my boyfriend and I had a wonderful lunch at the Oban inn! The service could not be faulted. the food was fresh, hot, plentiful, flavorful and exciting. the fish and chips with a bit of a twist were wonderful and my caramelized onion and cheddar quiche was to die for. such a fantastic setting and reasonable prices for the area!

“Must try!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

We were at the Oban for dinner the 3rd weekend of August. My 1st course was a peach soup using fresh, local peaches. It had a touch of salsa for both colour and taste contrast attractively placed in the centre of the bowl. It was the perfect opener for the rest of the meal. I had the shrimps and scallops - both perfectly cooked and lightly seasoned. Service was, as always, timely and discrete. If you're in the area, be sure to make your RSVP early.

“Elegant and delicious”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

We had chosen another restaurant as we wanted outdoor dining, but we ran out of time and ended up at the Oban Inn as that is where we were staying. Well, what a good decision that was! The food was fabulous, the wine devine, the service not only professional and perfect but friendly and helpful. And the view of the gardens through the panoramic windows was almost as good as being outdoors. Next time we will not only stay at the Inn, but be sure to have at least one dinner there as well.
