Booked this restaurant on a recommendation from a friend and was also delighted to hear from our guest house owner that he thought we had chosen well. It was buzzing on a Tuesday evening. I started with whisky hot-smoked salmon served with horseradish puffs and my husband had langoustines. Both starters were delicious. My main course was pan-fried halibut on a kedgeree risotto, which was a delicate marriage of flavours so good that I didn't want it to end! We both had the same dessert, which was beautifully presented: a cardamom and white chocolate mousse set inside a fine dark chocolate wrap, with berries and a vanilla and blueberry ice cream. The service was excellent. The restaurant does not have a view, but to be honest, it really didn't matter because the food was so accomplished that I would not have been paying attention to a view anyway! There is an interesting and well-priced wine list. I would definitely return and would even go to Oban specially in order to do so.

Booked here on a recommendation by our guest house owner and was not disappointed, great atmosphere with friendly staff, the poached egg and black pudding cubes were delicious as was the slow cooked pork, great choice where you can pick from either of the lite or main menus. Would definitely return on future visits to Oban.

Fresh mussels in a cream sauce that were delicious! The vegetarian soup was just okay.
The salmon was pretty good, but the vegetables served with it were wonderful and fresh; peas, carrots, little potatoes and watercress. Several people next to us had the pork chop and the poached eggs on toast with lettuce appetizer.
This restaurant is upscale, yet affordable and casual. The service was good.

When we last came to Oban in 2003 this building was occupied by EE-USK,the legendary fish restaurant which has now moved to the North Pier. This place doesn't aim to compete but seems to have settled nicely into the surroundings of George St. It must be one of the best places to go if you're on a budget-you can have 2 starters and a dessert, or a starter and main, or a main and dessert, for £12.95, or starter,main AND dessert for £15.95-and when you see their menus (on website) you'll appreciate the value, just like we did! A really good bet-don't miss!

Saturday night and we hadnt booked anything. there were 4 of us and Coast found us a table at 8.50. The great staff phoned us when our table came available earlier than expected which was fantastic service, and much appreciated. Lovely food, very well presented, and good service.
A little more expensive than we had expected but that's probably due to having two bottles of lovely wine with our meals as we were enjoying ourselves so much. Would go back here again if I visit Oban.
