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

As we were diving with Thresher Shark Divers, & Oscars in conveniently located in the same premises, we were pleased to find that their menu was just right for lunch, with a variety of western dishes & Philippine specialities - in fact we ended up eating here 6 times for lunch.....definitely for us a lunch place, didn't really appeal for...

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

I have been to Malapascua several times over many years as it is close by and great diving. the last 3 trips I would estimate that we would eat 60-70% of all our lunch and dinners there. They have a good selection on their menu and their daily specials never disappoint. Staff a great (as most are almost everywhere on... 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

Oscar's was such a wonderful surprise. Don't let it's laidback, unassuming amniance fool you. This place has some of the best tasting dishes in the island. It has a diverse menu, from British, to Indian, Indonesian, Filipino fare, and more. The nasi goreng was fabulous! The pratha was divine! And the fish and chips, just wow! Hands down, the best...

Both the Indian paratha roll and fish and chips were excellent. Can get smaller serves called "light bites" or larger serve of 3 pieces of fish with chips. Indian roll came with rice and sauce so it was an adequate main meal. Would have eaten there more often if we had not decided to try other restaurants on the island.... More

I spent a couple of days having lunch and dinner here (it's at the same location as my dive center). The menu is great, both tasty Philippine dishes and nice western ones too (loved the spaghetti and meat balls!).

We ate here as we were diving at Thresher Shark Divers and we didn't have very high expectations based on previous dive shop restaurant experiences. However, we were pleasantly surprised as there was excellent, fast service and delicious, home-made food in a lovely beach side atmosphere. Great soup, fish and dessert too!
