Food as reliabily great, as ever. The cheese selection was amazing & even called for a french red to compliment it.
A magical moment on a wet & windy winter night.No view or sunset but the seabirds lite up by the nautical navigation lights (bouys), fantastic. We had to have another drink & watch.
Definitely a must see

We visit Oban often and read the reviews for Ee-usk before visiting. All excited for our anniversary lunch, we stepped in and were warmly greeted by the waitress and shown to a fantastic table overlooking the port.

They had a lunch offer on which my husband took advantage of. 2 courses for £11.95. He opted for the half fish and chips and bread and butter pudding. I had the specials menu dressed crab then mussels and chips.

Now my other half isn't a huge seafood fan, but raved about the fish and chips. Beautiful sea bass in a light crispy batter. My dressed crab was undressed! Sauce was on the side and it had clearly been prepared some time earlier, plated and refrigerated. Small pieces of crab shell in with the meat. My main of mussels and chips was lovely, but I found the mussels to be very small.

The main problem was the pudding. It arrived looking all crispy and straight from the oven, but was soggy and tasted horrible. We mentioned this to the waitress when she noticed it hadn't been eaten and the manager came over to talk to us. Nice touch. She admitted it had been microwaved and didn't charge us for the dish. She offered coffee which my husband accepted. However on getting the bill, we were charged for the coffee. Perhaps we should have clarified if this was to be on the house or not, but we assumed.

The chablis was very nice, but pricey at £6 for 175ml.

We imagine this place will be absolutely buzzing during the summer months and perhaps we just caught them on an off day with it being January and snowing outside!

Will give it another try in July when we return with friends.

Ee Usk year in, year out, maintains it's own remarkable standards. The freshest of fish, served simply and with great charm. It is difficult to better it's scallops and turbot. Not cheap, but good value. Wine list more that adequate. A must if in Oban. .

We visit this restaurant every time we go up to stay at Oban, it is top quality food with wonderful views out onto the harbour , you can watch all the comings and goings as you enjoy the wonderful food and drink. Service excellent too without being obtrusive. Cant wait to go back again next time we visit Oban.

Went there for two evenings - had a great meal both times. Only deserts a little below the other standard.
