Awesome staff and surprisingly GREAT espresso

Food was average for breakfast. Not too bad if you choose well. You can also make special requests with the food (no MSG, etc). The staff were amazing at their job and were really friendly, probably well trained by the dive shop owners downstairs (Thresher Shark Divers). But the runaway winner is... read more

Food was average for breakfast. Not too bad if you choose well. You can also make special requests with the food (no MSG, etc). The staff were amazing at their job and were really friendly, probably well trained by the dive shop owners downstairs (Thresher Shark Divers). But the runaway winner is really their espresso. Splendid coffee.

Oscars is located above Thresher Shark Divers dive shop and it is an excellent place to eat. The staff is very friendly and helpful and you get your food in a timely manner. The food is very good and has a large variety of choices. For the prices you get a HUGE portion of food and you don't ever leave... More

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

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...
