Was here on Sunday for about lunch just back of 2pm with husband. Spur of moment decision to call here although I had heard of restaurant and knew it was rated highly. We just had a one course lunch. Husband had liver and I had braised beef in a wine and port sauce - gorgeous and very rich. Husband described... More

Myself and seven of my friends were at Oakwood on Tuesday the 7th October 2014 to celebrate two birthdays and all eight of us cleared our plates at every course!! They have a varied and interesting menu all year round. They use seasonal and local produce of the best quality. I did ask Gus if they had a Christmas menu... More

Visited the Oakwood for a special family dinner, booked beforehand as it is only a small restaurant and we were a party of 8. They also sell small gifts like mugs, prints, scarves etc which hang from the walls and ceiling. This gives you plenty to look at while you're waiting on your food! Right from arrival, the staff were... More

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...

The evening started with a warm welcome from Gus, that was just the beginning our starters were tasty and well presented, The scallops were particularly tasty. For mains we had the braised Angus...

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.
