Best fish and chips we have eaten anywhere

Best restaurant my son and I visited in Oban, so much so we came back for a second time in our week stay. Both the set menus and the a lla carte were very good and the quality of the fish and sea food was first class.

Had an early evening dinner for 3 - nothing majorly wrong with anything, but nothing stood out as worthy of praise. Disappointingly little in the way of fresh fish choices on the menu, given that the place bills itself as a fish restaurant. Starters were pretty good and the main course fish and chips, one of very few fish options,... More

Coast is set in the working and tourist town of Oban on the coast of the Highlands. A block off of the harbour, the warm earth-tones decor are a soothing setting for a nice dinner. We had deliciously fresh seafood (not surprising) as well as nicely turned out organic salads. Deserts were freshly prepared and varied. Service was friendly and... More

We chose Coast over another restaurant that was closed on the Monday we were in Oban and very pleased that we did. We went to the other restaurant the following night and it was nowhere near as good but that could have been our choice of food. Anyway getting back to Coast, a started of their in house hot smoked... More

Myself and my mother ate in here at the end of July, we asked a local for some advice and she recommended this little place, I was delighted with the food just some simple fish and chips but is was quality, my mum had two starters in stead of a main meal the muscles and the pate, overall the place...

What a meal from the moment you walk through the door. Service is excellent from start to finish and as for the food wow, from starter to dessert très bon. Well worth the money.

An overnight stay in Oban before the ferry. we had read good reviews (in the press) about Coast and were not disappointed. The table d'hote menu was available all night so a very reasonably priced meal. The mussel starter was excellent and the beef as well.

Rather more upmarket than most of the Oban eateries, booking turned out to be necessary. Offered an unusual (and welcome) menu option - two starters and a pud, an ideal choice for my wife, as she doesn't have a large appetite: cullen skink, followed by salmon fish cake, followed by warm citrus cake with creme fraiche, all excellent. I chose... More
