“Only option”
Reviewed January 18, 2012

First of all, we chose this place because nothing else except McDonalds or KFC was open, at 6:20 in the evening; so these guys have the market cornered in that aspect.
The food was quite good, except for the caesar salad which just had 4 big anchovie fillets slapped on the top, rather than blended into the dressing. The beer tasted like it was quite old, and was fairly flavourless.
Apart from that, the service was excellent, and the staff were really friendly and helpful, even though it was our waiter's first day.

“Going downhill”
Reviewed January 17, 2012

Oscars used to be one of our favourite places to go for lunch or dinner - the food and service was the best in town. Now it feels lacking in atmosphere and whilst the staff try their best, it just feels a bit flat. The food isn't quite as good either so you don't feel like it's worth the price. Such as shame, hopefully it picks up soon.

“Very nice food”
Reviewed November 12, 2011

The food is graet, albeit a bit on the pricy side. Service is great, and a good central location.

“Lovely lunch, good wine and coffee”
Reviewed November 7, 2011

We had Melbourne Cup lunch at Oscars with work colleagues, the meal was really lovely, great vegetarian entree and main, plus the non vegetarian food looked great, the seafood was very impressive by the comments of the other diners with me.

“Excellent food, first class service and friendly atmosphere.”
Reviewed October 24, 2011

I visited Oscars with friends and found it by far the best food and most enjoyable evening during my visit to Alice Springs. I ordered the crab and prawn risotto followed by a chocolate pot and it was superb.If you visit Alice give yourself a treat and have a meal in Oscars, it's not to be missed!
