“Best dinner in OBAN.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012 via mobile

The reviewer who said it was terrible must be unused to basic eateries. We had two roast dinners which were certainly not microwaved. The owner was modest but very sociable. The food was as good as any I've paid a lot more for on a Sunday lunch. Why pay more for posh decor? This is a great place and the limited number of dishes means what they do, they do well!

Over looked, more welcoming than the rest, light jazz, cafe. Very basic yet heart warming

“Basic cafe, serving great food, freshly made, cheap as chips!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2012

Could not fault the place, five of us stopped in for lunch with a 12 month old baby. The staff were friendly and helpful, the food was spot on and really good value. One of the best dining experiences we had in Oban. We found a lot of the pubs in the area were really over-priced, serving very average fare. This was such a refreshing change.

“good value if you are on a budget”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2012

A bit like a transport cafe but serves apple pie and custard, curries and home made food. Really good value and tasty. popular with backpackers. Not posh by any means but clean and tidy with nice staff.

“The best for desserts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2009

We were in Oban for one night and saw a sign pointing us to the Juicy Roast so we checked it out. We all were pleasantly stuffed with food, wine, and the desserts were... all I can remember, actually. We also went back the next day to get take-away sandwiches to have on the train.
