It was brand new opened and finding its feet but I appreciated the UK style sausage sandwich and other breakfast items. A nice break from eggs and rice. :) The Thresher Divers crew downstairs are a nice bunch and tend to bring the energy. Great upstairs views of the bay.

I was diving at TSD and was invited to the Christmas Day meal at Oscars. The menu was fixed and they served a five course meal. It was very delious and perhaps the best meal we had on the island all week. Based on an English theme the meal was very plentiful and complex with great flavors. Keep in mind... More

we were diving with thresher shark divers so this was super convenient for us for pre/post dive drinks and snacks. nothing particularly fancy on the menu but good food (they even made me bacon sarnies in the morning cos I didn't want a full English) - extensive drinks list too (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic). they're not operating at full whack...

Hits and missed. Filipino dishes and sandwiches are not bad, but you can find similar food for less elsewhere.

This is a beach restaurant with a nice sea view. The food is OK, above average but not sensational. It's the friendly personnel that makes the difference. People made jokes and laughed most of the time that I have been there, so I had quit a good time. If you like the spicy food, try the local Sisig. It is... More

Took crew out for dinner, food and ambience was good. When it came time for the check we were served one of our courses in a take out bag with an apology that they forgot to serve but we were to still be charged. I asked to see the manager and he was very unprofessional and asked us if "we"... More

After a long stay diving on Malapascua I managed to try pretty much all of the restaurants. And out of my top ten meals, nine would be from the ‘specials’ menu at Oscars. As well as the standard quite excellent menu of breakfasts, light bites, huge pancakes, sandwiches, Filipino and English staples (this is a British dive resort, after all),... More
