Ranked: #3 of 21 restaurants in Bay Of Plenty

One half of Oscar and Otto is Oscar Restaurant and Wine Bar, where home cooking and family-friendly vibes reign supreme.

Informal and cosy, the restaurant is compact with minimal decor; don't be surprised if you touch shoulders with other diners. Here, it's all about community and there's no harm in going home with a full tummy and some new pals.

The menu gives all our foodie comforts a modern treatment. Begin by dipping in and out of a charcuterie board or indulge in a seared salmon crudo or beef cheek Wellington. For mains, carry on your meaty adventure with a sous vide lamb rump and a sweet carrot puree. Alternatively, go for their scotch fillet with butternut puree or the maple glazed duck breast; that's right, they're masters of sweet and savoury! Vegetarians fear not, there's a gorgeously decadent and gooey cauliflower risotto with truffle oil.

As for drinks, the clue is in the name. With a magnificent wine bar selling bottles from around the world, you can be sure of a fantastic recommendation from any of the friendly staff.

We had a choice of seats as the first customers, and found the atmosphere welcoming. Amazing food and they catered well for a Coeliac diet. It was nice to have a choice of gluten free options in both mains and dessert. Fantastic dining experience overall!

Food insanely good, each dish 10 out of 10. This is the best restaurant we have been to in New Zealand. Service also exceptional. Thanks first table & Oscar Restaurant & Wine Bar

We dined at Oscars on Friday night before going to a show. Our lovely Spanish waiter was extremely helpful and knowledgeable re the details of the menu, nothing was too much trouble. My wife love the salmon, thought it was cooked to perfection. I enjoyed the market fish which was super tasty with corn puree and leeks.
We finished off our meal by sharing the absolutely stunning espresso mousse with anglaise and caramel icecream, WOW what a way to finsh a meal. It was the perfect start to our evening and was ended by a fabulous concert with Post Modern Jukebox at Baycourt. Hamish stopped by to have a chat, I certainly didn't expect him to remember me, but guess what........
The only negative, is that it could be quite noisy if it was a busy night.
From us, a definite thumbs up.

Four of us dined preshow. The Peach Bellini was the perfect drink to begin with for me. The others had beer and wine. The Pate and the Beef Cheeks were delicious as starters. For the Mains - two of us had the Lamb which was melt-in-the-mouth, the salmon was very much enjoyed and I had the duck. Beautifully presented and full of flavour but not the most tender that I have had. We shared Roast Herby Potatoes (wonderful), a green salad and the brussel sprouts which were throughly enjoyed by those of us who like them. Our waiter was friendly and welcoming and the atmosphere was relaxed. A shame we had no time left to try dessert as I had my eye on the Lemon Tart. Next time!

Amazing, highly recommend Oscars, fantastic attentive service and the meals next level and of the highest quality. Restaurant decor very modern. A very enjoyable evening, thank you

- dined at Oscar Restaurant & Wine Bar on

First time at this restaurant and we certainly weren’t disappointed, a table of four and every one of us was more than happy with our meal selections (although my dad did have steak envy when he saw mine arrive at the table). Service was impeccable and friendly, we will certainly be back again to try out more selections on the menu. Thank you!

- dined at Oscar Restaurant & Wine Bar on

The food was gorgeous and the service was lovely. The atmosphere of Oscars was just delightful, luxurious, simple but incredibly stylish. We went for my mums 60th and everyone was kind and very accommodating about any slight changes we wanted to make to our meal. We will be back!

We were greeted at the door and seated at nice small table.
We started with a glass of Syrah for a start.
Then after very informative conversation we opted for cheek
beef wellington - it was very well presented and tested superb.
It was almost as good and big as a main dish.
The site pictures shows it perfectly as it was offered to us.
After very short while we got ducks with associated salad
on the table. They were made flawlessly.
The ducks were juicy and tender.
The presentation was good as its taste.

Absolutely devine. If you want somewhere special to go for some delicious food, would recommend.

We dined at Oscars restaurant and wine bar last night and had a beautiful starter and main course. We began with the Beef Cheeks Wellington which was melt in the mouth delicious. My husband then had the Duck and I had the Lamb, both of which were beautifully presented and tasted amazing. My lamb was the best I have ever tasted and was so tender and juicy. Unfortunately, neither of us could manage a dessert which looked so tempting on the menu but we will definitely be back to try them, as the service was so friendly and attentive. Our new favourite place to eat and would highly recommend.Thank you!

- dined at Oscar Restaurant & Wine Bar on

Our first time at Oscar's and what a wonderful experience! The starters we had were a very comprehensive Antipasta platter and Cheek Wellingtons, which were tender beef cheek wrapped in filo pastry, absoltutely scrumcious! Our Mains were the Kingfish fish of the day and the flavours were extremely delicious! We will most definitely be returning!

- dined at Oscar Restaurant & Wine Bar on

Both service and food were great! Loved it!

- dined at Oscar Restaurant & Wine Bar on

What a gem. Absolutely everything was delicious! Awesome menu, I even had a special Midori Splice cocktail especially made for me. The lamb was literally the best I have e v e r tasted. Melted in your mouth, the guys loved the steaks and the desserts were mouthwatering. Wonderful staff with impeccable service ended off a perfect evening We can’t stop talking about it. We certainly will return

A nice restaurant with great views of the water. Staff were friendly and very welcoming. The menu is very small. Food was well presented although the ‘fondue’ was not fondue and should be renamed. Definitely worth a visit on first table.

Great service. Great selection of beers and wines etc. Food was nice but not outstanding and for us there was no atmosphere. Maybe because it was a quiet Sunday night. I don't know that we wld go back. However we did look at Ottos (the other half) next door and wld like to try a brekkie there some day.
