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.

Went there recently for a birthday and anniversary lunch, we had been meaning to go for a while but had not got round to it. 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

In a town that has many good restaurants, this is consistently my favourite in Oban where they do excellent fish, shellfish and meat (in case you're fished out). I had beautiful chargrilled langoustines to start whilst hubby had hand-dived Isle of Mull scallops, followed by a really good lemon sole with pancetta and gnocchi for me and a lovely sirloin...

I was through in Oban with work to take a client on holiday who relies on a wheelchair. We saw good reviews for Coast so decided to try it. They brought out a ramp for the wheelchair and gave us a good table close to the disabled toilets. The service was excellent and they attended to all of our needs.... More

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
