A late booking on a referral through manager Walter via Kanella, we had a stunning dinner. The snail starter was simply the best snails we've had. I enjoyed a calamari and chicken Thai salad, that was fresh, and the Calamari was brilliant. My wife enjoyed...the falafel stack that was high quality. Friendly warm service, sharp kitchen in timing all freshly made. Easy and pleasure to recommend.More

Have previously had lunch at this establishment, but unfortunately not at the previous standard. One of our party had to return to the lasagne as it had a strong curry flavour. The restaurant is always busy and hope next we come here the food is...of a better quality.More

Great dinner experience here. Kids had pasta I had pizza and husband had oxtail curry- all fabulous. Milkshakes are extravagant and delicious. Can’t wait for the day I can finish my main course so that I can order dessert!

Popped in for breakfast just as they opened their doors and were busy setting up for the day. I had an hour to burn between appointments, so I started thinking coffee but progresses to wild mushrooms on sour dough. Service was sharp, the americano coffee...which was as ordered piping hot. The wild mushrooms, spinach and almonds was also very good but a tad cold. All in all I had a good meal and will be back.More

Such a disappointment - guess you can book a table on line but not call and book/reserve a table or was the manager reserving for preferred diners. We were told they do not reserve tables just come well so many reserved sign tables empty left...us standing with no table.More

Popped in for breakfast and despite how busy it was, the service was good. Lovely touch having the manager checking up on the tables. I tried the Welsh rabbit .. not recommended at all and actually returned my meal. My husband enjoyed his meal.

Have not had toasted chicken mayonnaise sandwiches for a good while, was good to have old favourites. Ayanda welcomed us back like we were part of the family. Service was good and sandwiches were delicious.

Every time I eat somewhere else I realize just how good Oscar's cafe really is. Service and food are always impeccable. Best coffee in Durban too. Now delivery options too!

Once again Oscar’s Hillcrest was amazing. The staff are always so helpful and kind. The manager Walter double checked the order to make sure everything was just right. The food was delicious as always. Oscar’s Hillcrest has become our favourite restaurant in Durban because the...food, service and overall experience is always excellent. Well done Oscar’s. We will be back very soon!More

Oscars have such good staff with great service. The menu is extensive and the Food excellent. The variety on the menu caters for everyone, curries are top class especially the oxtail curry . The chicken flattie is also tremendous. Great steaks and also family fovourites...like bangers and mash etc. They also have fantastic pizzas and a good wine selection and beer drinkers won’t be disappointed.More
