You are most certainly going to want a hot and hearty meal after all that exploring and swimming, so we highly suggest you stop at Oscar & Lalo, a restaurant, bar, and grill that always draws in the crowds. This delicious eatery is located on Carretera Federal 307, in between Playa Del Carmen and Tulum. This spot has been serving up fantastic seafood, excellent Mexican, delicious handmade desserts, and fresh and unique cocktails with great hospitality since 1982’. The food is fresh and supported by local farmers, ranchers, and fishermen, making this an especially fresh and authentic eatery to visit. You will enjoy the pebble floors, Mayan sculptures, and various waterfalls throughout the cozy spot, an outdoor garden seating section available for those who desire, complete with tons of exotic and native birds.
Some of the best things here are the simplest, such as the Mexican Salsa, made 4 times daily here to ensure freshness. The food, in general, is ‘incredibly versatile cuisine’, serving things such as ceviches, soup and salads, seafood, house specials, grill specials, and regional dishes. It is all beautiful and exotic, just like the decor. You’ll have to try the ‘Lalo’s Special’ while here, a plate topped with lobster, shrimp, fillet of calamar, fish fillet, who fish, and chicken fajitas, service with rice, beans, fried bananas, and french fries! Go ahead, take a picture, it’s going to blow your mind. Speaking of blowing your mind, if the extremely hospitable staff doesn’t do it for you (guests oftentimes talk about how the owner's daughter, Virginia, was a delight during service), the ceviche will! Be sure to try it before you go, the fresh fish, lobster, octopus, and lemon said to be completely out of this world!
