You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Oban

The Waterfront Fishouse Restaurant

1, Railway Pier, Oban PA34 4LW, UK – 01631 563110

Informal, first floor seafood restaurant overlooking the harbour. Excellent lunchtime menu. Seafood chowder is the best I've ever had. Excellent staff. Go early or book, it gets busy.

An absolute gem. Very cosy and welcoming. Fish is very fresh and locally sourced. Service was very attentive and seamless - made a nice change from the over hyped restaurants we normally go to in London where the waiters think they’re the stars of the show and the food tastes like it’s been sourced from a bomb shelter.

Coast Restaurant

104 George St, Oban PA34 5NT, UK – 01631 569900

CLASSY RESTAURANT, VEGETARIAN FRIENDLY, GREAT SERVICE! We arrived at Oban in the evening and asked for the restaurant recommendation from out host at Sutherland Guest House and he pointed us to this place for classy feel and best mussels in town! Since I am vegetarian and my hubby wanted to try mussels from Isle of Mull, we decided to check this place out and we were not disappointed a bit! AMBIANCE: The ambiance is very upscale and this place is always full . We had to wait for 20 mins to get the table. So if you are planning on going, please make the reservation beforehand. They play for soft music and the decor is very soothing as well. SERVICE: The servers are very friendly and always eager to help. They are pretty quick in responding but do not hover over the table to overwhelm you. We asked for recommendation for bottle of red wine and her recommendation didn't disappoint and paired nicely with our dinner. Food: Below is what we ordered: -Mussels: they get fresh mussels from Isle of mull so we ordered them to fulfill my husbands bucket list. The mussels came in a creamy sauce and were fresh and delicious - Salmon Fillet; which was backed perfectly and had nice flavors to it -Roasted Herb Gnocchi with Goat's Cheese: I loved the Gnocchi especially the flavors that were imparted by the sauce and shiitake mushrooms -We ordered Chocolate tart for dessert which came with pistachio topping and boy it was mouthwatering! We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals at the Coast and highly recommend checking this place out!

Great restaurant. Very friendly staff and the food was delicious. Highly recommend if you're in the Oban area.

Good location overlooking the commercial harbour and yacht marina. Spacious informal seafood restaurant. Polite and helpful staff. Set lunch is tasty and great value. I'll definitely be back.

Brilliant place! Friendly staff, beautiful location, fresh local seafood and a great drink selection! Portions were massive. I ordered sea bass and got 2 on the plate! Dinner for 2 with 2 mains, 1 starter and drinks came to £48 so pretty reasonable!
