Does what it says on the tin

It's fish and chips. Not much more you can say. Almost obligatory when you come to a seaside place like this. This Oban fish and chip does the job pretty well. The inside is on the nicer side of such restaurants. Food was timely, and there's a nice view to the sea from the window. There's also... read more

We visited here last night and were sadly disappointed. The non fish main courses were fine, but the two people who had fish at the table were disappointed. Lots of bones and the salmon was overlooked at one end and raw at the other. The atmosphere could have been quite relaxing, other than the waitresses son running up and down... More

Oban is the fish capital of Scotland and oooh boy it's beautiful. Went to this restaurant for lunch and the chips was good! The fish was another story. The fish itself was good but the stuff around (don't know the name) was too much and overcooked, tasted burned. So we skinned the already dead fish. Please see it as feedback... More

We are very happy to hear that you found Oban as beautiful as we do and that you did enjoy our chips and the fish too. The coating around the fish you are referring to is the 'batter' and if this was overcooked or not to your liking, I am very sorry about that. We Thank you for your feedback... More

We at the Oban Bay, can only apologise for your experience. We don't know what you had to eat and if you had made yourself known at the time it could have been resolved. It is very difficult for us to resolve an issue if we don't know what it is. I hope you return and sorry about this issue. More

We both had scrumptious fish and chips with a wee cup of tea. The small portion we asked for was more than enough for us. Sauces were also available foc so all and all we had a lovely meal.

Absolutely the very best place to eat fish n chips in Oban. Sit in the window and watch the world go by. Ordered a pensioners portion which was presented with bread and butter and a cup of tea.....Superb....the fish had just the right amount of batter and the chips were lovely. Service was fast and staff were very welcoming.
