Really happy with our meal here. Brilliant tasty food and friendly service. Ideal location in the centre of Oban and much cheaper than elsewhere.

Can hardly be called seafood; fishcakes/seafood/.. from the supermarket freezer aisle. Good fish and chips and other food, but not actual seafood you’d expect in a place like Oban, even though it’s advertised as such.

Alright place. Good service but the fish tasted very bland. My only try with fish and chips so far so not sure if it was suppossed to taste "just" fish either. Could have done with more salt and peppar at least.

Visited this establishment with my family. We were served quickly and the food was lovely, my only gripe was that there’s a 50p charge for kids ice cream when it says included along with juice on the menu - however it didn’t spoil my visit...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.
