Perfect

We had the mussels, scallops and a plate of the prawn tails. So affordable for how much was given and it was delicious! You can't just visit once. No frills, no fancy plating, no wait staff... just simply delicious and fresh seafood. Can't beat it!

I was in oban for five days with family and during our stay I was at the seafood hut 3 times, it was so good and being from Perth on the east coast of Scotland I can say the freshness was ten times better and price very reasonable!I had the seafood platter which had a whole lobster along with massive...

This seafood shack is perhaps one of the best seafood meals I have eaten. All the food is so fresh, the taste is exquisite. Very reasonable prices, quick service and tasty dishes. Mussels freshly cooked, sandwiches made to order, seafood platters and hot smoked salmon. You can sit on the harbour wall or at the sharing table, the atmosphere is... More

Great food just be prepared to go with it. If you are in the mood for linen napkins and cutlery then choose somewhere else... But of you want real food served with passion and fun then this is for you. Pop around to the off licence before 😊

Stopped to have some lunch prior to getting on the ferry to mull. Right next to the terminal, it's a busy shack but my oh my what amazingly fresh fish and sea food. Would recommend the half peeled langostine in garlic so very nice with the chilli dip. Such a wholesome and frills free meal, was memorable and good value.

It may be a shack but they know how to serve great seafood. We had hot smoked salmon, crab, oysters, mussels and scallops and all were delicious. You can see by the queues people like their food. As with all good eateries they aren't afraid to give out samples to encourage custom!

It may look like a shack off the water, but don't be fooled. This place is quite possibly the best place to get food in Oban, and maybe even the best place to get seafood in Scotland. The fish is fresh, which is rather obvious since they're right on the harbor, but the way that they bundle and quickly cook... More

A Hut !! Literally!! So small it could be easily missed and that would be your loss. It is 10 paces from the fishing boats in Oban harbour - that is how fresh the produce is. Mussels to die for; oysters so huge and bursting with flavour; salmon that melts in your mouth; dressed crabs and lobsters and mixed platters... More
