Superb sea bass

Although we had not booked in advance we were lucky enough to get in for early evening. The food was excellent and service friendly.

Fresh seafood, reasonably priced, good service!!! I would recommend it to everyone I know. Buttered scallops are the highest point of the meal and you can get a plate for £6.50. Half a lobster will cost you £8.50. A must-go if you're in Oban.

I loved this place. I've eaten a plateful of freshly caught scallops, cooked just right in garlic and herb butter, for just £6.95. It was amazing!!! I wish Oban was closer to London :-)

This was one of the reasons we came to visit oban after seeing photos of a friend who recently ate here. This was far better than ordering greasy burgers from a stall. If you're a foodie and don't care about getting your hands dirty then this is the place. Fresh seafood caught and served on the same day at very... More

I love these sort of places where you can ( amongst all sorts of other seafood options) get a lobster for £10 and eat it outside. This is fresh seafood with no frills and all the better for that. Much harder to find than 5 star up market dining and to be cherished. As an aside the fish shop behind... More

I'm not a big seafood lover, but encouraged by enthusiastic reviews of the spot I decided to step in ... or rather stand to the counter, as it's really a hut with couple of desks outside. Honestly, it's a real great deal. Oban is named the seafood capital of Scotland and the quality of the goods in the hut is... More

We sought this place out from the recommendations and weren't disappointed! The seafood platter was plentiful and various, the smoked salmon lovely. It was worth sitting outside to savour this flavour! Some reviewers are not aware that there are hot and cold methods of smoking! Value for money was excellent!
