I am local and have visited Coast before (and hope to again soon). It has a lovely cosy ambience and a varied menu which includes excellent vegetarian options. Great service from our waitress Sophie. Good portion sizes and delicious food. We didn't feel rushed either....Very much looking forward to a return visit.More

Coast was recommended to us on our first night in Oban but on a Saturday there was no way we could get near to the place. My wife asked if we could book for the evening of the following Monday, our last night there and...we were able to do so. It was very busy at the time we arrived, but we were shown to our table by Nicola, the co-proprietor,where she briefed us on the daily specials. The food was superb.More

We booked a table at Coast for our first night in Coast and we were delighted both with the food and the service. I had three courses from the main menu and my partner had three from the "light bite" menu - although the portions...were generous. The food was served quickly and efficiently by very friendly staff and the whole experience was excellent from start to finish. Reasonably priced too! Warmly recommended!More

very covid friendly to start. staff were attentive , the owner also on hand to chat. A wonderful relaxing environment. We chose from the main menu instead of the set. Dietary restrictions were catered for, as everything made fresh to order. Fantastic. Venison was beautiful,...and I had a fabulous piece of Hake, all beautifully presented. Shame we live 300 miles away. We dine out at at very good eateries. This one is up there with our list of favourites. Thank you for a great eveningMore

Intimate restaurant offering a varied range of dishes highlighting local produce. We were a family group of six, choosing a wide range from the main menu. Everybody raved about their choices and we were perfectly well looked after by the staff and management.

Great local food beautifully prepared. Amazing service and very accommodating to one of us who is gluten free. Generous servings and fuss free . Highly recommended. Well priced for the quality- wine list needs looking at and maybe needs to be better quality,however not at...all over priced.More

The whole experience was fabulous from start to finish. The food is excellent, I had 3 courses off the lite bite menu for £20. The portions are very generous and the only lite part is on your wallet. The staff are lovely and welcome you...like you are a regular. I could not fault the restaurant in any way.More

Had an evening meal here during a stay in Oban. Very busy for a Monday evening but served quite quickly. Tasty food on both A La Carte and Light Bites menu. As with most restaurants in Oban it is advisable to book in advance.
