We visited 3 'quality' fish restaurants in Oban, with 2 being excellent and one was mediocre but at expensive prices. the fish soup was watery, not creamy as it should have been. The fish and chips were no better than served in an average pub and the Gurnard was dry, possibly over cooked. The wine was good but that was all.

Not recommended

Our B&B hosts recommended us this place and were quite pleased with it. They had a set 2/3 course dinner for a reasonable price. It was very busy, being our table the last available one for the rest of the evening.
We had risotto and pate as starters. They were both very nice, although we could have done with a bit more risotto and a couple more toasts to finish up the pate.
As mains we tried the salmon and the blade of beef, both really nice.
We also had triple cooked chips, which could have been crispier.
Pleasant meal overall, and a place that locals should be able to recommend. Make sure that you book in advance and get there early. Last tables were given at 8pm!

My wife and I decided to dine at Coast as we heard great things from guests who were staying at the same B and B as us. The meal was delicious and had a good varied menu. I had the mussels and the blade of beef and my wife had risotto and gurnard ( type of fish ). I could not fault my experience at Coast, great food, warm welcoming staff and a brilliant wine list.

We had one night in Oban on a recent trip to Scotland with my cousin and her husband. We had heard that the seafood in Oban was amazing and we definitely found that to be true at Coast. We were all very impressed with the delicious food. We also loved the decor and ambience, as well as the friendly, spot on service.

We dined one evening in this restaurant and were very satisfied.

The service was excellent in a tastefully decorated atmosphere.

We had scallops for starters, followed by a sole and a sirloin steak (cooked perfectly as ordered), accompanied by several glasses of wine.

For a reasonable quality/price relationship, this restaurant, in the center of town, is definitely recommended.
