We drove a few minutes outside the city to eat here. We are so glad we did. We called earlier in the day to make a reservation and since we arrived a few minutes early we decided to walk along the river. The food was so fresh and perfect. You could tell a lot of thought and effort goes into... More

We cycled to the Oakwood Restaurant along the canal path while the car was booked in for its service and MOT, and it was a grand day out. From Harbour road it was an easy route past the railway station and the Rose Street car parks, then through School Lane, Church Lane, across the river on the footbridge, then along... More

I had dinner here based on a recommendation from the lodge I was staying at ... It should be after researching on TripAdvisor not number 3 it should be number 1.... Great food and good service .. The place is small and intimate... You definitely should book... Love it...

We came across this place whilst looking for somewhere to eat Food is absolutely delicious and inexpensive Take your own wine as the restaurant do not have a licence to sell it. (Do not let this put you off going) So good that we returned the next night Although a small place it is in demand so try to book... More

My boyfriend and I stopped here randomly on the way back from a mini break in Skye. We were so delighted we found this place! Amazing, friendly service and the food was absolutely delicious! I ordered the Orkney fudge cheesecake for dessert and hands down the best cheesecake I've ever had! And I've had a lot! You can tell all... More

The best +++ proper bowl of homemade soup . I've written before about this restaurant because it's just so good and unpretentious! I think if I didn't know how good the food is I'd probably pass by . If I had to recommend a restaurant in Inverness I'd say this one for overall value for money and excellent food.

The owning family cares about the sourcing of the food, the preparation of the food and the serving of the food. We enjoyed our meals immensely. There is nothing fancy, there is no pretense, there is just good eating. We found Oakwood late in our stay in the Highlands and only had one opportunity to dine. But since we are... More

Always great food here, they dont serve alcohol but you can bring your own (which is even better really !). Food is locally and nationally sourced, quirky little restaurant a little bit out of town. Service is always great and I've never been disappointed in the food.
