This little beauty sits 1/2 way up Buncrana Main Street , lovely big windows so u can sit with a coffee and watch the world go past or sit in the booths to have a lovely affordable meal , the Cajun salmon is to die for . Service is good and the staff are friendly and on the ball

We were passing through Buncrana & decided to stop for a snack. After walking up the Main Street Oscars stood out as something a bit different. On entering it was like a step back in time with the Art Deco interior. The choice of food was excellent & although we only had a snack my wife said that her tuna... More

I visited here with my grandparents who absolutely love the place and I can see why. The service is great, the portions are huge and great value for money (€12.90 for 2 courses) We had to wait around 30 minutes for a table on a busy Sunday (I see a packed restaurant as a good sign) so we went to...

Brief stop in Buncrana while touring the Inishowen peninsula to satisfy some caffeine cravings. We enjoyed fantastic coffee and a slice of their delicious apple pie. Service was very efficient and the quality couldn't have been better Highly recommended if you're in the area

Had a really nice family meal last Tuesday with my sister and extended family during my trip home to Buncrana. We were a party of 12 and a small baby. I was really impressed by the fact that everyone's meal arrived to the table at the same time. Not easy with so many different dishes to cater for. The service... More

We were shown a nice table out of the way and with room for our toddler to just "be". We were served beautiful tasty and hot food and were given the fullest... More
