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 a takeway option... 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.

Can't get fish and chips like this in the U.S! Had lunch and dinner there it was so delicious. Try the fish stew. Very generous portions at reasonable prices.

On a wee visit to Oban we stopped at this little gem for a fish tea. Staff were helpful and efficient, food was excellent, all capped off with a lovely pot of Scottish tea. We will be back!

Main drawback is that the fish was very greasy, and chips not as good as other chippies! A reasonable choice if you want to eat in, - there are others better, but if you want... More

This is a lovely restaurant, the service was great and so was the food, my only complaint was the peas were not mushy!!!!! So if you like mushy peas it's a bit of a let down, but the fish an chips were lovely,,,
