Think twice if you want to have good service. We went to Oscars Cafe for dinner while visiting Buncrana. We were seated at a table but were never given menus, so after about 10 mins, we were able to get someone's attention for menus. I continually tried to get the attention of the women who sat us and made eye... More

Great spot for lunch or quick dinner. It's small so it can get full very fast, especially on the weekends. The food is nice and filling. It's good comfort food. It mightn't be a place you rave about for years to come but it's the kind of place that you can depend on for good food and quick service

We visited on a Sunday when the place was starting to fill up. This cafe is quite large, with a strong art deco theme inside and out. The staff were friendly and efficient. Menu was limited unless you wanted a full lunch, but we still found plenty to satisfy us. We would definitely visit this place again.

Another lovely meal. Treated ourselves on a recent trip to Ireland. Meal so tasty and great value. The waiting staff attentive without being creepy. We have been with family on another occasion and they lovely the large portions.

Great food and service, a visit is a must every time we are in Buncrana.Great selection for kids. Small outdoor seating which is nice for those that still smoke.
