About Our Restaurant

Oscar's Seafood Bistro is located in the historic West-side of Galway City which is also known as the cultural quarter by the local population.

Situated on Dominick street with the best of Galways pubs for both live music and a quiet pint as neighbors, Oscars is a perfect bistro to enjoy a selection of real local foods in particular the Seafood freshly caught off the coast of Galway and sourced from local fishermen and the best of Galways fishmongers.

We update our menu depending on the season, what is best at market and on the fish landed on the day. So be sure to follow us on twitter, on Michael's Blog and on Facebook to keep up-to-date with our evolving menu.
