We loved Oscars and spent lots of time there while becoming open water diver certified. The happy hour was great and the beer cold! Love the addition of the beer coozies to keep them that way. After a few days the staff even called us by name. The banana pancakes in the morning are still on my mind-so good! We... More

We had booked a week with full board with thresher shark diving and they sent us here to eat, being the place right above the diving shop. After 1 day we cancelled our full board and went to eat somewhere else. I am sorry to say it,they were really nice, but the food was of no or bad taste and... More

Please excuse the late submission of this response - I thought my response had been posted at the time but it must not have processed. As owner I take all feedback seriously and try and resolve every issue. I was aware these guests had decided against full board but I don't believe we were told the reason. We happily refunded...

It's a good place which delivers. It's nothing extraordinary, but we had multiple meals. The staff is friendly. On our last night we kept them up until 2am - long after all other guests had left. No complaints!

The staff here were really friendly. The food was decent and varied, nothing outstanding, but super convenient and reasonably priced. We spent many times after diving sitting on the roof drinking beers over Scrabble. If you are diving with Thresher Shark Divers you can add you bar and restaurant tab to your diving bill. I simply started a tab at... More

Good food, good service, fantastic bar: coldest beer of Malapascua. Be careful with the stairs, sometimes can be slippery (expecially if you are drunk and it's easy to drink here)! I like the feel of this place, expecially for the happy hours. The staff of the diveshop is always here to great their guests.

we ate here most of all. really enjoyed the filippino dishes, but avoid the chicken tanola (essentially chicken and pickles boiled in fairy dishsoap). most seating is outdoors with no umbrellas, so sit inside if it smells of rain.

Overall food is nice and reasonably priced. Love the home made chicken nuggets and pork teriyaki. Only downside is the food serving speed.
