About Perle Oban Hotel - BAAB

THE BIRTH OF BAAB

BAAB was born from a passion to create a place that people can indulge in authentic dishes from the Eastern Mediterranean, in relaxed surroundings that promote sharing and bonding over meals.

We have created a menu, which has something for everyone. Grilled meats from our charcoal grill, local seafood, dips like humous for sharing and plenty of vegetarian / vegan friendly dishes, and not least our amazing meze.


CREATING A PLACE TO SHARE

Meals in the Eastern Mediterranean countries are shared with a combination of meze dishes, larger dishes and sides. All ordered at once and served when ready.

Say goodbye to food envy or post order regret.
Order 2-3 dishes per person and taste it all.

Cutlery is on the table, but don’t be afraid to tear off that bread and scoop up some meze or wrap a piece of grilled lamb. We have no rules here.

We went out to Baab as a family of four on a Friday night and thoroughly enjoyed our visit The food was excellent with good sized portions and well presented. Would definitely recommend this to others and will come back again in the future. The only slight down-side is that we didn't receive our drinks until the starter was served (not a big deal and really the only thing we could pick at) Overall, excellent place and well worth a visit!

So good to find the food from the Eastearn Mediterranean in Oban. Having lived in the Eastern Med.for many years we very much appreciated the freshness of the food and the good size portions on the small plates. Muhammara is always a favourite so it's was great to see it on the menu ( added Pomegrante molasses could only improve it please, Syrian Muharmara is our favourite ) The waiting staff we lovely, friendly and helpful, it was busy, we felt another waiter would have helped in such a large space. We will definitely return.

We were very excited about our dinner with friends at BAAB. Unfortunately, we had a less than desirable experience. The service was incredibly slow, they didn’t know their menu, they were unresponsive to our requests, and our bill was inaccurate for both dinner and breakfast. One of the worst service experiences we’ve ever had.

Service was diabolical. I’ve eaten in many restaurants but I have never experienced service like it. Sorry was their favourite word.

We had a reservation for 7pm. There was us and 2 other tables taken in the restaurant. After an hour of waiting we asked our waitress what was happening with her order. She had a total look of shock and didnt look like she actual remembered we had ordered anything. We finally got it but after an hour of waiting it really wasnt up to standard. My partners lamb was so full of fat he couldn't eat any of it. The hummous was totally dry. My greek salad, Babaganoush and halloumi was fine but you cant really go wrong with that. To be fair to our waitress she took the drinks off our bill but no checking to see if we were ok once we actually had our food. The waiter who took our bill couldnt have been less interested in us. All in all it was a real let down especially after having great service in the hotel.

I booked on line and was only offered 2 times 6pm or 7.30. When we arrived it was empty at 6.00 pm and we would have preferred 7:00. It was no where full at 7,00 or even 8.00 and we were disappointed at having to eat so early unnecessarily it would seem!

The welcome we received was second to none. We didn't catch the name of the lady who checked us in and out, but we want to thank her very much indeed. What a brilliant stay we enjoyed :)

Food was pretty poor in restaurant. Very bland, unseasoned food. Breakfast was actually worse!

Great quality fresh food- a very welcome venue for Oban. The lamb kebab is superb and is well complimented by the good range of small sharing dishes. The olives are particularly good! Good alround experience in a nice airy dining room.

Great food, great service, the surroundings are beautiful but it’s just a shame it was so quiet. I think you need to do some more advertising or special offers to bring people through your door!

We were genuinely impressed. We saw the good reviews and were optimistic but it was even better than we'd expected The lamb was perfectly cooked and the Adana delicious. Very friendly service too. Thanks...

BAAB is a great addition to the Oban dining scene. The menu selection was extensive and the food was great. However, service was a bit haphazard and the policy of serving only 1 mini pita bread to accompany 5 meze starters really should be reconsidered. We asked for sufficient bread to accompany our starters and were charged 40p per piece. Bread is a staple of the Middle Eastern diet and in the vast majority of ME restaurants I've dined in is provided free of charge in plentiful supply. Oh and one final comment - please turn the heating up!
