Seafood temple temp closed.

Does anybody know what's going on at the seafood temple as their answer phone states they are temporarily closed. We're up for the weekend and hoped to visit.

Cheers,

I've also tried this week and no reply and no information on their web site. Maybe not so good at customer relations! We've booked alternative restaurants.

The rumours are that the owner, the venerable Seafood Templar, having reached the turnover limit of his current VAT status for this restaurant, has decided just to close it until the beginning of the next financial year, ie until April 2011. He has plenty other interests. Why should he knock his pan out for the taxman? Cool dude!

We had a booking for the Saturday night, out 1st wedding aniversary. The booking was made around 6 weeks in advance, nobody from the restaurant bothered to ring and tell me in person. Not a good way to treat returning customers, infact quite disgraceful manners.

Thanks for the reply.

I agree that customer relations have been utterly hopeless here. But the owner is a special and colourful individualist who does almost everything differently and in his own way. One thing he's really great at is catching and selling fantastic seafood from his shack on the Oban pier (still!). Fortunately too, Oban has several other top-class seafood restaurants which are very user-friendly and courteous. So please don't let this experience put you off!
