“Do they want custom?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Popped in for a coffee and cake whilst out for a long cycle. We asked for the coffees which the nice lady got for us. Tasted like basic granule coffee that wasn't worth the £2 per paper cup. Asked for a bit of cake each. The lady then said she would let us know the price which we found a little strange. When she came back she said it'd be £5 per slice! We thought she was joking! Also, despite the fact that the Restaurant was empty, we were told we had to sit outside. Just very strange. Surely establishments like this would be welcoming, especially to locals. Not the best way to run a business, we will not be recommending the place and certainly not going back, unless we fancy a seriously over priced bit of cake and a poor excuse for a coffee.

“Superb dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

This was our first time in Inverness & we noticed Oakwood as we passed on our way to Fort Augustus for the start of the Loch Ness marathon. We passed it again during a cycle ride & decided to pay a visit - we weren't disappointed! Right from the start the service was warm & friendly & the food was superb. All locally sourced & freshly cooked. We can't recommend Oakwood highly enough. If you're in the area make sure you pay a visit.

“Fabulous lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Tried this place because it was the highest rated restaurant in Inverness. The decor is a little funky - touristy nick nacks hanging from the ceiling - but don't judge a book by its cover. We received a warm welcome from the owner who also served us and charmed us with great conversation. The food was outstanding. I tried their braised beef special that came with vegetables that they kept warm on a rack over candles. Everyone else loved their meals as well. Very happy to have found this place.
