Our outing took us to Oscar’s Lounge Bar and Restaurant on Union St in Pyrmont, less than a five-minute walk from Harbourside Shopping Centre and the Maritime Museum. Mum, as always wanted something low-key and relaxed so this place seemed rather appropriate as that it appeared contemporary yet unpretentious. The décor was contemporary; the enormous triangular light fixtures on the walls gave a slightly 70’s retro lounge feel to the whole place.
Parmesan and Herb Crusted Chicken Tenders on a Mixed Salad with Seeded Mustard and Basil Mayonaise.
Pan Fried Salmon Fillet with Fresh Asparagus Spears and Hollandaise Sauce.
Chargrilled Chicken Breast with Slow Roasted Mediterranean Vegetables, Baby Spinach and Madeira Jus.
Lemon and Raspberry Souflle Chilled, served with Vanilla Ice Cream and Raspberry Coulis.
Overall, the food was typically reliable bar-style cuisine. The pan fried salmon was the standout of the day, fresh and seared to perfection. Oscar's is a great stop for a casual meal, servings are quite reasonable for the price; mains are around $20 and you could easily fill up within two courses. Their specialties include Aberdeen Angus Steaks, homestyle pastas and gourmet pizzas. If you're not hungry you could always stop by for some drinks at the lounge, Happy Hour starts at 5pm everyday.
