This was my third visit to this establishment and I haven't been disappointed yet. We had a mixed seafood platter for two and six oysters. Mussels, langoustines, smoked trout, crab, served with lemon and brown bread. The oysters were to die for! Only thing missing was the sunshine but despite the rain it was still great. I cannnot begin to... More

Wow! What an experience! This is a little green hut by the ferry terminal, not really a restaurant and is only open between about 10am and 6pm. There is usually a big queue, but it goes down very quickly and there are lots of people just standing by, watching the goings on and looking at the crabs and lobsters there... More

We kept returning to this establishment at lunch time during a recent stay in Oban. Fresh caught mussels cooked in wine when you order were absolutely delicious; couldn't fault the fat juicy dressed crab sandwich; individual seafood dish contained a myriad of tastes and the hot smoked salmon was truly amazing! No one should visit Oban without eating here.

The best place for all things fresh and seafood related! We bought a whole sea bass and trout for the BBQ. Apparently they'd been caught only the day before. Yum !

This was the prime pre-planned destination when we came to Oban: wonderful, visibly fresh seafood at most reasonable prices in a great place right in the harbor!

Had the mussels and the scallops both of which were well cooked and tasty. Only downside was that I was travelling alone and wasn't hungry enough to tackle the seafood platter for 2 which did look amazing. I will hopefully be back to try to tackle that!

Had a day out on motorbike and stopped at Oban for lunch. The Oban Seafood Hut was my destination. I saw the tartan seafood van at the end of the pier however I suspected that this was not the original hut. I walked round the corner and the buzz of people around the green hut was like bees around a... More
