Oscar's is my favourite restaurant in Competa - the food is brilliant, the service is friendly and helpful, always ready to suggest a wine you might like or answer any questions about the food. The gambas pil pil is delicious and the paella fish cakes are wonderful. The steaks are always good quality and it's worth checking out what's on... More

Have been here before and it rarely disappoints.Went for an evening meal after a long journey and it was just what the doctor ordered. Staff were great and the food is always enjoyable. Had the duck this time and it was lovely. It is always nice to get a chupito too.

It's always a joy to visit Oscars. Although relatively new here in town we're always made to feel like old friends. Simply the best Mojitos. To eat, the best way is to arrive with friends and share a table full of delicious tapas all creatively conceived and lovingly prepared. Favourites are the Berenjenas, the Paella fishcakes, the puy lentils, the... More

Had dinner here on holiday. Nice range in menu. We all loved what we had. Will return. It's a very nice restaurant. Possibly the more expensive in the town but it does deliver what you want. Good food and wine

We were visiting our friends in the town of Competa in Spain with our first to a restaurant. The restaurant was not far from the acommodation in a narrow street, tables have recently been allowed on the street so the choice of eating inside or outside is an option. A warm welcome to what is currently rated as the best... More

A lovely lunch after getting lost around Competa! The food was superb. We enjoyed the fact that it was just off the square and a little quieter.

If you don't eat anywhere else whilst in Spain you need to eat here. Food was amazing their young chef Harry will be world class so remember you ate his food first here. Waiting staff were helpful without being intrusive and so friendly. Would happily go back to Spain just to have a meal here. Setting is lovely in the... More
