Happy faces welcome you. The room is plain and clean. Fish dishes are tasty (avoid calamari) and pies even better. Very efficient and friendly service. Since they don't serve alcohol we have been given instructions to buy wine and beer from nearby store and consume in the restaurant at no cost.

We were staying in Oban and desperate for food. This was our first choice and proved to be a good one. Managed to get a table near the front so that we could see the ferry come in. Plenty to suit us on the menu and we opted for fish and chips. Our meal was excellent and we were pleased... More

The DiCiacca family have been running successful restaurants in Oban for 3 generations. Onorio and Elvira first came to Oban from Picinisco, Italy in 1959 to open their first chip shop. The Family's dedication to their customers and delicious recipes with big Italian flavours, have kept the Locals and the Visitors to Oban full and happy for generations. Renato and son Antonio, continue this long line of culinary tradition with the Oban Fish Bar & Restaurant and Nories Fish & Chip shop, which is just a little further along on George Street in Oban. Being in The Seafood Capital of Scotland, The Oban Fish Bar & Restaurant offers a wide choice of Fish and Seafood to tantalise your taste buds, but for the non fish eaters amongst you, enjoy the hand cut chips, try the delicious homemade Italian dishes or give the Gourmet Burgers from the local butcher a go. Maybe you're looking for authentic handmade Stone Baked Italian Pizza's? We've got that covered as well. Renato also likes to keep up with the latest developments which means we now also offer Gluten Free batter so everyone can enjoy the DiCiacca Family's delicious dishes.
