We were there earlier in year. It was great. We were further up north and on way home detoured to visit this place again. The food is brilliant and well priced. Oysters, lobster, scallops, mussels all so tasty and fresh. The staff are great, friendly, chatty and even handed me a huge lobster to hold and get a photo of.... More

Been there yesterday, part of a West Highlands tour. I must say this is the freshest fish I've ever eaten in Scotland. Took Mussels, Langoustines, Scallops, Salmon and Prawns sandwich. Portions are huge and for all we took we paid 23£.......!!!!!!! Do not expect a restaurant, as they only have a table which you share with all the other customers,... More

It doesn’t look much, just a hut on the Calmac Pier with a couple of picnic tables outside, but it serves the best and cheapest seafood in town. A typical example of its excellent offerings are the prawn sandwiches which are stuffed full of ice fresh prawns in a delicious sauce for £2.95. A nice touch is having one of... More

Fabulously fresh sea food. We pretty much tried everything. And everything was fantastic. The mussels were great and the oysters the best we have ever had. We did not quite like the lobster as we found it dry. But overall the experience was par excellence. The location and the set up were perfect.

Wonderful fresh seafood, great as a takeaway, as seating is limited to one outside table, otherwise take it away or use the sea wall or the odd bench outside the ferry terminal. Sandwiches are filled to bursting point in lovely fresh bread. There are also dressed crabs, lobsters, langoustines, scallops and fantastic value seafood platters, and much more. An experience...

We feasted on a platter for two - mussels, smoked salmon, langoustines, shrimp, etc. - wow. Best seafood while in Scotland. It was definitely a no-frills experience eating at the bench on the pier, and that was perfectly fine with us - the food was incredibly fresh and the price was excellent. I was only sorry we didn't have the... More

Staying about 20 minutes out of Oban we bought some seafood from the Seafood Hut to take away: Grand Platter which included half lobster, langoustines, mussels, salmon, oyster and more, ( scallops which we ate there as they were hot - and super delicious)...plus some portions of other tasty looking things. All really delicious. Six of us ate wonderfully for... More
