I adore Oscars!! I pretty much plan my trips to Galway around heading to this fab place for seafood & amazing fish dishes. The special fish dishes are always thought through well, and you can tell the chefs have a great knowledge of flavours and Irish ingredients. Staff are always great with recommendations and suggestions as well as drink pairings,... More

A group of six of us (3 couples) went to Oscars for dinner and for us all it was our first time there since it became a seafood bistro. The atmosphere in the restaurant was great with a real buzz throughout our time there. Our universal view was that the food was great from starters through main course and dessert.... More

We've eaten here many times with family or a romantic dinner for two and never had a bad dinning experience. If you love seafood here is a must. Nice staff that know their stuff, tasty food and great selection of wine and beer. You won't be disappointed!

Special treat for my 60th 🎉. I loved the restaurant, staff and the fish was excellent. I visited here with my 5 sisters. We all had different dishes and each one was excellent.

It has a nice atmosphere. We were made feel welcome. The food is great and good value. It is not pretentious. They don't tell you where every ingredient comes from, like some places. Three had fish dishes and one steak. All were perfect and the servings were judged to perfection in that you had enough to satisfy you and you... More

Cosy little bistro with good service and excellent fish menu and specials board. The seafood chowder and Connemara crab starter were delicious as were all of our main meals. We did not have room for dessert. A very enjoyable meal.

Thank Lynne G
