Oscar's Seafood Bistro
Michael O’Meara’s landmark book, “Sea Gastronomy”, is not just a brilliant detailing of the riches of the oceanic world, though it is all that and more. But, just as significantly, it is a brilliant detailing of Mr O’Meara’s own creativity and culinary curiosity, focused on the piscine wonders of the Irish seas, with those wonders brought home to the lovely restaurant Mr O’Meara and his partner, Sinead Hughes, have run in Galway for the last 15 years. Oscar’s Seafood Bistro is a vital address in Galway city because when you eat here, you eat the food of a chef who is always seeking, and finding, inspiration. O’Meara is alive to his ingredients, alive to his kitchen, and Oscar’s showcases cooking that always has an improvisatory quality. In truth, Mr O’Meara never cooks the same dish twice, because he knows every seafood cook can never step into the same ocean. So, every bite on every plate in Oscar’s is vivid, energised, in-the-moment. Ms Hughes brings hospitality skills that are the equal of Mr O’Meara’s culinary skills, and together they make a profound Galway experience.
