Finally a vegetarian menu

If you're looking for delicious and vegetarian (not to mention a great happy hour) look no further! The food was very reasonably priced and very tasty, especially after a day of diving! The service was a little slow but always came with a smile and happy hour always ends late! On a side note I... read more

Located above the Thresher Shark Divers shop Oscars is the perfect location for a few cocktails or a couple of beers after a days diving. With a happy hour that starts around 4 pm and lasts most of the evening and two for one cocktails served with a smile this is a great place to chill and relax. After the... More

Good food but just lacked a little atmosphere. Would go back again as it may have just been a quiet night.

Portions are so large I really think you can get three meals out of one entree! Food is good and they have daily menu changes which is really nice. Because I am diving with Thresher Shark Divers I end up eating two meals a day here. You really can't go wrong! The staff is very friendly and the food is... More

This restaurant is located on top of TSD so after diving it is a great hang out to enjoy a beer or dinner with your fellow divers. In between dives there is well working wifi to use while you eat lunch before your afternoon dive. The staff is really friendly and kind. I was called by my first name by... More

Food here is good quality and they have real sausages. Service is hit and miss but think we got them on an off day. Good if you want english food but there are better options around if you don't.

We ate here regularly whilst diving with Thresher Shark Divers (downstairs) and thoroughly enjoyed the balcony dining area and ambience! The breakfast servings were huge and the food was delicious, but the dinner menu seemed a bit overpriced compared with other dining options on the island. I really recommend the fish and chips, and the breakfasts. Also, they have a... More

Oscar's should open early daily preferably before 5am to provide quick breakfast for the Monad thresher shark divers! Also, suggest they play Filipino music, as well as various other foreign stuff.

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.
