Consistently good fish and chips and seafood. Good service. We go there regularly and have never been disappointed.

I am from the coast of eastern Canada and very picky when it comes to seafood. My father is even worse. Had excellent scallops. Extremely nice staff. Nice wine. choice. Dad was happy so was I.

The best fresh seafood that I've had in a while. The scallops and mussels were very fresh and incredible. Staff was very attentive and the process reasonable.

Always enjoy the food here. We visit at least twice during our annual trip to the West Coast. However, this year, in spite of the fact that we had reserved a table, on one occasion we were told that ‘someone had just given our table to someone who had walked in without a booking! This was resolved as another table had been vacated and was cleared for us. The same thing happened on the previous visit so maybe the management needs to train the staff about ‘reserved tables’ Apart from this we thoroughly enjoyed our visit but it may have been different if that table had not been vacated. We will be back, however, and I would recommend this restaurant.

We were able to take advantage of the early bird menu and it was delicious and a great value. The restaurant is on the upper floor with great views back to the center of Oban and the bay. Also nice view of McCaig's Tower in the background. Try the wonderful mussels here!
