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!

Luckily for us it was a glorious day & we sat in the pier taking in the views with great... More

Queueing for a ferry I never have time enough to stop and enjoy the platters and freshly cooked dishes but can only grab a sandwich, sadly. Saying that, these are the best crab or prawn sandwiches in the World ! This the best place I have eaten in Oban and the food, location and atmosphere and unique, whatever the weather.... More

Whenever ferries and journey times allow we stop to pick up crab, prawn and salmon sandwiches to take with us. Well-filled and delicious. One day we really must try a platter!
