We went for the "early bird special" and were delighted with our mussels and fresh fish. Pleasant atmosphere and friendly staff.

We visited Oscar's for dinner. A reservation is highly recommended, and we got friendly help from the restaurant when trying to find a time. The place is pleasantly peaceful but not too quiet, and the service staff friendly, building a relaxed atmosphere. We picked our dinner mostly from the catch of the day list and they were good, even delicious.... More

Quite the best seafood ever! Very slightly off the Galway tourist track but don't be misled by some slightly shabby neighbours as Oscars is superb. Stylish decor and great ambience are a given and the food is just divine. Excellent menu options, ample portions and great cookery and at a good price too - what's not to like. Book ahead... More

Visited Oscars Seafood Bistro on a recent visit to Galway. We came in for early dinner and were promptly seated and served. Fantastic food and service. Highly recommended. Looking forward to a return trip soon.

Oscar's offers very good seafood, has good service and is a nice quiet atmosphere. It is outside the crowded area which made it quieter, but did not appear to be the best of areas.

2 starters, 2 mains, 2 desserts, 2 g&ts, 5 large glasses wine for €116 and wirth every penny. The squid and octopus starter was a particular highlight closely followed by the haddock main. I would advise booking though cos it gets pretty full and you would not want to miss out.

Great restaurant if you like locally sourced fresh fish. Book in advance many people were turned away whilst we were there. Crab starter with garlic crostini scrumptious, and my husband's baby octopus starter a must, truly delicious. Husband's main of monkfish was fresh and beautifully presented and sole in leek/butter sauce with champ was to die for. The waitress Sophie... More

Just ridiculously delicious dining. Turbo and Red Gurnard 5/5. My dish was so good I can't even remember what my wife had. Some of the best service we had in Ireland. Sometimes people aren't as friendly/welcoming as you would like, but here the server was lovely! Just dine here. You will be happy.
