The food was excellent, a family run restaurant (Rasa and Kevin) serving quality first class meal.The crab souffle , scallops with pork were divine. Both owners and the staff are attentive and friendly.I would highly recommend this Restaurant.

...so it's fortunate that it's so good! Our host at Barcaldine recommended the Hawthorn to avoid driving into Oban and we really enjoyed this restaurant. From the local food to the Oban ales, everything was really delicious. The service was excellent too.

It was pretty quiet when we went in but they made us feel very welcome. Food was very good and they were prepared to adapt it for fussy teenagers ! Definitely worth seeking out, don't get put off by small building, roomy inside and nicely done interior.

This restaurant is slightly off the beaten track, but still only a short drive from Oban, but it is well worth the journey. The ambiance is relaxing, and the food is delicious. Nothing too fancy, but very tasty, with good helpings. The staff are friendly and efficient, and we had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Heartily recommended.

This is a cosy smallish restaurant. The menu is fairly small but the food was very nice and the staff friendly.

The food and service excellent, we had soup, scallops and belly pork, chicken breast with leeks and cream sauce, and gnocchi, all very tasty and presented. Four starters, four mains, bottle of wine and 3 beers all for £113, we can recommend this lovely little restaurant and look forward to visiting again. Atmosphere and ambiance perfect.
