“4/09 Nice Dining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2009

Oban was our fourth stop touring Scotland. We stayed in Oban for three nights and tried several of the better recommended restaurants. Ocean does not have the scenic views, but the food is good. My wife and I shared the langoustine with quinoa and blue cheese gonchi, and each had celery soup. The food was reasonably priced and good. Service was excellent. Larry & Kelly

“Excellent restaurant - comparable to the best of class anywhere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2009

This is a comfortable middle of the road restaurant. The service is excellent and the menu, while not extensive, is balanced and adequate. The presentation is imaginative and appetising while the servings are quite enough even for those of us with good appetites. Needless to say the food is of excellent qualityt and well cooked.

“Fine dining in a very nice atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2009

Coast never fails to disappoint me. It is fine dining restaurant with a special occasion feel to the place. Prices are very reasonable for what you are served. This is a restaurant perfect for many occasions where a more formal atmosphere is required. It would be hard not to open a bottle of wine with your meal here! Delicious food with charming service.

“good food, downbeat atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2009

Coast took over the premises vacated by Ee-Usk who moved down to North Pier. They should have enjoyed the benefit of that but although providing very good food at reasonable prices they killed the atmosphere which had previously been the main selling point of the previous tenants. More recent visits were to a busier Coast so they have won through with their good food, good menu and pricing, which they deserve.

“Good service lovely food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2009

My partner and I went to Coast on a Sunday 3rd of May for dinner. We managed to get a table without booking just before 9 (they stop taking customers at 9pm). Service was very good and food was excellent. Although it was slightly expensive when you add a bottle of wine in with your 3 courses (our totalled about £70) however the wine was good and the food very tasty and well presented so you don't mind paying a bit extra.

The restaurant lacked a bit of atmosphere but was very relaxing, the artwork on display was nice and background music was chilled.

Overall, a very nice restaurant and well worth a visit.
