We had our best meal of the week here - everything was excellent - very fresh and perfectly prepared. The restaurant is tiny, so make a reservation, but don't miss it!

Reservations are a must, as it seats max 25. All tables have sea view. Seafood only, delicious choices between oysters, mussels, lobsters, etc. Very friendly and fast service. A MUST IF YOU ARE IN OR NEAR OBAN.
