The hotel is stunning and the service was excellent. The food was terrible. Bland and over cooked in a microwave, minimum portions so we went next door and had pizza express. Menu for lunch was very limited. Would not go back to eat again.

I'd recommend Oscar, but with reservations. The room is lovely but the music too loud and too clubby, especially for a Sunday evening when I went. something more relaxing would have been preferable. Also the food is a bit, 'meh' and not terribly good value for money. Oscar's menu needs an upgrade!

We had a lovely time. The venue is vibrant but laid back, food is lovely and wholesome. Overall the service was great, friendly staff but I had to mark it down because an item was left off our order and 1-2 other details missed. This did not taint the overall experience as the staff were very warm and helpful and the whole brunch was very enjoyable. We will definitely go back.

Oscar restaurant is a lovely place for a date night and also if you want to meet a company of friends. I celebrated my Birthday there and it was one of the greatest experience I have ever had. The staff was friendly and was very helpful for every single request. It is not the first time I spend significant days of my life in this restaurant and definitely will come there again and again.
Thank you for Oscar Restaurant to make my special day very memorable.

Great cocktails and the menu has changed since I last came in October. It’s worth booking a table if you want a drink as it gets very busy on a Friday night.
I had to give the food a rating to upload this review, even though I didn’t eat. So ignore that part !

There was a male staff, has had no idea of set menu, drinks menu, or soup of the day....
And we got a table face to the kitchen door even the restaurant was quite empty.
Not good value in terms of food quality / price/ service / environment.

Prijs kwaliteit niet heel optimaal. Het smaakt ansich wel maar voorgerechten zijn prijzig en weinig creativiteit. Hoofdgerechten zijn redelijk tot goed. Wijnkaart ok. Persoon die gerechten serveerde kwam moe over, overig personeel ok

We had lunch at Oscar on a Saturday at 1:30pm. Not too busy at that time. After asking, very politely, they changed our table, as we weren't very happy seating near the kitchen. The service although good, we felt it was rushed e.g. waiter made mistake still vs sparkling water; I hadn't finished my starter (my husband had), and they came very quickly to clear the plates; water been poured ever so often, always asking how's everything - it's too much.. when you try to have a conversation or you mouth is full. In terms of food quality, starters were okay (scallops and gnocchi) - nothing exquisite, also a bit tasteless. In terms of mains, I had the pancetta pasta, which was OK nothing magical; My husband had the steak but doesn't come with any sides - quality of meat cut was fantastic, but the fact that you end paying nearly £45 for a steak and chips is a bit of a let down. Overall, it's a beautiful space to eat, but we wouldn't go again.

Great location and ambience, I had a business meeting here before a business lunch. Other people liked their food, mine was not so good. Seafood pasta with crab and prawn, the crab was so mushed in as to indistinguishable, very few prawns and the whole dish tasted sweet. A colleague had a Caesar salad with chicken however which looked amazing and came with a whole chicken breast.

We went for brunch. The staff were very friendly and vibe was great. Service a little slow but fine if you’re not rushed. Breakfast was lovely but the fried eggs were hard and the poached eggs were a bit cold. However, that aside the food was fantastic and we will definitely go back.
