We popped in for early-bird dinner and were treated royally. One of us had the Cullen soup and salmon, the other vegetarian risotto, salmon cake, and meringue with berries and ice cream. The risotto was our least favorite; the salmon cake and dessert our most favorite. The staff was prompt and efficient, without making us feel rushed.

We were a group of six with varied tastes but Coast managed to meet the needs of us all. The management and staff were able to balance an outwardly casual atmosphere with relaxed but professional service. Beyond a friendly welcome, the young and enthusiastic staff made light work of delivering our meals at the same time to the right people... More

Most of the dishes had a slight modern twist on classic scottish food. It was subtle and not in your face so it was very enjoyable. Service was attentive and friendly. I also like that they propose a small bites... More

This is a modern, new/international style restaurant with nice decor and good service. The menu was interesting with fine fresh ingredients and some interesting flavors. It's not a fabulous place, but options in the very touristy Oban were limited and this was the best we found there.

We booked a table for six (3 couples) and had a very enjoyable dinner. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was very good and fresh. Full bar and wine selection was solid and reasonably priced. The only minor complaint is that the menu is not extensive with limited selection. That said, we were all able to... More

Food was excellent, beautiful fish. I asked for wine but she forgot! Couldn't flag anyone till half way through my meal. I traded mine for my husband because she put cream in dish although i had requested no cream. But. Food was good and the other wait staff were better. Try this restaurant and hope for better service!!

We booked (as advised) and it was full. Staff were very attentive and friendly. Menu was comprehensive with both seafood and meat offerings. We had the lamb and it was great. Would definitely recommend to all.
