Not the easiest place to find but glad we did. Menu has a large range of fish dishes on offer but we stuck to the basics and were it disappointed. One of the best fish suppers we have had, even the chips were amazing. Sat on the sea-front to eat them. Bliss

We were part of a coach tour and this place was recommended by the guide. Fish and chips were excellent but the meat pie was mediocre at best (meat was fatty and gravy was runny). Prices were high compared to Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Positive - good fish and chips, nice portion size. Fish tasted fresh and crispy batter. Slight negative - it was a busy period, which I am sure they are used to, but after being seated no one came for our order. We had to call someone over. When waitress brought back our drinks it was plonked on table. It was... More

We went in Oban fish and chips shop being sure they do gluten free batter as we read it on TripAdvisor. What we found was an awful treatment. The waiter said to us that they have never done gluten free batter and we won't find any place to eat GF fish and chips in Oban. Luckily we found many other... More

We visited the restaurant on a recent cold evening. Luckily there was a free table and despite a great selection of different fish and seafood (including curry), we stuck to tradition and ordered cod, chips and mushy peas. I am a but of a fish and chip snob - batter has to be super crispy, flaky chunks of cod and... More
