Family of five went to oysters for sunday dinner. The presentation of the food served was excellent. The staff were very helpful and very plesant. The owner took the time to talk to us on a few occasions which was very nice of him. Dinner was beautiful. Dessert was perfect. Just one slight problem. An overdose of salt in the... More

Dear Reviewer, Your very generous review is greatly appreciated. Thank you. Regarding our potatoes, we actually do season them but perhaps we need to review the salt content in light of your review. It may simply have been a one-off occasion when there was a little more salt deployed than usual. It is the first time we have had feed... More

Wow - stop reading reviews this place is quality fine dining The staff are brilliant at creating the feel that all is a bit different here. It's not just sit order and eat, it's appreciation of the atmosphere and the time to create something better than normal. If I am honest it is not the most perfect of meals, however... More

Ive been to Oysters restaurant Strabane, on numerous occasions in the past. My experience has always been great if not overwhelmingly positive. Having agreet to have the lunch menu with some friends, we expected their usual excellent hospitality and mouth-watering food. Most of my guests enjoyed their meal, but one guest was horrified when their chicken in the Greek Yogurt... More

Oysters has become the regular location for celebrating special occasions (birthdays, anniversaries or maybe even just that wee treat) for my family and I and it has always been excellent. Last night was no different. It was faultless throughout. Every bite was to be savoured. Everyone at the table tried a different dish but all feedback was the same, delicious!... More

Definitely not disappointed. Starters and mains were top class food. We were both a little underwhelmed with the desserts. I had the duck to start which was delicious but not a working mans portion by any means followed by the surf and turf which I had asked to be closer to rare than medium. It was however well done but... More
