A nice place, with a terrasse in front on the sea front. The fish&chips was nice but not fabulous as there was a bit too much breadcrumbs. The service was a bit long. An interesting price for the quality. The fish was very fresh.

I would describe myself as a connoisseur of fish and chips, but these were simply some of the best I have had anywhere. The batter was perfect - crispy but light - and they tasted just like fish and chips should taste. I ate them slowly to make them last! My only complaint is that I should have ordered the... More

Having read a number of postings regarding Gluten Free Fish & Chips, we made a round trip of more than 70 miles, as a special treat for my wife who is a Coeliac and hasn't had fish with batter on for more than 30 years when I asked about the Gluten Free option the guy behind the counter said that...

We went for something to eat after deciding to have a day out in Oban. Well what a mistake that was. There was only one table in when we arrived and they still had their order to be taken, we should have decided then to leave. Finally after forty minutes from ordering our meal arrived, by this time I had... More

Looking for a decent fish & chip parlour then look no further than here. Welcoming staff a good selection on the menu including good old haggis, and a decent vegetarian option on the burgers. Value for money, not licensed but hot & cold drinks available. Comfortable surroundings including al fresco dining for the brave.

Although we both love fish this is not the type of "fish restaurant" we would normally visit but for a traditional fish tea it was lovely. We had the fish tea which included tea, bread and butter. Price was reasonable and certainly plenty to eat. Service was fast and friendly and what a view you have, if you are close... More

Had lemon sole supper, portion on the small side, batter slightly undercooked. Coming from an area that has superb fresh fish, it was always going to be hard to please us, and am afraid to say yes,we were a little bit disappointed. However on the positive side all staff were very friendly and efficient, and one of the best views... More
