A bit disappointed after a recent visit, our main courses were fine but both starters were tasteless (ravioli and hot smoked salmon), a bit better after plenty of salt and pepper but generally very disappointing. This is not a cheap restaurant so expected better. Sorry!

Wild mushroom ravioli for starters followed by venison and a rhubarb crumble to finish. Nothing to criticise in the cooking department, all hugely enjoyable. Service from the minute we phoned to book right up until w left was friendly and highly professional. Never had to wait for a waitress to ask for a wine refill and never got the feeling... More

We booked a dinner in this restaurant based on Tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. Everything surpassed expectations. The restaurant is busy, however you have the full attention of their staff. The food is excellent - and at a very reasonable price for the quality of the dishes. I will go there again if I have the chance to... More

We had starters of Cullen Skink and butternut squash risotto, then salmon for the main meals, all of which were delicious. The staff were very friendly, the restaurant itself is very modern and stylish, and overall a very enjoyable evening.

We spent some time trawling around Oban before settling on Coast. We hadn't booked and it was busy but we were found a table for two near the door. The staff were ultra efficient and understood my wife's food intolerances very well. Overall the food was excellent, the staff attentive, and the bill surprisingly low. .....and to cap it all...
