We hadn't been to Oskar's for a couple of years so decided to treat ourselves again. We turned up for dinner and had to wait at the entrance for ages until someone decided to attend to us (it wasn't busy). We were asked if we still wanted an outside table, which was odd because I hadn't requested one when we... More

One word, terrible. This place is so hit and miss that we've decided, never again. The food was ordinary but what was worse was the service. The waitress told us as we sat down that the restaurant was "fully booked" because we asked to be moved to a nicer table overlooking the water. We were at the restaurant for 2... More

There is no nicer way to spend a Sunday afternoon! The views over the ocean, the food, the drink, the service - Just Perfect!

Having just had an o/s trip for some weeks and enjoying some fabulous food in France we really missed Oskars ON the Beach. Had a wonderful lunch there yesterday. It was so nice to be back. Greeted like a long lost relative by the lovely Bianca. The place was buzzing and a new addition the lounge/bar area for drinks was... More

We had booked the restaurant from Melbourne with none of our party even having been there before and most of us travelling from Melbourne for a special birthday. The restaurant manager was fantastic to deal with, nothing was too much trouble (even when she realised I had booked for lunch instead of dinner). The food was beautiful, our waiter was... More

The food I had here was just ultimate and specially am an vegetarian so they made something which was not in menu. The food was just mouth watering. I never gave a review on tripadvisor. But this food made me give a review

To put in context, the view of the ocean, beach and Surfers Paradise in the back ground in Burleigh Heads is amazing especially when you have clear blue sunny skies, whether you are on the beach, sitting on the park benches or just strolling. We decided to give Oskars a try because of it's prime restaurant location situated in a... More

It is a truism unfortunately too frequently true that restaurants with a great situation are charging for the view and correspondingly think they can get away with lesser quality food. This is the case for Oskar's. On the day we went, there were also unforgivable lapses of service. We were a group of 9, attending following the Gold Coast Marathon.... More

As a first time diner at Oskars at Burleigh we were extremely impressed with everything. We realised that to totally appreciate the restaurant lunch would be better as at night you can't really see the ocean view however it was still a great restaurant. Once again with an expensive restaurant the bar is always lifted with your expectations and Oskars... More
