Heard so much about this place and it exceeded all expectations. The quality of seafood was amazing and so affordable. We had the seafood platter for two for £14 and if I had that in Edinburgh would have required a mortgage.

Lovely people and excellent food. You must visit the seafood hut if you are in Oban!! We visited twice in 2 days, and we will go once more before we leave!

This place is just awesome! Seafood is fresh, staff nice and friendly, and it's located on the shore. You can grab your food to take away or just sit in on the bench and munch away!

Great fresh sea food, simply cooked with a view of where it came from. Umbrellas often needed but it's all part of the experience. Take home a platter to have by an open fire with a glass of wine.

Stopped here for some fresh seafood, had salmon and it was awesome! This is outside so when it rains it is a bit hardcore to stand in the rain eating seafood

In Scotland for 2 weeks, we heard about this spot several days before being in Oban. We took some seafood already cooked to go home. Real Britton seafood lovers, and relatives with oyster farmers in Brittany, we were disappointed by the poor quality. Do not even pay attention on the way it is prepared. Nothing comparable with our nice French... More

Let's start with something practical -- don't trust Google to bring you to the green shack. We had just arrived in town, and didn't realize how easily you could get to the popular area of the pier, and made the mistake of using Google Maps to get walking directions. It brought us 20 minutes out of our way, along paths... More
