This is an amazing restaurant. The atmosphere is welcoming and relaxing and includes some alfresco dining. The service is friendly and efficient. The food is outstanding (with many vegetarian choices) and at very reasonable prices. I love their trio of dips and Thai pizza. Always return regularly and looking forward to sampling more items on their fantastic well-priced menu. Though... More

We hadn't been to Oscar's for years after some disappointments but decided to give them a try. The entree flatbread was great, salad was good but pizza was a disappointment. The special prawn pizza was soggy and undercooked. The prawns were small imported and tasteless. Other pizzas may have been better but I won't be going back for another few... More

We were warmly greeted and sat at a comfortable table on the balcony. The pizzas were pleasant and the local wine was excellent. It was a good way to spend a Sunday night

Second visit to Oscars. Great food and very friendly service. Plenty of choice on the menu. My wife and myself had a pasta dish. The steak looked like a very popular choise. Good wine list.

We had breakfast there. We wanted a full English breakfast - eggs, bacon etc but nothing like this was on the menu. We settled for Berry waffles. They were ok but the waffles were over toasted and too hard. Service was slow and we left feeling quite disappointed with the experience.

I was lucky enough to have celebrated my birthday at Oscars last weekend ! There were 16 of us altogether and everyone of us loved our food , the service was awesome even though the staff were clearly under the pump as the restaurant was so busy, Steve was the person who looked after us most of the night and...

We have tried most of the fine dining restaurants in McLaren Vale which are open for dinner and the selection if thin at best so this time we decided to take some local's advice and simply hit Oscar's. We were not expecting much and we went casual. We were actually surprised. My Husband had a pizza which he would rate... More

Went out Saturday night for a meal with my wife. Was very disappointed at the end of the night. We decided to try some different meals. We had the Grilled Scallops, which while the scallops were cooked perfectly, they just were extremely busy. A combination of unusual and strange textures with the mix of roasted pepitas and squid ink sauce... More
