This was the setting for a very enjoyable birthday lunch. staff were very accommodating of our small three-year-old and we enjoyed an excellent and very good value three course meal. Not too much fuss. Good experience.

“Wonderful!!”
Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

It was worth every penny. The seafood was exceptional (especially the crab, unlike anywhere, you could feel the cold & sweetness of highland water) & service was very lovely as well. The place has a charming homely vibe. On a sunny afternoon, after a tour around Loch Ness, this makes a perfect stop. The staff was accommodating and explained everything on the plate to guests. Would definitely recommend this restaurant for everyone.

“Birthday dinner”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

Excellent food and the choice is amazing. Scallops cooked to perfection as was everything else. I'm not surprised there were no tables available.

“A hidden gem”
Reviewed August 3, 2014 via mobile

Heading off through the Caledonian canal this summer we stopped for the night at Dochgarroch and discovered the Oakwood restaurant. After our 15 min walk from the boat were welcomed in. The owner asked if we had brought wine, as they are not licensed. Unfortunately we had left some on the boat and after a long day we weren't keen on the hike back. Incredibly, the owner threw us a set of keys and said we should take his van! 5 mins later we were sitting relaxing with our wine and awaiting the food we had ordered. When it came, the food was superb. The owner was a super chap with a dry sense of humour, engaging in just the right amount of banter with us to make us feel at home but not too intrusive. What a cracking place - a fab start to our holiday. Eat here, you won't regret it. :)
