Very fresh fish

Couldn't sit in, as had dog with me. Got fish and chips to take out. Looked like plenty of seats inside, and seats outside too. Great views of the bay if you were sitting in. Got mine and sat on the bench across the road and watched the ships while I ate. Cost was £6, average price I guess... read more

Came here with a group of seven with kids for dinner. Food was decent and servers were friendly. They offer sit-in and take away and include burgers and pizza along with the usual chip shop fare. Not a bad little place and there is a parking lot in the block behind (follow the signs).

Very friendly staff, delicious food. Lovely pot of tea. We tried the haggis and fish. Both with chips, followed by the amazing deep fried mars bar with ice cream - sooooo good! Great value for money. Friendly waitress service. Very efficient too :)

Twas okay. The scallops were tasty but the scampi was minced which was a turnoff. The atmosphere was a bit low for Oban but the waterfront view was nice.

A nice fish and chip supper with bread, butter and tea. Lovely to look over the harbour. Nice staff who were attentive.

We have eaten lots here over the years - sadly this was the worst visit. We were met by a girl lacking in friendliness and manners and we were put at a table right by the door. The filth and food remains all around this table (on floor) was awful. We had to point it out and she said she... More

Scampi well cooked and tasty. Chips let the meal down a little, and not up to the standard of the Scampi. Service good, and cooked to order.

everything was good - Isle of seil mussels, burger and pizza for kids and a really good value fish supper deal. Staff were attentive and decor is a pleasing blend of tartan and nautical. Good food and good value with a view over the bay - just what we wanted.

Stopped off for a couple of portions of chips and a haggis, having left and walked back to our car looking forward to some well cooked chips, we ended up with funny coloured bad tasting chips that had probably been cooked in old oil. One chip and they were thrown along with the haggis which had been refried ( if... More

A warm, friendly greeting. Fish was nice enough and just the right size. Great window table and views of the bay.
