Chips appear to be frozen, more like Indian takeaway or Chinese chips but bigger, certainly not Scottish chippy chips, fish tasteless and haggis overcooked. Not the worst I have had but certainly not the best and expensive to boot. Shop was clean and tidy and staff helpful and friendly. Probably won't be back if I can help it.

Not sure where the other 'poor' reviewers have been eating, maybe they reviewed the other fish and chip restaurant on the same street by mistake? This place serves lovely fresh food, nice staff, good prices, as good a fish and chip meal as you will find anywhere.

Amazing fish and chips, fast and friendly service (pleased when we showed them Rick Steves' book - he's right again)

On a damp, overcast evening it was good to receive some fishy fare, fresh that day from the harbour. Lovely sized portions and delicious fish!

My husband I love fish and chips. When traveling, it is often hard to find a good shop. We saw a note in the window of the Oban Fish & Chip Shop indicating Rick Stein had eaten there. Not knowing who this person is (we're from the West Coast of the U.S.), we decided to see if Rick Stein knows... More

I'm not a huge fan of seafood but I ate this! It is truly an amazing place to have fish and chips. It's a huge meal that will keep you going for some time, and it's totally worth it.

Having sat in the restaurant ( I needed to get inside!) I ordered haddock chips and peas. I had a short wait for the food but only because it was cooked to order. The fish was was fresh with crispy but not overdone batter and the chips were cooked just right. Oh, and they were proper mushy peas too, and... More

My husband has the premium salmon cakes. I had pizza. We shared mac and cheese. My husband said the premium salmon cakes were ok. Nothing special, but no complaints. The pizza was thin crust and good. However, the mac and cheese was outstanding. The pasta was cooked to perfection and the cheese was tangy and gooey.

Second visit, came last year when visiting Oban and made a bee line for this place again after such lovely fish and chips last year. Not disappointed as again had a super plate full of fish, chips, mushy peas, bread and butter and a pot of tea all for £11. Not many tables as premises are take away but if... More

Fabulous lunch yet again in the Oban Fish & Chip shop! Discovered this little place a few years ago and manage to pop in about once a year (when in Scotland) for the best fish and chips ever. Fish, chips, peas, bread and butter and a hot drink for £11.00 which is excellent value. Everything is cooked to absolute perfection... More
