This is a lovely off the beaten path restaurant if you want to get away from the hustle bustle of Queen and King Streets. The bar also looks very nice. The luncheon menu is a bit small but the food was good if pricey. We...More

Perhaps we were spoiled as our experience with the Oban restaurant came via the breakfast that was included with our stay at the inn, but the service and the food were exceptional. Interesting buffet, hot items plus fruit, good assortment of breads. Excellent all round.

We were lucky to be around for the Fabulicious menu that offered a fixed price for 3 courses. I have a gluten allergy and was accommodated quite nicely with warm bread and butter to start. Good quality food, lovely ambiance.

Great small menu, prepared a la minute - takes a little time :) Locally grown produce, special variations of "traditional" fare, like fish&chips made of tuna tartare on a home made potato crisp

When I made the reservation weeks in advance I asked for a window table. I was instead given a side table beside a wine rack full of dirty, dusty bottles that I hope are only for "show" and not used as the two bright lights...More
