The Best

We always go here when visiting Oban. The fish is always freshly caught, smoked and cooked. I usually opt for the fresh mussels cooked in front of you, they are delicious. well worth a visit.

We had a crab sandwich and the langoustines - both clearly fresh with not too much fussing about, with the seafood the clear star!

Had a seafood platter for two and a portion of scallops with garlic butter. There is no doubt that for the money this is excellent. The seafood is fresh and tasty.

Whilst staying at Loch Awe, a couple from the hotel had told us about this seafood hut in Oban, and as we both love prawns etc we thought we would give it a go.
