Great food and service. Recommend making reservations but luckily even without those they were able to seat us in about 15 minutes. Menu is ever changing based on the catch of the day.

Oscar's seafood is great! I had monk fish and it was terrific. The service was good and efficient. The chocolate torte dessert was the perfect ending to a great meal. One of the best we had in Ireland.

No dress code. It gets pretty busy but we showed up without a reservation and had an hour wait. It was worth it.
