“very nice atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2014

This is a beach restaurant with a nice sea view. The food is OK, above average but not sensational. It's the friendly personnel that makes the difference. People made jokes and laughed most of the time that I have been there, so I had quit a good time. If you like the spicy food, try the local Sisig. It is perfect with a San Miguel beer next to it... Cocktails at the bar are also good.

“Great place for lunch between dives......”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2014

As we were diving with Thresher Shark Divers, & Oscars in conveniently located in the same premises, we were pleased to find that their menu was just right for lunch, with a variety of western dishes & Philippine specialities - in fact we ended up eating here 6 times for lunch.....definitely for us a lunch place, didn't really appeal for evening meals

“Inconsiderate Manager”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2014

Took crew out for dinner, food and ambience was good. When it came time for the check we were served one of our courses in a take out bag with an apology that they forgot to serve but we were to still be charged. I asked to see the manager and he was very unprofessional and asked us if "we" had reminded the server who had forgotten? It was uncomfortable situation for every everyone and ruined the night.

“Constantly Satisfying”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2014

I have been to Malapascua several times over many years as it is close by and great diving. the last 3 trips I would estimate that we would eat 60-70% of all our lunch and dinners there.

They have a good selection on their menu and their daily specials never disappoint.

Staff a great (as most are almost everywhere on the island) and always making sure your happy.

Can't recommend Oscars enough. They will not disappoint and definitely my favourite on the Island.

“Not just for divers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014

After a long stay diving on Malapascua I managed to try pretty much all of the restaurants. And out of my top ten meals, nine would be from the ‘specials’ menu at Oscars. As well as the standard quite excellent menu of breakfasts, light bites, huge pancakes, sandwiches, Filipino and English staples (this is a British dive resort, after all), there’s also a daily ‘Specials’ menu. Just four main items, and it changes every day, depending on what’s fresh. There’s frequently a classic British dish like Bangers and Mash (real potato and proper sausages), Steak and Ale Pie with real gravy, and on Sunday, a full English Roast Dinner. But there are also Filipino dishes, some superb pastas (the Pasta Amatriciana was the best meal I ate during my whole stay) and some imaginative fish dishes. Just be aware that the servings are very generous. Then, if you still have room, there are the desserts – the Dark Chocolate Mousse is, in my opinion, the best thing on the whole island, but their White Chocolate Mousse, Banoffee Pie and Mango Float are very close behind. It doesn’t hurt that they serve the best coffee on Malapascua as well…

The restaurant upstairs is currently being rebuilt – they have candlelit tables on the beach in the evening, and a big shaded area in front of the bar where you can sit and chat with the very friendly instructors, interns and divers.

Unreservedly recommended.
