We ended up eating here a lot as it was right upstairs from Thresher Shark Divers and we got a meal plan to make it faster and easier. They did a great job with special orders and the food was excellent. The staff was always smiling and happy - they made the time we spent there even more fun. Oh... More

Sunshine wasn't good enough that afternoon so we didn't go for sunbathing. So on an island with a party of 5, what's better than enjoying some drinks in the afternoon before dinner? When to Oscar's as it seems like a decent place to us and located along the beach. Ordered a number of their signature cocktails and bear plus some... More

We went to this lovely restaurant twice during our stay in Malapascua and enjoyed both our breakfasts. The juices ate great as are their baguettes. Definitely worth a visit. The service was spot on to.

Good food. Lots of options for anytime of day. Can be pricey. Good place for beers after diving ofcourse and easy to spend money on the tab.

This place has some of the tastiest food on the island! Also the quantities are huge, so I found it extremely difficult to finish any one dish completely. The restaurant is located right above the Threshar Shark Diver on Bounty Beach and has beautiful views from the balcony. The staff and the owner/manager Chris is extremely friendly and there is...

Took full board at Oscar's during our 5D4N dive trip and over ate every meal. Finally invited our Dive master to join us for our dinner to help do justice to the large portions of food served.

I was GRANDPAcking in Malapascua for 11 nights and tried a few different restaurants and bars. I found the food at Oscar's a bit pricy for me, so only went there for Happy Hour cocktails. their Happy Hour ends at 7pm. So get there before 7 and order one of their 2-for-1 Happy cocktails. You can get something like a... More

We had a package that included breakfast at Oscars. The staff was always so happy and friendly, and food service was quick. Besides breakfast we often would have lunch or a drink as well because the dive Center was below and we could keep a tab going and pay for our food/drink at the end of our stay. The prices... More

Visited here on a recomendation from where we were staying...kind of wish we didn't bother. nice setting on the balcony. so we ordered food to be told all the dishes we wanted were not available...thats fine, but you should probably inform people when you give them the menu...not when they want to order, and one or two dishes i can...

Hi, Thank you for the review. As the owner, I was very concerned to read it. First let say that I am so sorry to hear about your experience. It is very unusual to hear something like this. Running out of dishes is one of my pet peeves and we try to avoid it when possible. In fact, one of... More
