The Canadiano coffee was really smooth and not at all bitter, even after we allowed it to cool for a while.
Overall: simple menu, great bannock, smooth Canadiano.

Oakwood is a medium sized restaurant located on 4th near macdonald. offering west coast fair, this was the first time that I have been there. During their dine out event they were only offering the dine out menu.
For appetizers, we had a beet salad, cauliflower soup, and pork ravioli. Presentation was clean. The food was lightly flavoured and my companion loved that there was a pork dish that was out of the ordinary and delicious.
For mains I had the sable fish which was devine. Apart from the excellent presentation it was also cooked perfectly moist.
The mushroom risotto was also cooked well and served in a cash iron pan to retain the heat. Cheesy and delicious.
The lamb shank was served on top of a bed of mash potatoes which was the pefect accompaniment for the lamb shank sauce.
For dessert we had an apple crumble and a deconstructed nanaimo bar. The custard made the nanaimo bar too sweet and heavy, so I preferred the apple crumble instead.
Overall the service was friendly, the food amazing. We will definitely be back for more.
