Last year we had this great seafood spaghetti, spaghetti just perfect,great flavours and a touch of lemon, nicely spiced. This year we ordered the same, tasted average, no flavours hardly spiced, spaghetti slightly over cooked, maybe a bad day? Different people in the kitchen?

Every dish that we had tasted wonderful and was beautifully presented. There are dishes that sound a bit strange but taste great for example, gazpacho with beetroot... More

For our main courses we had ribs and pork tenderloin, again both... More

Wonderful and very popular restaurant just by the square in Competa! Lovely food and very friendly and service minded staff. A must if you're in Competa! Probably need to book a table if you go in high season. Highly recommended!

Oscar's is my favourite restaurant in Competa - the food is brilliant, the service is friendly and helpful, always ready to suggest a wine you might like or answer any questions about the food. The gambas pil pil is delicious and the paella fish cakes are wonderful. The steaks are always good quality and it's worth checking out what's on... More

Have been here before and it rarely disappoints.Went for an evening meal after a long journey and it was just what the doctor ordered. Staff were great and the food is always enjoyable. Had the duck this time and it was lovely. It is always nice to get a chupito too.
