Crowne Plaza bar modelled on a French wine-tasting cellar

From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2011
Already one of the finest and least pretentious wine bars in the country, Oscars also serves food that’s much more than just something to soak up the drink. The rustic French-wine-cellar theme of the place means whitewashed walls, barrels used as tables, and a live accordion player – and the menu fits in with it nicely. The steak frîtes are a reliable Gallic classic and we can highly recommend the cheese board. Most notably there are great daily deals on offer throughout the week – the Dhs99 all-you-can-eat moules frîtes being one of the best. Although the food isn’t something you’d expressly come here for, it’s very rarely less than a solid accompaniment to the drink, which will always be the key attraction.
