Just finished an excellent meal at the McLeod Bistro. The restaurant is situated in an older house with small rooms and a few dining tables in each. This does not lead to intimate conversations as tables are close together. However, service was pleasant and efficient, dinner entrees were superb, portions were large, and well prepared. Entrees are a la carte,... More

So OK, I've only had Chilean 3 times in my life. However, the first 2 times were pretty great but the freshness of the ingredients and the skill of the chef at McLeod were unparalleled. Cooking timed to perfection. On the menu, the description of the House salad sounds like any other 'mixed greens' based on tasteless iceberg, but no,... More

This was our first visit to McLeod House Bistro, but we will return. Considering it was one of their busiest nights, our service was outstanding and the food delicious. My husband had the duck breast and enjoyed it, I had the filet which was delicious. The atmosphere was romantic and cozy, with live music (love songs), being performed in the... More

Chef Michael is a master at preparing really delicious, fresh food in a kitchen the size of a postage stamp. The Mcleod House Bistro is in a small historic home in the tiny, backwater town of Inverness. Chef Michael, Beth his wife(at the front of the house) and his staff have elevated their restaurant to the highest standards of any... More

I stumbled upon this restaurant while trying to find a new place to take my friend for her birthday. It was amazing. I made a reservation for lunch (which I recommend) and they asked if we were celebrating a special occasion. I said yes. And when we got there the menu said "Happy Birthday" with my friends name on it.... More
