This review is taken from the 2011 edition.
As befits an outfit that owns two fishing boats and sets up home on the end of a pier the Waterfront's commitment to fresh seafood and local sourcing is impeccable. Flanked by a huddle of pier head shops and the Oban ferry terminal, the restaurant is based in a former seaman's mission and offers panoramic views of Oban bay. Chef Roy Stalker has a nimble touch conjuring magical daily specials from halibut, scallops, salmon, haddock and many other sparkling Scottish ingredients.
