Came here after getting off the ferry at 8pm because we could sit inside to eat. The fish had a nice light batter on it and the chips were quite tasty too. Would go back if in the area.

Generous portions, friendly staff, great atmosphere. They also have the option of a brilliant gluten free batter for the fish at no extra charge, worth the visit for that alone!

Clean, tidy place. Great for kids. Was only £30 for 2 adults and 3 children and that included drinks and deserts for the children. Staff very friendly. Especially Anya (sorry it's spelt incorrectly). Will be back.

My friend and I had lunch here today. We both had the fish and chip meal which included mushy peas, bread & butter and tea/coffee. The fish was crispy with a very tasty batter. The staff were helpful and friendly.

This traditional fish and chipper overlooks the harbour and is always busy. It is unlicensed and thus has generally young waiting staff. The product is excellent with the fish so fresh and the chips perfectly done. Yes they do sell other types of food but...More

The DiCiacca family have been running successful restaurants in Oban for 3 generations. Onorio and Elvira first came to Oban from Picinisco, Italy in 1959 to open their first chip shop. The Family's dedication to their customers and delicious recipes with big Italian flavours, have kept the Locals and the Visitors to Oban full and happy for generations. Renato and son Antonio, continue this long line of culinary tradition with the Oban Fish Bar & Restaurant and Nories Fish & Chip shop, which is just a little further along on George Street in Oban. Being in The Seafood Capital of Scotland, The Oban Fish Bar & Restaurant offers a wide choice of Fish and Seafood to tantalise your taste buds, but for the non fish eaters amongst you, enjoy the hand cut chips, try the delicious homemade Italian dishes or give the Gourmet Burgers from the local butcher a go. Maybe you're looking for authentic handmade Stone Baked Italian Pizza's? We've got that covered as well. Renato also likes to keep up with the latest developments which means we now also offer Gluten Free batter so everyone can enjoy the DiCiacca Family's delicious dishes.
