This wonderful palapa restaurant with a pebble floor and peaceful garden is actually a couple of miles outside Tankah on Carretera 307. The seafood is excellent, although a bit pricey. Lalo's Special (a dish made with local lobster, shrimp, conch, and fish) and the chicken fajitas are standouts. The ceviche made of fresh fish and lobster, and the caracoles (snails) with citrus juice are also exceptional. Many come just for the grilled octopus seasoned with paprika. You're likely to either have this place all to yourself or be lost in a crowd of travelers arriving by tour bus.

Oscar & Lalos has been taken over by the daughter of Lalo and she has redid the menu. cost of plates and drinks are way less than restaurants on Tulum Beach and Playa del Carmen. Oscar & Lalos is the best place we dined at while in the Riviera Maya. We had very fresh & excellent food. The serve Traditional Mexican and Fresh Seafood. Margaritas are made with freshly squeezed juice and only about 80 pesos (5 or 6 USD) a drink . My favorite
is the Lalo Special filled with fresh grilled seafood. Homemade Flan to die for ;-). Air conditioned Bar, indoor and outdoor garden seating, Beautiful and Peaceful place.
