Hugely popular. Great fresh seafood at amazingly good prices. Set on the pier the green hut is easy to find with its flags flying in the breeze and the crowd that gathers around.

As you would expect from the name of the restaurant, it is not about the comfort and ambience. What it is known for is fresh, delectable and reasonably priced seafood. The scallops and crab sandwich in particular were exceptional.

I eat a lot of fish and so fed up paying for overpriced tiddly lame stuff that most places knock out. This place was like a piece of heaven sent down to Oban for me to find. I smashed a platter and went back for some extra scallops. Fresh as you like, sweet scallops, juicy shrimps, mussels that melted in... More

Visited Oban on the way to the Highlands and we had lunch at the hut. You can see the fishermen bringing everything in fresh. The pleasant smell of white wine is all around the area surrounding the hut as they are cooking the mussels in it. I strongly recommend dropping by if you love fish & sea food. You will... More

The best crab sandwich I have ever tasted!!..Fresh seafood at an unbeatable price. My husband and I spent a weekend in Oban in October, I had previously spent a few days in Oban in April and enjoyed seafood platters from the seafood hut with French friends, but we were always too late in the day to enjoy their crab sandwich....

This little hut on the pier is amazing, seafood fresh from their boat, served by friendly staff......always arrives in Oban for the ferries with time to call here for lunch. They have prepared lobster for us to take over to Mull & we always take a cool bag so we can bring some lovely fresh seafood home! Don't miss it!

Seafood presented at its best & with character! Stopped here with my boyfriend for some lunch, had a sharing platter which was plenty big enough to feed both of us & it had a good selection of seafood on it. Luckily for us it was a glorious day & we sat in the pier taking in the views with great... More
