There was always a queue at this seafood hut during our time in Oban , but the plus side was fresh cooked mussels whilst you waited The sandwiches (we had crab and prawns) were generous , fresh and good value. Definitely worth picking up before...a boat trip We took away a seafood platter which had a whole lobster, 2 crab claws, freshwater prawns , scallops and mussels and was deliciousMore

Wonderfully fresh seafood in a totally unpretentious setting. You queue up at the green hut for your ultra-fresh fish - we love the crab rolls. One day we'll try the amazing looking seafood platter.

I went once and will not be back. To start we ordered half lobster, the lady who worked told us to order a whole one, they didn't have half ... so we decided to order the platter for two. the fish didn't look good, the...mussels were dirty, and the prawns were black. we had to throw everything away. Check the food twice before eating itMore

Really great seafood hut right on the pier next to the ferry port. All sorts on the blackboard menu and very fresh. We had a grand platter including a full lobster, langustine, mussels amongst others. Busy but the queue moves quick and space to sit...down whilst enjoying. Even had a few mussels as a taster whilst in the queue. Takes card for payment over £20.More

Best food place I went to in Oban. Fish was absolutely delicious and fresh, that explains why it's so busy. We had the £19.95 sharing platter

Detoured especially to try this place and were very disappointed. Maybe we hit a bad day but the staff were so grumpy and we had a 35min wait for a mediocre and overpriced platter for 2. Most of it was mussels and the 1 crab...claw was overcooked and the prawns were pappy. Better value to go for their tubs or oysters. Just don't believe the pictures.More

Fantastic oysters, fantastic mussels. Everything individually available is great. We also had a sea food platter take away but I wouldn't bother as you get given fantastic food and things like cooked salmon and lobster are not at their best when chilled.

We really enjoyed this treat in the harbour, despite the pouring rain.. Such a lovely mix in the platter. The smoked salmon was the best I've had in a long time. Staff friendly and chatty.

Will be back tomorrow to sample the sea food platter which looked incredible! Staff friendly, crab sandwiches brimming...with crab, rustic, charming only thing missing is a glass of cold white wine.

Think they have a basic wine list? Not entirely sure, sorry. If they don’t, it’s a ramshackle enough place for you to bring your own bottle and pour it into a paper cup. Recommended hang-out.
