After walking the streets and getting an idea of where to eat, we selected Coast. It seemed to have a bit more style and presence than other places we had seen. There was a generous variety of both food and wine to choose from. The only hiccup was a delay in serving the main course which sometimes happens. We were... More

We're frequent visitors to Oban, and have stood outside Coast often looking at the menu posted at the entrance, and prior to our visit had always decided to plump for a less formal meal, either in the excellent Coasters or the pizza/pasta joint at the waterfront. We both agreed after our meal though that Coast has provided the best meal... More

We were very lucky to get a table here. The leek and potato soup with smoked haddock was amazing. The whole meal was very good, the only thing I would say was that service was a bit slow.

Food was very nice, good presentation, service was attentive, a short walk from our hotel and then along the harbour on the way back.

We ate our last dinner here and it was wonderful. We order the "Light Bite" dinner with a starter and main dish. Enjoyed butternut squash risotto and fishcakes and then moved on to the salmon filet and Dunlop Goats’ Cheese, Potato and Puff Pastry Slice. The restaurant is located in a old bank building but has a bright updated interior.... More

I was in Coast last year and enjoyed it. I was notdisappointed this year.My dad opted for the three course menu wich had a variety of dishes. Mum had lamb that was lovely and pink. And my fish was cooked to perfection. Service was excellent even though they were busy. Booking is a good idea. Another great evening.

Don't be put off by the lack of view,you're going there for the food and this restaurant is one of the best. There was nothing I could fault and it was one of the best... More

As Oban is gifted with some great scenic views, this restaurant started with a distinct disadvantage! However, the quality of the food made up for the lack of scenery. As my favourite soup is Cullen Skink I opted for this from the menu. I was rewarded with perhaps the best I've ever had. THis was followed by delicious sole fillets.... More

Thank goodness we had reservations because they turned folks away the entire time we were there. The staff was attentive, but our food was rather slow in coming. They could improve their turn if they could get the food to the table slightly faster, and be more alert when you want your check. Have to say that the waitstaff were... More
