Had a lovely lunch here after a chilly visit to Loch Ness! The outside of the restaurant doesn't do justice to the lovely atmosphere and food, and a very extensive menu. All home cooked (even down to the shortbread biscuit with the desserts). The gentleman owner was very friendly and welcoming. Main courses are desserts were lovely - although there... More

Fabulous, quirky, memorable. A little tea-shop with a big menu that caters for everyone. The cook is very competent and knowledgeable and makes very tasty food. The service is reasonable and served with laid back humour. Take your own bottle of vino and with the homely décor and home-cooked style you'll think you are at a friends house! A café... More

Oakwood Restaurant offers really great home cooked, hearty meals. We were the only two people in the restaurant at the time so it lacked a bit of atmosphere. The food was good though especially the warm chocolate cake and ice cream!

Arrived, think there was a total of 6/7 tables. 2 free so we sat down and given a menu. 10 minutes later no service and another customer took the last table. Another 5 mins pass and the guy takes the order of that customer and ignores us sitting now for 15 mins. He goes into the kitchen 1 minute later... More

We stopped at this small restaurant at the end of the Loch and were delighted with it. It's a modest building but very warm, both in terms of an escape from the sleet and hail but also in terms of the hearty welcome from the staff. In addition to this the food was delicious, a real homey style cooking that... More

Really pleased to find this restaurant through trip advisor. The food was amazing. We love seafood and it was the best quality and cooked to perfection. The vegetables accompaniment was lovely. Will certainly go back next time we are in Inverness.

Called in looking for tea and cakes ,but menus are for lightbite lunches and meals,so we treated ourselves to a main meal and dessert. The roast dinners were tasty and the husband enjoyed his Aberdeen Angus Steak.Whilst i enjoyed the chocolate fudgecake, my friends made the right decision to go for the wonderful Orkney Cheesecake,which in itself will make us...
