Walk In booking. Food: 10/10. Service 2/10. Great food, dreadful service. Shared with manager and told him I would be reviewing on Trip Advisor. Initial reaction from him was disbelief and asked where were sitting- I told him that should not make any difference. We visit Oban annually and always go to this restaurant- very disappointing.

Was so fortunate to arrive early and be given a table without a reservation. Enjoyed the early bird menu which was way more than I could eat but allowed me to try both an appetizer and entree. Beet and goat cheese salad was wonderful and the veggie lasagna was gooey good. Nice service with a lovely view over the harbor.

When the wine was the best thing about this meal (be it when it arrived after we had eaten our starter).Waiting staff were slow (maybe not enough),the food was disappointing.I would of assumed a Fish restaurant would know how to sear a tuna steak.
We waited at least 20 to 30 minutes for our requested bill to arrive,(which it didn't so thought it would be easier to stand by the till and wait)

The food is delicious! As a result, this place is BUSY! You would do well to reserve a table. There is an "Early Evening" menu available from 5:30 to 6:45 with quite reasonable prices. Service is good but not excellent primarily due to the fact that the place gets so busy. The wait staff has their hands full, but they are cheerful, courteous, and will do their best for you.
