such as oh la la. I am not sure how an owners can fix this, however it makes everyone else who is dining, uncomfortable.

We arrived early and they let us sit inside and offered beverages while we waited for our reservation.
We had the special salads, scallops 2 ways, short ribs, and lamb, and a great bottle of wine. Don't make the mistake of skipping reservations-you don't want to be turned away and miss this gem. Desserts are delicious too. The staff is the best and the kitchen crew appreciates the love you share if you send them
a glass of your wine.
