Couldn't tell you when I've had fresher seafood. My daughter watches the youtube show Munchies, who had a 5 part series on Scotland - 15-20 mins per episode. One of the places they highlighted was this place. We came for the scallops and a crab sammich ended up with so much more. The seafood platter was a heaping trencher of... More

Lots of customers and not enough tables. My wife loved this place and their 'Grand Seafood Platter' and this was the main reason she wanted to stay in Oban for 2 nights. She ate there from the morning we arrived till the day we left. Very popular for lovers of such cuisine at affordable prices.

Con : 1) No enough seating place. Can be very crowded at times. 2) Certain seafood can be overcook probably due to peak times. Will definitely... More

This is for seafood eaters! It is basically communal eating [seats are limited], get your food, find a seat/table, stand or sit, and tuck in. Lobsters, crabs etc can be freshly cooked. The service is friendly and efficient. Eat there or take away. Alas, you cannot have a glass of wine [or any alcohol] with your seafood being a public... More

This was a huge surprise and a very positive one. We bought a platter of mixed seafood and chose to eat it in our hotel room (just because the weather was a bit miserable and the hut only has outdoor seats). For merely £25 we got an incredible variety and quantity of seafood, all extremely fresh and tasty. A unique... More

Amazing oysters. Lots of cold plates available. Just had oysters and a little taster of their delicious smoked salmon. There's a large table outside for communal eating.

The seafood platter is simply delicious. The smoked salmon is sumptuous. Try the scallops in garlic butter and the mussels are lovely. Just try!
