My husband and I had dinner at Oakwood on September 23rd and really enjoyed the experience. Being a Tuesday after 8pm the restaurant was not crowded which gave us the opportunity to chat with the owner, Gus. The food was excellent (I loved the chicken and haggis dish) and the dessert of Highland Park whisky and chocolate cheesecake was awesome... More

Arrived at lunch time on Sunday having almost completed our charity Great Glen Paddle for a quick bite which quickly turned into a tasty three course meal. Family run restaurant with great food and very accommodating considering we were wet from our kayaking trip. Service was great and food was brilliant. Close to the canal for boating tourists looking for... More

I'd found this restaurant on trip advisor and followed it up to see if the reviews were true or not, and needless to say we were suitably impressed. The meals we had ordered were fantastic, the order was delivered promptly and served with a smile, the decor of the restaurant is rather quirky and homely. the co-owner Gus was very... More

Excellent food with gluten free options available, and an understanding of the requirements. Slightly quirky, but welcoming ......as long as you're going to have a meal !

This is a family restaurant that is run by the owners who obviously had a dream and went out to live it out. This is a combination of amazing Scottish produce - cooked to a very high standard by people who love what they are doing. The servers were fun as well as attentive. You took you own wine which...

Menu is refreshingly different, with everything sounding tempting. We went for the scallops and venison, which were both perfect in every way. Chocolate and whisky cheesecake was to die for afterwards. Service was excellent. Wish we had found this place earlier in our holiday, as we would have returned.

With 'boating holidays' over the years, this lovely place has become a 'must'. For us, it is the finest place to dine in the 'Great Glen' and has always formed part of that holiday. Absolutely no point in going through the varying menu; with family, think now that we have the 'T' shirts for savouring a goodly proportion of what... More

The owner seemed genuinely interested in making sure that we had a enjoyable evening. The restaurant also houses a gift shop - interesting to browse around... More
