Tucked away down a staircase and very small, but don't turn away! Walking in you feel like you are in someone's home dining room. We felt totally at home. First off, homemade salsa is super good and sweet tea is to die for! Husband & I ordered the cheese & onion enchiladas and son got the loaded nachos. OMG! Everything... More

I was in Eureka Springs on a very chilly fall day and was chatting with a shop owner when I asked for a restaurant recommendation. "Well, I woudn't recommend this place to just ANYONE," she said,"But you seem like you can appreciate it." And I did. Oasis is hidden on one of Eureka Springs' staircases between two streets, and it... More

My husband and I ate lunch here at the suggestion of one of the locals who has had a shop there for 15 years. It was packed! We barely made it in time for the last available seat. The salsa verde was pretty good and I don't like salsa verde. The food was homemade to order, which being as busy... More

We opened the door and it appeared we were in a closet. Got sat down, and promptly had to leave again to visit the ATM, as only cash and checks are accepted. Waited a long time for service, waited a long time for food, and never did get refills on drinks or chips. In the server's defense however, she was... More

Was one of those follow your nose moments when a friend and I found this place halfway down the stairs. The restaurant is small and was crowded but we were seated right away. Had chips and salsa to start - be aware these aren't free but definitely worth paying for - and then the lunch specials. I had pork mole... More

Had the Migas frittata. Wow! I can't come up with enough superlatives to describe the food and atmosphere. This place is one of a kind. Really enjoyed getting to know the staff, we had a blast. Food was fresh, tasty and cooked to perfection. Don't miss the bathroom, it's a local tourist attraction, just off the banquet room.

Standing on the street debating if we should try the place...and the owner came out and stated that this is an old restaurant in Eureka Springs and she does no advertising because word of mouth is enough. Ventured in and not a huge place but mid afternoon had a table right away. The barbacoa (sp??) special was outstanding... her salsa... More
