Have the seafood platter - it was totally yummy. Much too much food for the two of us which the dog was pleased about. The scallops in garlic butter were to die for. We ate it as a picnic overlooking a loch - holiday highlight for all. Would go back to Oban just for this.

Lots to chose from at good prices. The platters are a must if you like a selection. All freshly caught. Freshly cooked. Looks wonderful. Tastes divine. Highly recommend if you like seafood.

What a find. About the size of a single garage, this place sells the most amazing sea food. Just a few metres from where the catch is landed. If you can manage it have the seafood platter. It is an outside eating area only but that enhances the experience.

As casual and fresh as can be, with outstanding quality seafood no doubt sourced earlier that very morning from the boats tied up a few yards away. Picnic style eating, platters of amazing oysters, simply but perfectly cooked mussels, langoustines, etc. Only the scallops were less than perfect. Unbeatable value and quality and, when in Oban, it’s a must.

We were travelling up the west coast of Scotland and had to call in at Oban to visit the distillery. We parked just next to the train station and whilst making our way to the distillery we passed the green Oban Seafood Hut. As it was around lunchtime we decided to grab some food. The choice of what was on... More

Been to Oban before and came back with the Seafood Hut in mind. It didn't disappoint. I had the scallops and hubby had the half lobster. It was raining but who cared, the food was delicious. Fine dining food in a polystyrene tray in the rain who would have thought but it worked!

As we were walking to the ferry terminal, it was hard to miss the delicious aroma of amazingly fresh mussels cooking outside. After being offered a taste, my husband & son placed an order of mussels & scallops. They could not stop raving about the fresh seafood. You cannot beat the value for this seafood. Be sure to stop here!
