Great food

I had lunch in this restaurant last week. I decided to have two courses for I think £14.99. I started with Cullen Skink [a Scottish fish soup] and this would have been enough for lunch for me. I had decided to have mussels as a main dish and when the waitress came to clear the dishes she heard... read more

We are staying in Oban the last weekend in March 2015. We are staying in one of the large hotels down at the front where the food is not of great quality. We wanted to eat somewhere close by and chose 'coast'. We had the salmon fishcakes and mussels to start then fish and chips and blade of beef. They... More

nice evening had a Coast, dinner was excellent, the home made burgers are mouth watering, REAL meat unlike some of the rubbish 'others' sell as burgers! The menu is somewhat limited but I'm a plain eater and managed easily to find something to tempt. It was a little quiet as the tourist season hadn't quite began so service was attentive... More

My husband and I often dine at Coast in Oban and every time we go the experience is one of excellent choice... Excellent service... Detail to individual customers needs.... Seafood is the best I have ever tasted in Scotland.. Well done Coast.

My friend and I had the most delicious lunch at Coast. Oban, rightly, has a reputation for being the seafood capital of the West Coast of Scotland, and Coast restaurant contributes to this reputation excellently. Smart and comfortable, with subdued, restful decor and starched napkins, Coast contrasts with the more flamboyant alternatives in Oban and is quieter, more elegant, and... More

What a lovely welcome we received from the owner when we visited Coast the other night. Our meal was delicious and the atmosphere in the restaurant made the whole experience really enjoyable. We would definitely recommend Coast!

Visited here for our anniversary dinner along with my mum and dad. We all agreed that the food was some of the best we had ever eaten, and was a bargain. The blade of beef was so tender and just fell off your fork. Anyone looking for absolutely stunning, bargain priced, food should visit here for dinner.

Recommended by the fishmongers on the pier. Super food and friendly service. Sat by the window, watching the world go by.

This smashing wee restaurant is great for everyone. While I was in Oban on business and staying in a local hotel I dined here every night. There were couples, families and lone diners like myself. The friendly atmosphere makes for no awkward sitting in a corner reading a book scenarios. The staff are always friendly and chatty, the food is... More
