- and surprisingly good value! Only in Oban overnight to get the ferry to Uist, we consulted the list of restaurants in our hotel and Ee-Usk looked pretty pricey compared with some of the others. When others were fully booked, they had space for us and we were pleasantly surprised that the "specials" were considerably cheaper than some of the flagship dishes on the main menu. The freshest, most tender, melt-in-the-mouth fish we have had in years, excellent and friendly service, and a stunning view over the bay. Who could ask for anything more?

All fish and seafood dishes are very tasty and most of them are local production. This place was recommended to us by our hotel owner and it is obviously famous in the region. Do not miss the sensational views on sunset on the bay if you come for diner !

Visiting Oban, our party of 4 were directed to this restaurant down on the quayside. Oban landed fish has to travel about 10 metres to get from quay to kitchen and thats one of the things that makes this restaurant special. The freshest produce, hard working and knowledgeable staff, a good wine list along with a fair dram or two (single malt whiskeys) and a smart comfortable and not pricey restaurant and menu. Cant get any better. Suffice to stay that spending 4 nights in Oban we spent 4 evenings at Ee-usk.
We cant give a better recommendation than that !!

After reading the reviews and given a recommendation, we were really looking forward to our meal. The restaurant was busy but we were quickly shown a table. There was plenty of choice and an excellent wine list. The food was lovely,we ordered baked cammebert starter. And the fish was fresh and tasty but it all came so quickly. The starter appeared quickly and the minute we finished it, it was whisked away, the same with the bread, but then our main appeared! We had hardly drank 1 glass of wine and we were finished. All to super efficient service...
Sadly like the other review we felt rushed and it felt more like get them in get them out. I didn't even order a desert as the meal felt rushed and sadly not very enjoyable.
Possibly try out of season or turn up early..

My daughter and I were visiting from the States late June 2014 and were lucky enough to decide to dine at Ee Usk. It was without a doubt one of the most memorable dinners we have ever had. Unquestionably the best seafood by far - ever! We enjoyed the pan seared scallops - tender, sweet, and so fresh! There is no way to describe how wonderful this dish tasted - perfect with Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc (New Zealand). Highly recommend dining here - if you are in the area it is a "don't miss"! Can't wait to return!
