Spacious dining room in Queen's Hotel, I'm not sure if it has changed its name from the Glen Campa, but whatever it may be called, the food and service are good with excellent staff, varied menu. Also within the Queen's Hotel is the Queen's Bar Grill, which serves most of the same dishes plus some pub staples, but in less... More

Stayed at this hotel and also ate here in the evening as the food is excellent even with a fussy eater! Good menu choice and service. Very reasonably priced.

As we were staying at this hotel we had several meals here. The first night we shared a Chateaubriand and on the second night we had salmon. Both were tasty and the service was great but I wouldn't go as far as calling it fine dining. I would definitely recommend a meal here and it will be enjoyable but don't... More

I would recommend the salmon fillet from the grill! We enjoyed everything we had and the soup portions are good!

I had a most enjoyable six course meal with friends much of it served on rocks! The staff explained each course and often the chef visited our table to give further information. Our table was booked for 19.30, but we didn’t finish until after 23.00. French a paced dinning!

Delicious five course set menu which was actually eight plates including appetisers and petit fours. Great selection of locally sourced food for a fantastic price of £32. I look forward to visiting again.

We discovered this restaurant last year and I have to report that the food is as good now as it was then. Very good meal in pleasant room with A1 service. Some capital city sites could take lessons

Based in the Best Western Hotel, this restaurant is reasonably priced for what I would call 'fine dining', and the staff are excellent. However, if you are a picky eater, or just like simple/plain food it's probably not for you. I am such a person, so didn't have a starter as nothing appealed and I don't eat fish or sea-food,...

Whilst we were visitng Oban as a birthday treat for my wife, I booked the Glen Campa for our dinner on the Saturday. I made the decision based on the Trip Advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. This has to be the biggest bargain in the West of Scotland. It sets out to provide fine dining and it does...
