We had a very enjoyable lunch. The staff were very accommodating and were child friendly. They offer a 3 course set menu or the usual menu, offering a nice range of choices on each. The wine list had some very good options. The seafood options that most of our table were full of flavour but not at... read more

First impressions at night are very favourable. Lighting is invitingly ambient & the staff speak in hushed tones. A window table wasn't available (though we hadn't asked for one) so we were invited to have a drink at the bar. What a well appointed cocktail bar. The cocktail list offered a number of yummy concoctions. The Chilli Choc was a... More

Thank you so much for taking the time tell us how much you enjoy the cocktails and the ambience of the restaurant. We pride ourselves on offering friendly service with well informed staff. I am sorry that although the Duck and Lamb were tender and cooked perfectly that they were not to your personal taste and apologise that the music... More

I hadn't been out to dinner for a long time and after visiting my brother in Robina palliative care my daughter and I thought we would go somewhere nice. The view was spectacular, but the waiters were "stiff"...not unfriendly, but not friendly. We had the $39 special and my daughter commented that it was pub food with a great view.... More

I think we must have broken some restaurant rules - arrived late afternoon, too soon for dinner, too late for lunch. My elderly Mother and I celebrating a special family anniversary (my Fathers passing). Had to ask for drinks, was only offered cheese plate. Later when I requested oysters they were watery and very average ( possibly defrosted). A lovely... More

Hi Jenny Thank you for thinking of Oskars as a place to bring your mother on such an occasion. Our main kitchen does take last orders around 2.30pm and we can however provide snacks or tapas style food until service commences again at 6.00pm. I can 100% confirm to you that Oskar's never serves frozen oysters "not now not ever"... More

I had the $39 two course meal witha glass of wine. The meal was fairly basic and not value for the price even though it was $39. The service was so rushed - as soon as you finished your plate was taken. The waiting staff hovered the whole time and it felt uncomfortable.

Thankyou for choosing Oskars on Burleigh as your dinning choice, I am sorry you feel that the special was not what you expected for $39, (entree and main with a glass of wine) It is however difficult to comment as you did not actually say what you had?? You may have felt the service was rushed as we do have... More

We have been to Oscars many times for dinner and were always impressed with the meals however this time we decided to go for Sunday breakfast. It was fantastic. The view at night time is great but during the day I think it's even better. It really makes you appreciate where you live thats for sure. The breakfast menu has... More

Our experience began where we were greeted by(Dale?, Dave?) a kind waiter who seated us across the beautiful Pacific Ocean that Oskars has no direct competition towards, after admiring the view we were served our meal, specifically the prawns where the best we have ever had, but all of the food was top class, Oskars is a restaurant that has...

We were invited to lunch with the family, heard about Oskars. Here are a few of my tips : When going out around that area on a weekend be sure to leave early as parking can be hit and miss. Visit the kitchen area veiw opposite the cocktail bar as this will give you an idea of serving portions. Take... More

We've just had another fantastic meal at Oskars. We come every year when we are on holidays and they never fail to please. This year was no exception. The service was amazing, attentive and personalised. The food was fabulous. Already looking forward to the next visit.

Friendly service, seems to be recently renovated, lovely position right on the beach. The food was quite nice but overpriced and serving sizes are small. $9.50 for a side serve of greens that consisted of a handful of limp veggies?
