    Always a nice place to visit, although we were placed in the inside/outside area and it was very noisy. The food was good and a reasonable cost, especially the fish and chips.

    Food tasty and plentiful and was served promptly. Staff friendly, helpful and hard-working. Plenty of choice for food and wine. Thank you for a nice meal on a cold evening.

    The food was way below standard, tasteless pasta and a disappointing starter. Were were seated on what was the former veranda turned into a corridor, where we were between a brick chimney & a brick column. Just awful. The only positive note was that the staff were friendly, but not enough to overcome our poor seating & substandard food.

    Great food, service and staff attitude. Could not do more for you. My restaurant itself is basic (rustic) but would be much better outside in summer.

    A nice surprise, pasta was great and the desert cake a beauty, lime somewhere in the title. We were served in a timely manner but others may not have been so lucky.

    The food was unbelievably good, it exceeded my expectations in fact. Loved it and will be back again! This is the 2nd or 3rd time I’ve been here and I always look forward to returning again.

    Honestly, the worst dining experience I’ve ever had. Incorrect starters brought out, there were 6 of us and 2 of our mains were incorrect. A calzone was undercooked inside, we were advised by a supervisor that this particular calzone doesn’t cook very well and the wait staff should’ve told us this? What? Why is it on the menu then? We were then advised that since the kitchen were now closed for pizzas and calzones, the pizza and calzone that were incorrect could not be remade. We were advised by a waitress that she would pass our feedback into her manager as the manager prefers to hear complaints from staff, not customers directly? When we paid our bill they advised us they had to apologise to another 12 tables because of mistakes and poor service. What is going on? Oscars used to be amazing. Incredibly disappointed and we will never go back.

    Service was great. The meal I ordered I felt was undercooked and barely warm. Requested it to be recooked. Message delivered by waitstaff was that Chef would not recook it and if I wasn’t happy with that to order something else “ on the house”, which I did. Credit to our waitperson for their composure and her empathy after the chef refused to “cook” the meal

    Great service from Joshua, terrific food and a lovely ambience on a cold but sunny autumn day! Oscars always produces a great menu and wine list.

    Great location and wonderful Monther's Day menu. Service started off pretty slow but picked up after a while. Food was lovely and the heater kept us warm and toasty. Would recommend for groups and families.

    Starters were nice and came quickly, there was a fair wait for mains, but it was busy. The steak was mostly fat and gristle, and inedible, with the duck fat potatoes dry and hard. We thought the other meals we ordered were expensive for the serving size. Was only asked if everything was ok a minute after the mains were delivered, so hadn't actually tasted at that point, and then wasn't asked again. We chose this restaurant to celebrate a special birthday, and were given a voucher as a birthday present, only to be told upon paying that they don't actually accept that voucher and shouldn't be on the best gift cards website, so be aware if that's your intention.

    This was our second visit to Oscars. The fettuccine was fabulous, and the warm chicken salad was full of flavour. My only concern was that a door was left open -it was a chilly evening and the cold breeze coming through was uncomfortable enough that I wanted to eat and leave ASAP. Staff were friendly and helpful.

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
