Very good food, although a little pricey.

The building is currently being renovated, which detracts a little from the exceptional views and atmosphere. The quality of the food is first class, although a little pricey, especially considering the opposition from other restaurants on the coast.

The torn carpet reflected the abysmal food served in this former fine dine restaurant. The ricotta in the zucchini flowers tasted off, and I was shocked that a restaurant could serve cold polenta gnocchi with boiled peas. Please don't go here - the glamour days of this restaurant are over.

As a local I had previously visited this establishment some 3 years ago. Firstly without doubt the location is first class although for dinner a lot of the views are 'lost in the dark'. However, unfortunately the location does not guarantee the quality of food and ambience. I am therefore mystified why this restaurant has a rating of a "1... More

Even though I'm a local and can walk to Oskars. It's been a while since indulging at the beautifully located Oskars. I recently had the opportunity to catch up with a long time girlfriend at Oscars on the beach at Burleigh Heads for a leisurely lunch on a week day. We had the pick of tables all with a fabulous...
