This is a place to take the kids and fill up. Not a great place for romance and they tend to rush things.

Noisy and hectic inside, fairly nice outside. Lots of kids.

We both had pasta and salad. Both were average, nothing great to say. We did leave satisfied but would not return.

Looked like a nice place, lots of diners, staff friendly. Unfortunately ordered the pasta and it was tasteless. Ordered and entree serve and it was served in a cereal bowl. Wouldn't recommend

We haven't been to Oscars for a couple of years. It used to be one of our favourites, but then other places beckoned and we we haven't been back. We remedied this today ( in the middle of the wonderful Ride for Amy) and are pleased to return. The pate is so tasty and the menu is large enough to please everybody. The pizzas are may and varied and well worth returning for. The three for service reflects my experience today - The service was rushed, but they were turning over tables to accommodate the huge influx of people (our main courses were served, but the plates from our entree were left on the table). I won't hold that against them and look forward to my next serve of the best pate I have ever eaten.

Lovely atmosphere and staff. Great for winter dining inside next to the open fire or summer alfresco dining with great shaded areas. The food is always good and there is great choice of local wines. Child friendly with a toy box to keep them entertained. Fab for a quiet lunch or a celebration. We have visited regularly over the last 6 years!

Great night out with our friends. The meal and the service were all good. Will return and have another meal when next on tour
