So, my fiancee and I decided to backpack through the United Kingdom. After 7 days of delightful travel we ended up in the beautiful town of Oban. There we decided to dress up a little (we were backpacking so didn't have many options) and have a appetizer and some drinks. The Coast restaurant looked delightful and the menu looked delicious,...

My husband and I had a nice meal here our last night in Oban (and a rainy and windy one). I had the chicken as I was seafooded out by this point, and it was cooked perfectly. My husband enjoyed his dish as well (I forget what he had). The service was great and the wine list was ok. It... More

Came upon Coast after finding some of the other restaurants didn't have much of a seafood selection. The menu here was varied and interesting. My daughter had the delicious burger that was not oversized. I had the two course dinner for 14.50 GBP where the menu still gave you very nice choices. I had the mussels that were sweet and... More

Stayed in Oban a week and have to say the whole town has a dearth of great restaurants---but Coast tops the list with its triple-fried chips and outstanding desserts! Our table of four especially loved the fish cakes and wonderful veg offerings (the roasted carrots were divine!) Only complaint is that the burger was ordered medium and came extremely well-done---my... More

Went for a walk around Oban trying to find somewhere to eat after having checked on the internet as to what was available. When we arrived and asked if they had a table for two we where told that if we waited 5 minutes then they could make a table available. All in all we had a very nice meal... More

I ate here with my partner & son. Wednesday early evening & the restaurant was very busy. I really enjoyed my starter of scallops. They were well cooked and delicious. My partner however was disappointed with his Cullen Skink which was more like a broth than the creamy chowder we would expect. My son had pate which he said was... More

We had dinner in Coast recently. There is a skilled chef at work in the kitchen, The seafood was exemplary and you really need to order the langoustines. They were vastly better than at the Cafe Royal in Edinburgh. Main dishes were beautifully cooked and well presented. Service is charming, friendly, and competent. The room is a converted bank with...
