“Great menu and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

We have been here twice now. I would say that the food cannot be faulted and the range on the menu is really impressive. I am mainly a vegetarian but do sometimes eat wild meat or fish. This is definately a menu to impress my needs. My feelings are that the food is very homely and what I had for mains would be the kind of thing I like to cook myself. They were very tasty and the sweets were fantastic.
The atmosphere I have not quite figured out yet as it is a bit unusual but the option to bring your own is a great one and the setting fantastic.
Definately worth a visit if you are out that way.

“fantastic little haven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Having had a busy five weeks it was time for me to entertain two very good friends. I happened to come on this webiste and found this place. Although I pass it often I never once thought of visiting. How wrong was I. having visited the reviews I knew that there was banter waiting and we got just that from start to finish. Everything about this place was fantastic, nice, clean, friendly, NO CORKAGE, and a lovely wee reasonably priced shop for gifts to visit as well. Its a must and the food is to die for especially the Highland Park cheesecake YUM YUM. We will be back.

“Truly scottish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013 via mobile

This small restaurant is very scottish and romantic the food is brilliant and everything cooked fresh and from scratch. I loved how we got a seperate dish of veg on top of a candle lit rack. Orkney fudge cheesecake is highly reccommended definitly worth the visit breathtaking scenery on the way along aswell.

“No words can say enough about this Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

This is a find that should be shared . While on our way back from the Isle of Skye with friends . We tried two restaurants beore this one but were full. So pleased they were. This is one of the best places to eat . All local meat & fish cooked to perfection, The Scallops I had were cooked just right , tricky fish to cook. My husband had Beef Rib Roast that melted in your mouth. It was like sitting in someones front room. If I lived in Scotland it would be the only place we would like to eat. Great couple

“Beautiful, tasty Scottish Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

After a lovely day visiting the Isle of Skye with friends, we went to the Oakwood Restaurant, had the best food ever. The whisky & chocolate cheesecake is quite unique light and very tasty.

After speaking with Gus he explained that he sources all of his meat/fish locally. It is the best quality food that I have ever had/tasted. It is quite a small place so if possible book you table in advance. They are unlicensed but you can take your own bottle...no corkage fee.
