“Excellent restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

We regularly visit this restaurant. It is the best food and value for money in the town. Great helpings, great choice of wines, and the friendliest, happiest and most helpful waitresses ever. I would highly recommend coast, but you will need to book high season, as it's always very busy. The atmosphere is always very pleasant and relaxing and nothing is ever too much trouble.

“Very nice but not exceptional”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

Visited in April. Menu offers a nice choice with game, shellfish and fish being the staple. Surroundings pleasant but nothing you couldn't get in any other town. Bread was lovely and I had Pate which was good. Langoustines cooked well and very fresh, while hubby had wood pigeon all cooked well and tasty. Wines reasonable and the bill was not unreasonable all in. Staff very pleasant but sometimes a little hard to catch their eye if you needed anything but it was a Saturday night so they were busy. Puddings didn't appeal from the menu so didn't take one, hubby had cheese which was a little dissapointing. All in all its plesant enough, recommended for a nice wee meal out but its not extra special.

“Great value for money!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

Ate here on the recommendation of the B&B we were staying at just north of Oban. Went for the set menu, and it is an absolute bargin! Plenty of food for the money, and tasty to boot.

“Great place for dinner in Oban”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

Good restaurants in Oban are few and far between. This is one of the best, with great service and great local food. It's also right in the centre of town.
