“Great food warm welcome outstanding service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014 via mobile

I visited Oban on many occasions and have sampled the food at most eatery locations, however on my last visit I was intrigued by the van on the pier and decided I should give it a try. Can't believe I had not tried this before I had the seafood platter it was astonishingly tasty , the owner Gordon was on hand to make me smile and laugh must admit the craic was better there than my local pub and he also pointed out loads of points of local interest which I was not aware of before. So drop by Mcgillivrays seafood no one will be disappointed service is great fantastic good magic location give It go

Oban is a lovely town in the summer and if you like seafood like I do I can heartily recommend this lovely open air restaurant.

“Smoked haddock supper - bang on.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

First day open after a livery dispute with another stall on the quay, experimenting with smoked haddock in a light breadcrumb coating, absolutely delicious and very cheery service. The new tartan van won favour with the locals too. A lovely flavourful lunch on a chilly day. Nice pot of shellfish to start too.
