The Roman Oasis Restaurant and Bar Bar in rural Manilva, Costa del Sol


1 May 2019

After much soul searching and the fact that next week I’m going to be 74, I’m happy to say that I’ve suddenly made the decision to retire and close The Roman Oasis after 36 amazing years. It’s been on my mind for the last few years and I’ve always justified re-opening but time passes rapidly and it’s time to smell the roses.

It is very fitting to close now and not do a ‘last season’ with all which it entails and it’s nice to finish when the business was still packing them in. I know this may disappoint some of you and I would like to thank the thousands and thousands of people who walked through the gates and I hope I gave you a good time. You certainly gave me one!


11 November 2020: However it is not the end of The Roman Oasis as we are in the process of renewing the website as The Roman Oasis will be available for weddings, parties and other events when the virus is over and things return to normal.

All the best,
Paul Hickling
