This is one of my essentials in Oban, just before I get on the ferry to the islands. Fat, bulging sandwiches, filled with delicious seafood and washed down by a cup of tea - what more could you want to help you on your way?

This fresh seafood place was so good we went three times to eat! The platter for two at £14 seems expensive until you get it with lobster, scallops, langustine etc etc and spend half an hour ploughing through it! Everything is fresh prepared and you can watch them doing it all. Go, or miss a real treat!!

Is may not be a restaurant but you wil get the freshest, tastiest seafood imaginable.the scallops are a dream - never had better in any restaurant, in fact not nearly as good. The smoked salmon is out of this world and the seafood platter is devine, the mussels are delicious too - probably the best seafood anywhere in the world.... More

Yes, believe the hyperbolic reviews on this one. Not fancy but the food ... wow! Everything cooked to order but only a five minute wait. The scallops are the best I've tasted - and I've tried plenty scallops. They are giant, served with coral. With garlic and salad and brown bread. Great atmosphere, everyone eats round a couple of tables... More

If you are passing by Oban you can't miss this gourmand hut. You can have delicious crab / shrimp sandwich or mussel / fish soup. It's easy to find along the pier and not so expensive. Personally, the best sandwich you can have in Scotland!

Awesome range of freshly prepared , before your very eyes, platters, sandwiches, freshest seafood to go you'll ever get. Simply amazing. Scallops in butter were a dream and extraordinarily good value. We keep coming back. Irresistible.
