    Love Oscars, the staff are great, food is delicious and great value. Location is superb. Had lunch today in the outside area and we had an ant invasion. Staff moved us to a different table and didn't charge for the entree affected. Excellent service. One of my favourite places.

    The food was great, friendly service pleasing. Inside a little noisy so ate outside. Slow to clear plates after meal, and had to go inside to ask for coffees. Good variety of menu. Would go back again, just a bit more service would be excellent.

    Pizza was delicious, crispy base, fresh ingredients and perfect size for two people to share. Staff were friendly and efficient. A good selection of vegetarian food with vegan options. Definitely a favourite restaurant for me.

    I had a pizza, but the base was like cardboard. They told me that they pre-cooked their pizza bases in house. OK, they should go into business supplying them to supermarkets. My partner's pasta had a similar problem. The linguini was stuck together into thick strands, as you get when you pre-cook it and then give it an extra few minutes when needed. Friendly and attentive staff - no problem there. But the food was well below standard.

    The staff were very pleasant however we were seated by 1.10pm and food didn’t come until after 2.00pm. Staff were apologetic but when you come down for a day at the wineries you want a quick feed and continue onto next booking. Food was nice but not exceptional which is unfortunate. Heard many lovely reviews prior but our experience is unable to back these up.

    Beautiful food. We both had pizzas the 12 inch size was more than enough the restaurant has a nice setting which feels like you are separated from other groups . And the staff were amazing and very friendly.

    Was our first night out together in 10 months since our baby was born. Great to have a date night together however the food was very poor. My wife had the risotto special which was very gloopy and over cooked and I had the nocky which was burnt and no flavour but burnt tasting. The service was kind and polite but we were never asked how our meal was even know we left our plates pretty much full. Even when I paid I was never asked. This to me is falling way short of a good experience. I hadn't visited Oscar's in over 10 years after having a bad experience but I thought we would give them another shot and was left feeling very disappointed. We won't be back and will vote with our feet. This is our honest feedback. I have been in the industry for many many years and expect more from a restaurant such as one which has been around for so long. Sorry Oscar's, your not winning any awards from us.

    The prawn pasta dish lacked seasoning and the fettuccine was all stuck together so it was in clumps. I was disappointed as the menu description sounded amazing. The pizzas that other people had looked good and were enjoyed by others in my group.

    The staff were friendly and accomodating, the food was reasonable but the waiting time for food delivery was extremely long (about an hour from order to table)

    We have loved Oscars for many years but took our friends for the first time. They were very impressed by the quality of food, ambience and service. Would have preferred to sit outside but consider ourselves lucky to get a table. We’ll definitely be back.

    Oscars has one of their biggest days the day we went but they made a couple of boo boos with our food but were only too pleased to compensate by taking some off our bill. Their service was great- helpful and friendly

    My partner had the fetteccine which was bland and very short on seafood. I had the mushroom agnoltti which had a burnt butter taste to the sauce. Pasta was undercooked for both meals. Won't be back.

About the restaurant

Family favourite McLaren Vale is famous for many things; notably the wine of course. But if you lived in Adelaide for more than five minutes you would be also familiar with Oscar’s – a must-visit for any birthday celebration, quick drive through town, leisurely afternoon in the sun or hiding away in winter by their gorgeous open fire. Delightfully casual, yet with high-quality food and service, this popular Mediterranean eatery also caters for those wanting to have a night off cooking, with an excellent takeaway option. Their wine list is extensive, with more than your average number available by the glass and plenty of choice no matter your age or budget. Oscar’s is synonymous with smiling, easy service and a flexibility that is refreshing given the minefield of politics that inhabits some dining establishments. Nothing is too much trouble and they welcome even drop-in customers wanting a quick coffee and a delicious homemade pastry. Best Dish: Pizza or smoked Kessler Pork
