The Right Ingredients For A Good Night

A group of us attended a wedding on Saturday (20th June), having travelled up from Suffolk. We decided to have a “farewell meal” on the Sunday evening, as most were heading home on the Monday. Our group included the parents of the groom, so all of us were of that age group. I made a late booking... read more

Have not a lot to say regarding this experience but was underwhelmed during a recent visit, the portion of sea bass was nonsense for a main course and really that's it. Don't know how this could be a mail meal in the evening when most of us are hungry by this time!!!

A disappointing score of 1 based on a recent visit? Recent must have been at least 3 years ago as we haven’t had Sea Bass on any of our menus since then. Unless this reviewer/foodie was mistaken in what fish they had eaten, or mixed us up with another restaurant. With regards to size as the saying goes ‘Size doesn’t... More

Standing on the roadside reading an advertisement isn't usually the way that I end up choosing to eat at a particular restaurant. But on this occasion - it was a local resident who said in passing "It's very good, you should try it!". And indeed the menu did look very good. So, later that day we booked to eat there,... More

Our wedding was close to Oban and we decided to have dinner with our guests at Coast two days before the wedding. The food was impeccable - quality of the ingredients, the taste and presentation could not have been better! My husband and I are foodies - we love to eat and have eaten at many good restaurants throughout our... More

It's a couple of years since we last visited - and they even remembered us.! Still one of the best places to eat in Oban and the set menu is amazing value - either meat or fish. Service is always good and it's always busy - best to book.

We passed this Resturant the evening and returned to confirm the food based on an outside view and were not disappointed. We hah the salmon as a main course and wonderful mussels in a wine and cream garlic sauce. The portions perfect and the service excellent. Dessert was ok and was an unnecessary addition.

We went to Coast on the recommendation of the owner of the guest house we stayed at. I had salmon which the menu said they had cured. Wow, really really nice. Hard to explain how good it was. The Mrs had the Pate, didnt look alot when it came out but was very filling. Again very nice. The mains were... More
