Spent two nights in Oban on a Rick Steve's tour. Coast restaurant was one of the recommended restaurants. Went as a walk-in and would have been turned away but for the amazingly helpful Nicola and her charming staff. A fellow Rick Steve's traveler was already seated and asked if we could be seated with her at a small table. They... More

I was there for a meal and found the food was cooked to perfection and very tasty. I would go back there again. It was a bit more expensive than other restaurants

We went to this restaurant on a Friday evening and had booked for an early table. A warm welcome and a choice of tables as it was quieter apparently being at the tail end of the holiday season. The service was efficient, friendly and unobtrusive and the food was very good. The scallops were as close to perfect as you... More

Lovely little restaurant in the centre of Oban. Very popular with local people and one of the best restaurants we had the pleasure of visiting during a 3 day stay in Argyllshire. Varied menu, all well priced. Great choice of fish dishes. The staff were charming and went out of their way to ensure guests had the best of service.... More

Every dish we enjoyed that evening -- our first and perhaps best “Cullen Skink,” i.e., leek and potato soup with shredded pieces of “Arbroath” smoked haddock; the seared scallops; the char-grilled langoustines; the smoked whisky salmon; and the rump of Argyll lamb -- except for the dessert, was truly wonderful. Mind you, the dessert certainly was good, however we found... More

"Coast" is an absolute gem...from the friendly welcome, professional and warm servers to the extremely varied menu, wonderful wine list and exquisite food we couldn't have asked for more! A wonderful experience all around...

Booked in advance to go on 8th October and glad we did as the food was super, my Cullen skink to start with was best I've tasted and my main dish of halibut with a risotto was excellent, unfortunately stuffed after that so could not manage a sweet .
