Excellent food eaten at a stand up station unfortunately. I'm sure if they had tables too they would get even more trade. Mussels delicious!

Limited outside seating so best in reasonable weather. BYOB but they will provide a plastic cup. Sounds primitive but the seafood is to die for. You can't get it any fresher and you can taste the difference.

Outstandingly great shellfish...Crabs Claws...Oysters fresh beyond belief..Lobbie..Langoustine...Mussels...Queen Scallops in Garlic Butter...great wee army of staff fronted by Fiona and Anthony... great prices too. This is a must do whilst in Oban.

A wonderful little seafood hut right by the waterfront. Outdoor seating, but not enough! It was very busy. The seafood platter was awesome-- especially the smoked salmon and scallops! Fun memory for our visit from the United States :)

Wonderfully fresh local seafood, served simply on the quayside. We had the delicious Grand Seafood platter which included lobster, crab, languostines, prawns, squid, smoked salmon and mussels. Friendly, but efficient staff and no frills, no fuss presentation makes this a must visit if you're in Oban.

This is a great wee place, serving the best and freshest seafood. We enjoyed the best mussels we had ever had. The place was mobbed and everyone around us was enjoying the food (you could tell). The prices are very reasonable too. We will be back soon.

This little hidden hut on the pier is extraordinary .Sea food lovers will enjoy a whole feast eating lobster crab muscles shrips salmon etc etc . One can buy a dish for 2 person for just 14 or 27 sterling depends on what to choose. We enjoyed eating our plate on a rainy day .
