We visited this restaurant on our trip from Inverness to the Isle of Skye. The traditional Scottish food was absolutely delicious and service was great. I would definitely dine here again.

From the outside it appears nothing special but you would be greatly mistaken. Inside you will find the food is of the highest quality and locally sourced - and served by a dry wit Orcadian! We have been on some six family occasions and always...More

Excellent traditional Scottish restaurant, where you can find regional dishes, very tasty. the place is very charming and the service is done by the owners, who are super friendly. On site there is also a souvenir shop with many cool products.

The family went here for dinner last night. What a fantastic meal. Locally sourced meats, cooked into glorious stews and meals. Get your favourite bottle of wine from the supermarket and enjoy it with a hearty, well cooked meal. Very reasonably priced too.

We went to this gem of a restaurant twice, for our first and last night in Inverness. The food was just delicious. My favourite was the honey and whiskey brûlée. I'd happily go back to eat here again and again and again if I could

Just dined at Oakwood. The best meal we have had in a very long time. Amazing flavours combined with the freshest tastiest local produce. What a pity we are going home on Saturday.

Yes, they have plenty of gluten free dishes. My daughter is coeliac so we have to pay particular attention to this in restaurants. She was delighted with the choices on the menu and the specials board.
