We visited this restaurant on Saturday night, having opted for the 20.30 sitting. We were warmly welcomed and settled. The menu was exactly to our taste. We chose scallops in lime, coriander and chilli, and mussels in cream, white wine and pancetta. They did not disappoint! For mains, we elected a surf and turf, with scallops instead of lobster, and... More

The seafood temple is just on the outskirts of Oban but is worth the short trip from the ferry terminal, it is small only seven tables decorated in a simplistic style overlooking the bay. It was dark when we visited but on a summers evening the view will be stunning. Although not particularly busy on our visit in late November... More

Booked into the Seafood Temple and had the most amazing seafood. Shared a starter of mussels and then halibut with lobster. Couldn't manage desert as portions are very generous. A real find and long may it thrive!

This was by far the best seafood restaurant we have ever visited. It is a small but perfectly formed venue. So booking is recommended to avoid disappointment. We were warmly greeted on arrival and shown to our table. My wife opted for the scallops for starter and I chose mussels. My wife is still enthusing about them, two weeks later.... More

Wonderful fresh meal with phenomenal service! Presentation was beautiful, taste combinations were amazing and nice touch with the owner/chef coming to each table to ensure you are having a great experience. Small, intimate venue so be sure to book a table in advance. Certainly will go back anytime we visit Oban. Thank you :-)

professional reservation, personalised service, This is a really special family run restaurant. Great service, great food. We had the mussels as a starter to share - it was a big portion - delicious with a hint of chilly. I had the half lobster and my partner had the sole - both very taste full and fresh. Do not leave without... More
