We ate here last year a couple nights and could not wait to come back, it did not disappoint us. This is the place for fresh seafood and wonderful desserts. Servers are very nice and attentive to your table. Highly recommend reservations a its very small and very busy

Best meal in all of Galway. I'm not even a seafood eater and everything was SO delicious! It was the best shrimp I have ever had in my life. I highly recommend and be sure to be a reservation beforehand just in case!

Excellent food, exceptional service. Quality and service was superb. I highly recommend this establishment. One word of caution, they do NOT accept American Express. I recommend this restaurant and urge that you make reservations as they are very busy, and very good!

From start to finish, I would give this place a 10/10. The Service was excellent, and the food, well... out of this world, the fish is cooked to perfection and the seasoning is also perfectly balanced. We opted for the evening specials of hot oysters, absolutely divine, followed by cod with chipotle and monkfish in a mussel broth, both served... More

Great flavors, ambience and service. We loved our fish cakes starter, as well as the salmon main and flavorful vegetables. Food presentation was appreciated.

I had been wanting to visit oscars for a long time and while I wasn't disappointed it wasn't exactly what I had expected. It's a small cosy restaurant and it's clear that the fish here is the star of the show. The fish was perfectly cooked and the flavours were delicate so that everything could be tasted. I was slightly... More

Galway is a favorite destination and one of the attractions that keeps us coming back is Oscar's Seafood Bistro. The first meal I had here might have been the best seafood dinner I've had anywhere (I eat a LOT of seafood). My three companions were of the same opinion. I've been back twice since then on subsequent trips and nothing... More

We had read the reviews of Oscar's online and decided to seek it out for dinner on our first night in Galway. So glad we did ~ the meal was superb and the best we had during our whole week in Ireland. When we walked in, it was about 8 and the restaurant was very quiet (only 3 other tables... More

There is a reason that this restaurant is highly rated on Trip Adviser. The seafood dinner was absolutely superb as were the starters and desserts. The portions were not skimpy and great value for the money. We plan on returning again and again.

Thank JWF44
