“Disappointing rubbish”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

Food was carelessly presented, my jacket baked potato was almost totally black, which put me off anything else served up. Lost my appetite so cannot comment further.....

“disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

The buffet is very poor, you would do better having a buffet in Macdonalds (if they had one!) The service is good but overall it is over rated and over priced. Not worth the effort to get there!

“Something different”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

Just outside Manilva, the Roman Oasis is a special place.
Described by some as a glorified barbecue, and it is, but is also so much more. Paul, the owner, receives you at the gate like one of the family, and the rest of his excellent staff treat you likewise.
The food is simple, but good and plentiful, and reasonably priced.
The general atmosphere is great, with more fairy lights than Blackpool Illuminations !.
Is only open though from June through September.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

OK - firstly the kids loved this place. Great play area and at night scary (but wont tell you why). They found it fun with the wheel of fortune at the end of the night. The owner is a very interesting character with endless tales/stories. The restaurant offers a BBQ for a set menu of Euro 25 (I think) and children are half price. For this you receive a cold buffet for starter then obviously a cooked BBQ of various meats. If honest, its not the best food in the world but has a great atmosphere. The staff are extremely friendly and all are multi lingual! It's fun, bizarre but please dont expect the greatest cuisine. I forgot to mention the parrot!!
