This place is outstanding. The quality of the food is 2nd to none. So fresh, and amazing taste. We went in a rain storm, but even that couldn't dampen our enjoyment of the experience. Despite the rain, every outside bench was full. First stop next time we're in Oban.

This is a good place to start with. If you are looking for a special treat then look no further. Oyster, crabs, scallops, prawns to name a few. They have a table outside which if your lucky you can sit down. You couldn't get it any fresher. Prices are good.

Found this place via Tripadvisor. We weren't disappointed; the food was excellent, fresh and so cheap compared to all (inferior) options in other more well known places. We had the langoustines, herring and a platter. All of this came to less than £30. It's not frills but that doesn't matter, the seafood is what you're there for. Even the lashing... More

Visited twice this week on our annual trip to Oban. Both times I had the mussels in wine, these are absolutely to die for. Highly recommended as this tiny hit has so much choice.
