Excellent food

We really enjoyed our food and presentation. We will certainly return. We would recommend eating here. The Staff are very friendly also and keep you informed which makes a difference when eating out.

I had the oysters to start and they were lovely and fresh. I really enjoyed my chowder main course. My partner said his steak main course was very good, although not top notch, and was a very plentiful portion. My son, who is a chef, enjoyed the langoustine starter but was not so keen on the scallop main. The service... More

Great choice of food and breakfast was served to you, the 6 course tasting menu was varied and if you were on a DBB break and didn't like anything on this menu, you could choose something off the a la carte at half price. The eggs Benedict for breakfast were amazing

The six course taster menu is fantastic. You will be doing well to get to the end of this but it is worth trying. The breakfast is the best choice menu I have seen.

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

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
