Location and Renovation = Great Experience

I love Oskars for it's unique beachfront location and I wanted to visit again after it's complete reno. I was surprised to find plastic chairs in such, an otherwise, classy restaurant, I must say. The ambiance is still sensational and everything is fresh, clean and new. The winter menu is... read more

The food was exceptional and although it is a little pricey, I would rather go out less so that I could enjoy Oskars more often! The waitstaff were second to none and worth tipping because we were so well looked after as a family, especially my 6 year old who was made to feel special rather than an inconvenience. Absolutely...

Without question, the location is stunning, and the interior of the restaurant is spacious, modern and inviting. The food itself was not brilliant for the prices they charge overall. One would expect good bread, oil, maybe an amuse bouche at these prices, but they actually charge $9.50 for bread as a side! Whilst the meat mains were well cooked, the... More

Visited Oskars for a lazy Sunday lunch today...what can I say; delicious food, relaxed friendly service and, oh that view!! It doesn't get any better than that. We had a table on the front balcony overlooking the ocean, just superb, basking in the sun and sipping Moet on Ice. For starter I had the Sashimi of Ocean Trout followed by... More

Sad to see this wonderful restaurant in it's amazing location slip to such low standards. Average and slow service, and a quite rude and indifferent maitre d', and luke warm food. I just don't want to go back.

Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that on this occasion we did not provide the usual standards of service and food that Oskars is renowned for. However, we are somewhat confused about the 4-5 month time disparity between your visit and your review. We look forward to welcoming you back to the restaurant to try our new menu. More

I had a wonderful meal and cocktail here. With a balcony virtually hanging over the ocean, the feeling of being on a ship is palpable. There is no other restaurant like this anywhere on the Gold Coast, and there'll never be another one. Bravo team and I look forward to seeing the new renovations.

We had a family Lunch at Oskars on Burleigh earlier in the month, our family has not stopped mentioning that day. From the fantastic attentive staff, that brilliant view, oh and the food! We did the whole three courses, plump cold Oysters, tasting plates, perfectly cooked wild Barramundi, and delicious scallops. My favourite, the Rhubarb & Apple Crumble....thank you Oskars,... More

Recommended by friends as a 'must' for a group and it delivered! Had been before but some time ago. We had a great night. We had a long dinner service as it was a family occasion.

Oskars is a lovely, elegant, dining experience. We had a family lunch here recently and were treated to a wonderful relaxed atmosphere, with a sensational elevated view of the ocean. This is the sort of place you can just sit and stare at the view for hours, with the food just the icing on the cake. I started with "Oskars"... More
