“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

Elsewhere I recommended a visit to this restaurant. If you prefer the glitz and glamour, with padded seats, chandeliers hanging low, and sky high prices, then Oscar's is not for you. If you prefer good fare and honest prices, with the meals being served by friendly staff and a host - Tony - circulating and chatting, then you have come to the right place. I spent a couple of hours there, having initially decided to pop in for a quick bite. This turned into a memorable evening sharing wine with francophone Tony, and with Portia and Bongi in attendance. Good stuff, indeed.

“Oscars in Essenwood Road, Durban”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

Oscars in Essenwood Road, Durban is a very popular venue. It is very friendly and a place where you would want to return in the future. Their prices are reasonable as well.

“Inconsistency”
Reviewed 29 June 2013

Food is rarely served as per the menu and the staff rarely get the order correct. Value for money is low to average depending on the order, but the food itself is usually quite tasty - however unreliable

“Where the 'movers and shakers' meet”
Reviewed 29 May 2013

I decided to have breakfast at Oscars, in Hillcrest, before playing in a golf tournament at Cotswold Downs Golf Course. I used to live in this area and I knew that Oscars is popular.
Even so, I was pleasantly surprised as, not only have they kept up those high standards that I remembered, but they have even raised the bar further!
My poached eggs were excellent, as was my Americano coffee. The service was prompt and the food arrived without any undue delay. Oscars are known for this though and long may they continue...
