The Oasis looked like a good place to grab a lateish quick takeaway lunch. We didn't have time to wait so we decided to grab a pie. Bad decision! The only thing in my steak pie was gristle. Certainly nothing you could call meat. Awful. On the up side the chicken and mushroom pie my husband had was passable. My... More

We stopped here for a quick snack last month and were impressed with the scones and coffee. Simple stuff, but very fresh and quite delicious.

In our wee 3 day weekend tour this is the best meal we've had. Highly recommend the eggs benedict. Playroom for kids great service and a great stop on our travelling day. Thanks

I got some take away coffee here. Friendly and fast service and a good coffee. There is nothing wrong here.

Staying at a B & B so ate at the Oasis. Only wanted a light meal so my steak sandwich with fries hit the spot. Was a quiet night so food served quickly.

This place seems to hide behind a few names. The receipts call it the olive grove, but they have renamed the outside. Possibly to hide how bad it is. I understand, this place is on a tourist highway, but that does not excuse the painfully expensive prices. $4.50 for a 600ml coke! 17$ for a steak sandwich which is more... More

The milkshske at the Oasis didn't have enough syrup, the capaccino was ok, but the americano came with milk in it when a REAL americano has water in a jug to add. ANd it was barely lukewarm. We...

Although clean and food presented well it was quite limited with its selection. Maybe we struck the wrong time with limited staff but our food took ages to come even thought it we ordered a simple meal. Hope it improves in the future.
