The staff will remember your name after your first day there and run a tab for you. They're helpful and friendly. The food is good and so are the prices. Great place to chill out in between dives.

I normally prefer to eat local while on holiday, but we were diving with the dive centre down stairs, and so found ourselves up in the bar/restaurant a few times. The food is great and there are some real home comforts, and new specials on the menu everyday.

Ok diving with Thresher Shark divers it was my deco stop... But Oscar is more than a bar restaurant. It's really a great place with very kind, helpfull staff. Food is great, and drink the list is long enough for a very very long holiday to test :-) Nice lounge terrass, covered area and bar. Very good music, great place... More

I dived with TSD and spent a lot of time at Oscar's as well. Fabulous view, good food and the best happy hour on the island! The owner is a wonderful publican! Trevor tells a great story, and the music is wonderfully eclectic.
