Beautiful venue. Managers and staff were very knowledgeable and made us feel at home. Considering how busy they were the food arrived in a reasonable time. The food was superb and the managers assistance in choosing our mains paid off. Well done

General cafe type food is excellent. They are however clueless when it comes to cooking a steak. I ordered Medium rare, and got Medium to well done. Sent it back and a replacement arrived, ice cold inside, lightly seared outside.

This ever-popular mainly breakfast-orientated eatery has much to commend it, but we were disappointed on our recent visit. Comparatively, it isn’t cheap, so one expects everything to be just right. My flat white was, well, flat. That could just be a personal preference. But it...More

Oscars has long been a great place for a good, reasonably priced meal and excellent service. The restaurant is more often full and especially Friday nights, you would need to book or you will not get a table. I recommend Oscars.
