This restaurant is very nice, both the indoor dining as well as the gardens dining. The food could have been nice too if it was not served very cold. We had to wait a long time and when we asked what happened to our food it suddently and quickly came from the kitchen cold. It looked like it was ready... More

Easy to access from 307, and the food and drinks are delicious. The ambience and decor is absolutely lovely, and the hammocks and play area for the kids make for a relaxing afternoon. Definitely a place to return to many times over.

I've driven by Oscar & Lalo's for a number of years and yet have never chosen to dine there. I've been missing out! This restaurant is beautiful, both the indoor dining as well as the gardens dining. Staff are very attentive. The food... amazing! Some of the best guacamole and chips in Mexico! The three of us enjoyed the octopus... More

We went with our 2 year old and 4 year old. The kids loved the play ground and brave Iguanas that let us check them out while we waited for our food. The place is beautiful with a bridge over a koi pond. Stone walls and floors inside and sandy floors and huts over the tables outside. There is also... More

My wife and i went for a nice dinner. We sat outside under a roof as it was raining, it should have been a perfect evening. Our waiter first brought our drinks then our appetizer, which he set off to the side on a serving tray near the rain. He walked away and after almost 10 minutes returned, and then... More

This lovely restaurant is 10 minutes south of the Bahia Principe resort. You walk in off the highway to a cool jungle oasis with streams and koi fish. We shared all the dishes so the three of us could try every flavor. Mixed ceviche was very good. Chilli relleno had a very mild tomato sauce with loads of cheese. My... More

We where recommended that we go to Oscar and Lalos from a friend in New York city, she said it was a fantactic place to eat and that we had to try the Seafood Platter. Oscar and Lalo was also highly recommended by the Villa owner we rented from, when we asked her what her favorite dining spot was. A... More

We waited a lot of time before having our food on the table and it also arrived cold. The prices are too high, considering the three shrimps and two octopus pieces I had on my dish. Everything else was filled with carrots, mushrooms and onions (asked for the seafood with guajillo dish). No good flavor at all.

Description
Wonderful Palapa Restaurant since 1982 with a pebble floor, mayan sculptures, waterfalls, hammocks, exotic birds, a peaceful garden with a fantastic jungle setting. Excellent Seafood, Authentic Mexican and Yucatecan Cuisine. World Famous "Lalo's Special", a dish made with fresh shrimp, lobster, calmer, fish and chicken fajitas is Superb. The ceviche made of fresh fish, shrimp, lobster, octopuss and lemon is also exceptional. The most relaxing place to laze in a hammock after a delicious feast.
