About BAAB Meze Grill | Perle Oban

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.

Cuisine: Mediterranean, BBQ & Grill, Eastern Mediterranean, Scottish

Not the biggest menu, but don't let that put you off, our food looked good on the plate and was perfectly cooked, spices and seasoning enhance your meal, the side salad and side dishes were full of flavour, ask your waiter to explain the desert menu we did and were not disappointed.

Food was nice. Service was hopeless. Slow to take our order. Bad advice on what to order and how much. Food that should have been served together came out of order. Wine came at the end of the meal. We had to pay for our complementary glass of wine that we were to receive as a result of booking ahead. Staff did not know who had ordered what, and our order was given to someone else. The wait staff were not friendly nor accommodating. By contrast, the hotel staff were excellent.

Although we had informed the restaurant before arrival that one of our party couldn't have any Gluten the waitress was a bit vague as to what she could order from the menu, it was only when we asked her to check with the kitchen was a menu list with all allergens produced which could have helped her make her choice prior to everyone else ordering. Also we asked how we should order, if the small plates were starters or it should be all ordered at the same time. We were told to order it to all come together but the small plates arrive about 10 minutes before the larger dishes. Having said this our party of 6 all thoroughly enjoyed the food we had. It was all delicious and well presented. The wine was reasonably priced and delicious and the cocktails were great. We all said we would eat here again.

Luxury hotel room with fantastic view over the harbour, breakfast service was a little slow, which we were told was due to being short staffed, however cooked breakfast when served was first class and our evening meal in BAAB restaurant great too. Not a lot to fault at this hotel.

We had a meal at BAAB which was excellent. The down side was we waited 25 minutes for our drink to come. Also our starter came and we had just had a few mouthfuls then the main course arrived. We asked if the main course could be taken back , but after a few minute of trying to explain to the waitress who spoke broken English we just accepted it.

Food is really delicious and such a refreshing change for Argyll. It would be helpful to highlight gluten within foods for ease, but saying that, staff appear knowledgeable about the menu.

Your location was great for our taking the ferry in the morning. It was loud in the street over night for a half hour due to a drunk young adult so it was hard to sleep. Food was good at the restaurant but the service was very slow. Location was perfect as were your front desk staff. Thanks. Bruce

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!

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