Well worth a visit. Fresh seafood expertly cooked and presented by this small family team. Reasonably priced and worth the walk just outside Oban centre. A no-brainier if you are moored at the sailing club moorings. Will continue to return whenever in Oban.

Had an excellent meal here at the end of May in this building that overlooks the waterfront and was once a public convenience. Don't let that put you off as the glass frontage means that the views and sunset were both great. As for the...More

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.
