“Angus the #1 coo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

My partner and I visited the highland capital for a weekend recently and decided to give mcgonagalls a try having read the reviews on trip advisor , and boy did the food live up to expectations :) . We shared a chefs own pate which was very nice and both decided on the beef stroganoff having been advised the beef was Aberdeen Angus , we thoroughly enjoyed what we both described as delicious ,this was followed by a totally scrummy cheesecake which was so light it almost floated of the plate . Well done chef ! Your food is to die for .
One word of warning our table was near the door which a waitress wedged open at one point and the draught slightly spoiled things ( I guess the highlanders are tougher than us lol ) don't let this put you off ,if your up there the food here is a must . I promise you won't be disappointed .

“Lunch or Dinner and we're off to a winner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

I've been to McGongall's on a number of occasions now and each visit have been nothing less than a delight.

Not only is the food on offer more than reasonably priced while also being extremely delicious, but the staff have always been extremely friendly and helpful.

When having steak the chefs cook such to perfection with some of my accompanying party member being extremely picky with that sort of thing, but even they can't fault any of the cooking.

Unlike some of the other eateries in the city the portion sizes are just right, you're left feeling satisfied, without struggling to clean your plate, but also they're not mean with their portion control either...it's just right.

For a homely setting with fantastic food, friendly staff and an all round enjoyable experience with friends and family, I'd suggest dropping in and seeing seeing for yourself :).

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

My girlfriend and I were here for a birthday dinner and we absolutely loved it. The steaks themselves are tremendous but in addition to the steaks are wonderful appetisers and desserts. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The food was delivered quite quickly, but that did not mean lacking in quality, far from it. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Inverness as you will go away with a belly full of fantastic food and drink.

“Consistently Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

This was our third visit this year to this restaurant and once again we were really impressed with the quality of food and attentive service.

We started with the soup special and the haggis parcels which were really tasty. Followed with a steak for my wife and the venison special for me, both cooked to perfection. We finished with two lovely sweets.

Certainly recommend a visit to this restaurant, but generally need to book if it’s the weekend.
