We only had the cod and chips and they were cooked perfectly. Would highly recommend grabbing some and taking to one of the great beaches

Excellent fish (blue cod) and chips, and other deep fried stuff. Tables and leaners to eat at, friendly service. A must do for one night in Oban.

The best fish and chips I've had in New Zealand! Blue cod is incredible! And I even had an excellent vegetarian basket one evening. (Heretic, I know, but I had to try it.)
