For value for money and great food this little restaurant is second to none. We visited this time with family, the staff are very attentive. Nicola and the girls look after everyone and nothing is too much bother. Well done, a credit to the town!

This is a lovely restaurant and although not particularly large with only about fourteen tables, it has a homely atmosphere. We both had the light bite menu which offers two courses for £14.95, which is excellent value. The choice is perhaps slightly limited with about 6 starters and 6 main courses, but the food we had was excellent. The staff... More

We called in to Oban while on our way to Kennacraig on a wet April Saturday. We parked on the street and headed for the Harbour/Seafront restaurants but soon stumbled across Coast. Rather than get wet we ate there. The light lunch was excellent, 2 courses for £9 or so. Freshly baked bread with homemade soup to start, local mussels... More

We had a lovely meal there. It was fairly quiet when we went but there was nothing wrong with it. The decoration was nice and the meal itself was beautiful and reasonably priced.

Went here on the last night of our short break in Oban. The food and service were excellent. We chose from the a la carte menu with a bottle of wine. The price was very reasonable, for the quality of the food. I particularly liked that the courses were slightly different to the norm, not the usual combinations seen, and... More

I ate off the set menu, while my partner ate of the a la carte menu. The set menu had good choice including vegetarian options. My partner decided to choose a steak, he asked for it to be cooked medium rare, and it was cooked to perfection.Whilst the a la carte menu is lovely, the fixed price menu also provides... More

Coast is calm, friendly and very efficient. The staff are polite and helpful without being intrusive. The menu gives a good range of dishes that are well cooked and served. Its always great to have the opportunity to visit Coast and wish it was more often. Keep up the good work - Oban needs you!

I live in Oban and have tried all the local restaurants. Coast is the best for real cuisine. The location may not be as scenic as some but the chef is the real deal and the service is friendly and professional. Oban prides itself as being the seafood capital of Scotland but Coast is Oban's capital of real cooking and... More

This place is truly a find. We had never eaten there before but our daughter bought us a voucher for Christmas and we went along. We had the most delicious meal. The food is all freshly cooked to order and locally sourced. The chef makes his own pate which was the best I've ever had in a restaurant. The fillet... More

Have eaten here for a number of years and it has always been at a consistently good standard of both food and service. It's a relaxed atmosphere with the food priced for a 'bit of a treat' more than a spur of the moment drop in off the street I would say. Have no doubt I will return in the... More
