The food was excellent. We both had the salmon and it was done to perfection.
Alexa was our server and she was friendly and knowledgeable about the food and beverages. Would definitely eat there again.

This is my second time dining at the Restaurant Oban Inn and once again it did not disappoint. The food is always so fresh and delicious. Jimmy was our server and he was so attentive, polite, and offered the best service as our server.

If you come here you definitely need to order the Lobster Spaghetti it is a 10/10 and you will definitely smell the fresh lobster the minute you walk into the restaurant. Overall I really enjoyed my second time here and will always recommend it to my friends.

My 1/2 inch thick “ribeye” was tasty but very difficult to cut through all the fat. My partner thoroughly enjoyed her lobster spaghetti.

Excellent food. The mussels were divine and the chicken supreme was heavenly. Definitely it is the best mushroom risotto I have ever had.
I did choose to wear my mask at times since it was indoor and there were a few other diners who were unmasked who were spread out.

Beautiful setting outside. Good food, we loved the Crab Cakes and the Chicken with Mushroom Risotto was delicious! Service was a bit slow, even though there were only a few tables when we arrived. It did fill up more later.

We had a nice experience at the Oban Inn restaurant during Covid when outside dining was all that was permitted.

We were sat in the garden under the mature trees which was very nice. it did start to rain a little, and other tables chose not to take a chance with outside dining. We wondered why so many months into covid, the hotel had not tried to purchase umbrellas just in case it rained!

Having said that, the meal was excellent and the service was knowledgeable and friendly. Since we have a home in NOTL, we will be returning for sure.

The shrimp and scallop entree with the corn and bean salad is one of the best things I’ve ever eaten. Absolutely delicious. My husband had the steak and he’s a very picky steak guy - he raved about it. He also had the mussels to start and highly recommends.

All tables outdoors due to Covid and was a perfect experience as weather cooperated. Server was attentive and made helpful wine pairing suggestions. Lobster pasta had a wonderful cream sauce. Inn looks charming and very inviting, in a great location - hope to stay sometime.

We had a beautiful romantic dinner at the outside patio in a lovely garden courtyard. The ambiance and atmosphere were perfect. We both ordered Angus Reserved Ribeye and the food was impeccable. We look forward to returning in the future.

Our meal was very good. The metal chairs are very uncomfortable but I asked for cushions and they accommodated us which made our seating much more comfortable. Overall, good meal, service and ambience.

The feeling in the patio was amazing. So beautiful to sit in a super nice classical front garden, turned into patio, sitting under this wonderful tree. The food quality was outstanding and the service was permanently at high level. So highly recommended!
