Spanish with a twist of Mexican and everything in between
I imagine Oscar must have been a traveller who enjoyed culinary delights from around the globe. The Melbourne based restaurant located on New Quay Promenade, has a mixed Spanish menu, and a casual atmosphere, making it the right venue for a quiet meal with a small group of friends.
The four of us enjoyed Friday night dinner at Oscar's Table, making use of an unbeatable deal from Living Social site - $30 per person for and entree, main, dessert and house wine! An opportunity to try a restaurant which we may not have otherwise. Keep and eye out on the site!
With menu options including tuna patties, salt and pepper calamari, and pork belly, for entree, there was a taste to suit everyone. Beautifully plated, generous serves, and satisfying nods of content from all tasters.

For mains, the men chose Angus steak, the lady had chicken paella as recommended by the waitress, and myself opted for the Mexican seafood gumbo - a tomato soup based, and resembling a casserole rather than a New Orlean's Creole rice based gumbo I was craving. Disappointingly, there were few gluten free options and surprisingly no vegetarian options. The chefs may be willing to accommodate to requests, as many are in Melbourne, so do not be shy to ask.

Desserts were the best part of the meal, possibly explained by my sweet tooth. Three of us ordered the sticky date pudding with vanilla ice-cream - warm, sensationally sweet and drizzled with a rich butterscotch sauce; I would have been happy to have this as my main!
