Dinner was 'OK' but disappointed that the mushy peas were cold. I mentioned this to the waitress but she was not very interested which was disappointing......I .heard great things about this establishment but wasn't really that impressed.

Good old fashioned fish and chip shop with an option to eat in. The half portion is great value and comes with a slice of bread too. Happy days.

On a recent holiday we went twice because the food was so good. First was take away and we had to wait a little while as it was freshly cooked. The second time we ate in and a sit in supper was only £6 for small fish and chips with peas and a drink. A good sized tea, not small... More

Description
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.
