I visited this restaurant with my parents during a short trip to Inverness. The atmosphere in the restaurant was very cosy and informal and Jason was very welcoming. The menu also has a selection of vegetarian and vegan food. The food was delicious with a wonderful selection of vegetables. It was so good that Mum and Dad both went for... More

We stopped here for lunch after being at the Culloden Battlefield. It's a small little place with an attached gift shop. From the ceiling and walls are hung many different mugs and cups along with colorful neck scarves. All of them are for sale in the small gift shop. The older Scottish gentleman, Gus, waited on us and also cashed... More

The restaurant is small and unpretentious, but the food is excellent and the staff welcoming. The added bonus is that you can bring your own wine/bottle. Given the quality and varied choice of food, to be thoroughly recommended.

This is my 2nd time to the Oakwood & it was just as amazing as the 1st. A great place serving freshly cooked food. Both my mother & I are vegetarian and we were delighted that we had such a choice that did not compare to other restaurants who always serve the same old macaroni or goats cheese. Everybody at...

Visited this little restaurant on 22 June 2014 for a family member's 40th birthday, and were welcomed by Gus, who has a dry sense of humour, and we had great banter! Menu choices are wide and varied, causing megga problems chosing, but all four of us were delighted with the meals we had. Freshly cooked dishes, beautiful veggies served on... More

We went for lunch mid April. It looks and feels like a cafe, in need of refurbishment. The home made lemonade was very unpleasant. And £3 per glass! The beef burgers were nice enough but small and served with a few limped lettuce leafs on the side. I'm sure the clouds of smoke and strong cooking smells coming from the... More

There aren't many restaurants in the Inverness area that'd beat this. Friendly service and the finest venison dish (oriental style, with ginger, chilli and garlic) I've ever eaten, without question. Beautiful Scottish-themed desserts, too! Just remember to bring along your own wine; only soft drinks are sold (no corkage charge). I'll be returning here that's for sure!
