We dined at this restaurant on 3 consecutive evenings and on the first occasion we took the last table. After that we made sure to make a booking for the following 2 evenings. The food was excellent from a relatively small selection of dishes. The staff were great and one of the owners acted as head waitress. Nothing was too... More

At the time we debated whether this was the best in Oban. It almost was and arguably was. That makes no sense! For me the reason I thought it was second best was probably the ambience and atmosphere. But the main courses were absolutely delicious. The starters were fine and we enjoyed them. I have to say the mains were... More

We went for my birthday to try something new and were pleasantly surprised. Quality of food is excellent, the service is pleasant and the restaurant has a good atmosphere. As Oban is known as the seafood capital, here you get delicious fish dishes but also a great variety of meat and other dishes. This is definitely one of the top... More

Amazing salmon on greens appetizer, followed by a delectable gnocchi, and then followed up with a raspberry drambuie parfait. The service was exceptional. Make reservations and stop in at this wonderful little spot.

Had a lovely meal at Coast. Very nice decor and atmosphere. A very popular restaurant and waitresses very pleasant. The only quibble was that we had to wait a very long time to actually place our order, but worth the wait.

Excellent food and service. The local fish was amazing. For what we had it was very reasonablypriced too. It got very busy later in the evening and various groups had to be turned away. Take my advice and book. You won't be disappointed

I was advised to get there early(6ish) as it gets booked up. Had a discreet table as eating alone you don't need to stick out like a sore thumb. The red gurnard was cooked to perfection with the most interesting accompaniments including tiny herby forcemeat balls which were delicious. All beautifully presented and washed down with a glass of go... More

We went there early on a Saturday night and were astounded at the quality of food for the price. We each had two courses for 14.50 and the quality of produce and the taste were exceptional. Good range of beers and wine and friendly helpful staff. Highly recommended.

We had the special £14.50 meal deal which is either 2 starters and dessert, or a starter and a main or a main and dessert. We both chose the mussels in a creamy sauce which was really fresh and tasty with a huge amount of mussels. Then for main we chose the salmon with seasonal vegetables which was tasty and... More
