Our new "go to" place.

My husband and I have wanted to try Oksar for a long time, and we finally made a reservation. We are so happy we tried it, and have decided it is our “go to” restaurant in Heidelberg. The food and the service were wonderful. They have a fish, pork, and spargel menu right now, as well as an... read more

This seems a relatively new place in Heidelberg. The evident ambition of the owners is to establish it as one of the top eating places in the city. The food is indeed excellent, high quality ingredients combined with outstanding preparation and presentation. The wine list is short, and the selections show knowledge and good taste. The ambience is special. The... More

Lovley meal. English menu and easy to choose - there's a asparagus menu/ fish menu/ pork menu or you can choose a la carte. I had the fish menu and thoroughly enjoyed every course. Each plate of food was pretty and very tasty. The German equivalent of Proseeco was very good too. No de caff coffee but not unusual in... More

We were unable to get into Simplicissimus because they were booked. So we took their suggestion to try this restaurant, and happy we did. We were a business party of 5. Very well prepared German food, but not heavy German. Service was good. Only negatives were having to walk through bar area that smelled of cigarette smoke in order to... More

While the food and wine was good, what made this for me was the very friendly, smiling and attentive service despite the restaurant being very busy. Recommended.

We normally don’t write any reviews but in this case I thought it’s worth it. My husband and I dined at Oscar’s last Saturday and it was the best meal we’ve had in Germany so far, if not on our entire trip. The food was exceptionally delicious and the waitress was very attentive and helpful. Great wine list with superb... More

I had dinner more than 10x here and was never disappointed. Surprising flavors and overall excellent experience. Service has always been outstanding and a good selection of wines including local vines from the area. Absolutely recommended!!!

We come here every time we are in town. They have locally sourced food in all of their dishes and everything tastes fantastic. They typically offer multi-course menus (one with meat, one with fish) as well as a la carte including vegetarian options. The staff is really great and helpful with special dietary needs and wine pairing recommendations. Overall, as... More

Very impressed when the starter arrived, good, fresh flavours...however, the main course was average and the desert poor...a shame because the food here has the potential to be very good. Service was good though.

You sure have to try the wine here! They have a large selection and will recommend you German wines too - they're from the region and delicious. The food is nice as well, and you can get a three or four course menu for around 35€.
