Review of Waterfront Restaurant, Oban

Waterfront Restaurant Oban

'From the pier to the pan….as fast as we can!' was the original motto of this fish restaurant on the first floor of a former seaman's mission overlooking Oban Bay. New owners have taken the clarion call on board, with the help of long-serving chef Alex Needham (who also manages the place).

Lunch and early-evening menus (5.30 – 6.45pm) offers a no-nonsense assortment of dishes including mussels with fries, fish pie and local sole in crispy batter. Things move up a gear in the evening, when the kitchen gets to work on pan-fried scallops with beetroot risotto, fillet of sea bass with shellfish minestrone or breadcrumbed cod fillet on Mediterranean vegetables; added to this is a chalkboard of daily specials reflecting what the owners' boats have landed. There are steaks for carnivores and a handful of desserts such as steamed chocolate pudding or crème brûlée to close the show.

A new seafood bar below stairs provides food throughout the day – everything from soup and salads to grills, pasta and homemade pies. Reasonably priced, fish-friendly wines round off the package.
