Stopped here for two fish suppers to take down to the pier to watch the sunset. Fish was cooked fresh to order and what a difference. Chips were crispy and hot, hearty and portions and only 13 quid altogether. Would def recommend!

On a chilly, rainy day, Oban Fish and Chip Shop is just the ticket. Quick service and good food located across the street from the harbor.

Excellent quality fish and chips, and very good value, served by friendly cheerful staff. Best place in Oban if you're looking for fish and chips, though a varied menu is offered.
