Description: The DiCiacca family have been running successful restaurants in Oban for 3 generations. Onorio and Elvira first came to Oban from Picinisco, Italy in 1959 to open their first chip shop. The Family's dedication to their customers and delicious recipes with big Italian flavours, have kept the Locals and the Visitors to Oban full and happy for generations. Renato and son Antonio, continue this long line of culinary tradition with the Oban Fish Bar & Restaurant and Nories Fish & Chip shop, which is just a little further along on George Street in Oban. Being in The Seafood Capital of Scotland, The Oban Fish Bar & Restaurant offers a wide choice of Fish and Seafood to tantalise your taste buds, but for the non fish eaters amongst you, enjoy the hand cut chips, try the delicious homemade Italian dishes or give the Gourmet Burgers from the local butcher a go. Maybe you're looking for authentic handmade Stone Baked Italian Pizza's? We've got that covered as well. Renato also likes to keep up with the latest developments which means we now also offer Gluten Free batter so everyone can enjoy the DiCiacca Family's delicious dishes.

“Really Nice”
Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

Visited after a 4 hour drive and pitching our tent. We were ushered to a table almost immediately.
When our food arrived, which was quick, there were no complaints.
The batter was light and crispy and the fish tasted fresh. Would definitely recommend to others.
The only thing I would recommend, and this is the same for most fish & chip shops, the chips would be nicer if cooked longer and starting to caramelise instead of just golden.

“Disappointed at best”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

Slow service, scallops were good, scampi looked and tasted factory made, greasy fries, fair salad. Could not get a single waitress to return for anything else, received the bill for the wrong table, had to insist that two people did not eat three meals! Below average, would not recommend it.

“Fish and Chips as You Expect”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

You have to have fish and chips when you're near the water and this is a great place to get it. The portions were huge and the food delicious. We did have trouble paying our bill as all the wait staff disappeared just when we needed them, but that was solved. The décor is plain café just as a fish shop should be. Don't expect elegance; just expect great food.
