This is the Oban Bay Hotel restaurant where we had dinner on two of the nights of our 3 night break. The 6 course taster menu was lovely and adequate for older folk like us. Second night we had the main course from the ala carte menu and the portion size was huge. We paid the small supplementary charge. Only... More

Would stay in the hotel and... More

Friends were staying at the Oban Bay Hotel for a few nights and we joined them for dinner one evening. The hotel has a splendid view of the Bay, across to the isles of Kerrera and Mull, and this view can be enjoyed to the full from the conservatory where we had coffee. But unfortunately the dining room is towards... More

We had Sunday lunch yesterday and were well impressed. They are currently offering two courses for £9.95 or three courses £12.95.We had the choice of soup or pate, roast turkey or beef with vegetables, yorkshire puddings and thick onion gravy followed by sticky toffee pudding or icecream. The food was really nice and homemade but our only complaint is that... More
