Restaurant details
Reviewed 23 August 2013

Over the years we have enjoyed leisurely dinners at the Seafood Temple, EE-usk, The Waterfront, the Oyster Inn, all very nice restaurants with a good choice of seafood. But this lunchtime we were looking for a quick snack before heading off to The Argyllshire Gathering, and so we went to Macgilivrays, a trailer on the pier. I had scallops, pan-fried in hot garlic butter, my wife the Oban Games 'Tails Special"; king prawn and sweet lobster tails. Both cooked in front of us, both served within five minutes, and both delicious. We sat at our outdoor table in the sunshine with our polystyrene containers and plastic forks, watching the bustle of the ferry passengers and the boats in the harbour, looking across the bay to the Isle of Kererra. This is fast food, Oban-style!

Did absolutely Not enjoy the Food. Greasy, chewy scallops, sides are a disgusting Cole slaw, some Mini iceberg lettuce pieces are supposed to be the Salad. Not nice, Not cheap

I travel 340 miles to come to Oban and its is worth it purely for a £4 pot of Crayfish tails. So fresh and tasty, this is what seafood is all about. Without a doubt one to put on your bucket list. Absolutely bloody fantastic!
