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

Having read the reviews we sought this venue out. The food was well presented and good value but the quality let it dwon. Chips were fine but the fish had not been boned leading to unpleasant side effects from stuck bone in throat. The peas which wer garden rather than the more usual mushy were hard and tasteless. Although we... More

You can't go to Oban and not have a fish supper! The first time we visited we got a take out fish supper but this time we sat inside and had the regular supper which came with tea and bread & butter (because you have to make a chip butty right!?). The fish was perfect. If there was a minor... More

Fish and chip supper was ok not great. My order was taken by an Eastern European young lady whom looked very disappointed that I had popped in just before last orders. She quickly took my order but didn't clarify my choice of drink or type of peas I had to call her back as she scurried off. The other two... More

A day out in Oban and we stopped here for lunch. Simple food done well with attentive service as we decided to sit on rather than takeaway. I'd definitely eat here again.

Visited after a 4 hour drive and pitching our tent. We were ushered to a table almost immediately. When our food arrived, which was quick, there were no complaints. The batter was light and crispy and the fish tasted fresh. Would definitely recommend to others. The only thing I would recommend, and this is the same for most fish &... More

You have to have fish and chips when you're near the water and this is a great place to get it. The portions were huge and the food delicious. We did have trouble paying our bill as all the wait staff disappeared just when we needed them, but that was solved. The décor is plain café just as a fish... More
