I got the Vege panini and she got the artichoke and portabello mushrooms on flat bread. Both wonderful. The staff was courteous and attentive. We will... More

I discovered this great little restaurant by accident and am mad I just didn't find it sooner! I was actually in Inverness for business and always try to eat at local places and had not had very good luck so far... then I found this Gem of a place. The best appetizer I have ever had! There was a dollop... More

My husband, a friend and I went to dinner here recently. I had heard good things about it, but like with many things, we overlook things closest to home. I am so glad we went. The menu is imaginative without being so weird that a picky person couldn't find something to like. I had salmon with a maple and berry... More

This place is one of the best restaurants in the area. It's quite small so reservations are a must. The food and the service were outstanding.

Mom has wanted to stop in here. Why did we wait so long! We had a lovely Saturday lunch of salads and crab cakes. What a peaceful time. Banana bread was delicious and I wanted more before mine was gone! Treat yourself.

Excellent food, great ambiance, and great service. It was our anniversary and they made us feel welcomed with a customized menu. My husband had the raspberry stuffed chicken and I had the stuffed portabella mushroom. Everything was cooked to order. For dessert we shared the creme brulee. We will definitely go again.

My husband and I were in the area on Friday night for dinner. Although we've visited this restaurant once before, I had not tried the Sea Bass. The dish was phenominal; the best Sea Bass I've ever tasted. Great job chef! The wait staff were very accommodating as well. We will dine here again soon.

This restaurant has it all--delightful ambience, delicious food, and excellent service. Their daily specials are always delicious and you should definitively give their homemade soups a try. For an appetizer I would highly recommend their stuffed artichokes (although their other appetizers are delicious, as well). And save room for dessert! The gluten-free chocolate torte is scrumptious, the bread pudding is... More

The Mcleod House Bistro is one of our favorite places for special occasions like birthdays and anniversaries. The menu always has some very creative choices and the food is always delicious. On several occasions there has been a gentleman playing softly on a keyboard. Normally I don't like music during a meal because it intrudes on the conversation, but that... More

My husband and I were taken here for our birthday by our daughter. Had escargot (excellent) and Bruschetta (v. good)for appetizer, mushroom soup (unbelievably good) instead of salad, pork chop (good) w/potato pancake (ehh-not done enough) & braised cabbage (again..ehh)along with Chilean sea bass that was only so-so (according to my husband). Desserts were key lime pie w/mile-high meringue w/lime... More
