Oyster Bar & Restaurant Ellenabeich

The Oyster Bar & Restaurant is a family run business located in the beautiful and historic village of Ellenabeich, Easdale, approximately 16 miles south of Oban on the West Coast of Argyll.

We are situated overlooking the village square of this historic village to the front and have a rear seating area which looks across the Atlantic taking in views of the islands of Scarba and Jura to name but two of the many islands seen from this superb vantage point.

A one-time micro-brewery was located next door to the current premises, however all brewing stopped in 2008.

In addition to our menu we offer a variety of regionally sourced Scottish Real Ales, Malt Whisky’s and wines for our customers which are selected to complement our menu and the local setting.

We would like to take this opportunity to offer a warm welcome to everyone and we look forward to meeting all of our customers during the coming season.


Our menu is seasonal and primarily seafood based with our ingredients being fresh and locally sourced, however we offer a wide variety of choice to cater for everyone’s tastes.

"We were out sightseeing on the 31st of December 2014. The weather was awful and fancied something to eat. We had been to this place some ten years ago, and had a fabulous seafood meal. We were surprised to find the place open at such a quiet time. There was a coal fire in the bar which made the place cosy. The menu was limited, which you can understand at this time of the year. Nevertheless the tempura prawns and salad were spot on. The portions were very generous. Well done to the owners for taking the time to open up. We will certainly be back when we are next over that way and will recommend to anyone we know that is travelling that way."

"I have never had better fish and chips. All of the food on the menu looked good, but I had to try the fish. Large portions and an incredibly attentive staff."

"We stayed next door to the Oyster Restaurant - very lucky find. This is such a wonderful restaurant/bar on a beautiful island. The wines, beers, food and ambience fantastic. The locals were so friendly and helpful, pointing us into the right direction for our fishing trips. The landlord 'Geordie' is a legend and very friendly. We had dinner there three nights but would have had a meal every evening, but as the season was beginning to slow down the restaurant was not open for food every night but the pub was open."

"Stayed in nearby Ardmaddy and visited Easdale for Seafaring and the Slate Museum. Had lunch at the Oyster and was very pleasantly surprised at the food quality. Lovely presentation of the crab dish. Local beer is good, staff friendly. Recommended."
