My 12 year old summarised this place by saying 'I've gone to heaven'! We ate here before catching a ferry to Mull. Everything about this place is great - the simplicity, the setting and the food. It has to be one of those places you would never forget and one you would talk about for years to come. It was a wet day, but somehow, that made the experience even more memorable. The mussels were very good. We then went for the garlic scallops, garlic prawns and crab - all of these were excellent. We would probably have carried on......if it wasn't for our ferry.

We had read a review in a weekend newspaper and being on a coach holiday with a trip to Oban thought we would give it a go. SO GLAD WE DID. The hut is on the pier by the railway station and is painted GREEN (Not the RED hut on the opposite side) it does not really have seating like a conventional restaurant just a long wooden bench outside with bench seats down one side, if full just start eating and grab a pew when someone gets up and goes (Turnover of customers is quick). Order from the counter and just eat where you can sitting on the pier wall seemed popular. The choice is amazing and my wife and I went for the Seafood Platter for 2 a cost of only £12.50 it contained just about every type of seafood you could want, Lobster, Big Crab Claws, Langoustine, Prawns in shell and peeled, Cockles, Salmon, smoked sea trout and more if really was fantastic on a bed of salad. After there is a small sink to wash your hands very useful.
Highly recommended just wish we lived a bit nearer to visit again although there was a girl travelling on her own who had come over from the Netherlands just to go back again for the Mussels in white wine sauce. Stay open until the last ferry from Mull dock about 6pm

We came across the hut by chance as I went to see the Mull ferry coming in.There were buckets of fresh crabs and the aroma of mussels being cooked in white wine drew me in.WOW!! There was so much fresh seafood and the samples of smoked salmon were just the best.We werr just going to get some prawn tails but then decided on the langoustines in garlic. £2.20 for 6 with a sweet chilli dip.bargain.They were delicious. The amount of people buying said it all.The next time we will definitely be having the seafood platter. You have to give it a go.

The seafood there was very fresh & valve for money. Although no proper seating, everyone there including us enjoyed eating seafood there very much. We had oyster, crab (must eat, they removed all shell), scallop, & mussels, very tasty. One of the best meals we had in this trip. Also, the staff were very vert friendly.

We had about five different kinds of seafood, all great. You can taste some before you buy, too. Mussels in white wine were our top-pick.
