The first time we visited Inverness we stumbled across this restaurant so thought we would try it out, not knowing much about it at all. We had the most amazing meal and vowed to return again before too long. That was a couple of years ago, and we have now returned to try again. Everything was faultless! The restaurant itself...

We visited McGonagall's on the 19th Feb 2017 myself hubby & kids. First let me say they do accept card payments as a previous review nearly put us of going with that wrong bit of information. Our meal from start to finish was lovely the Cullen skink soup was one of the best if not the best I have ever... More

I decided to take two of my pals here. They hadn't been before. I promised lots of good hearty food, like a proper steakhouse. Once we were sitting down, it took 15 mins to get a drinks order in. Starters came 15 mis later. I ordered crispy belly pork. I have to say it was very tasty but not at... More

Had a pork belly starter, it was absolutely tiny one small piece of pork belly. Had the sirloin steak for main. This was a poor steak, very thin cut, tough with fat and sinew through the steak. Got the steak, small number of chips, mushroom and tomatoe and that was it with steak. Onion rings were an additional charge as... More

We were walking along the picturesque banks of the river in Inverness. It was cold. We were hungry. We saw it. We went in. We were so pleased we did! There is plenty to choose from on the menu - but in the end we both ordered the same main course. The Caledonian Fillet Steak. We eat out a lot... More

Service was average and quite slow. They tried to overcharge us by £20 by not giving an itemised bill (table of 8) . Guests had to wear their jackets at the table as every time the door opened it was freezing. Did not seem to have any heating on in the restaurant and relied on warmth coming through from the...

The service was ok, food mediocre at best. Our filet steak was not tender and was over cooked. The venison was really tough ( difficult to cut even with a steak knife). The overall experience was extremely disappointing and expensive for the subpar meal that we received. We will not visit again.

We ate here on the 11th for a birthday and we've eaten here for many years even when the restaurant was across the road, but this place has gone down hill badly we won't be eating here again. We both ordered steak and when it arrived there was steak, half a cooked tomato, one slightly large mushroom and a very... More

The food was perfectly acceptable and the wine was reasonably priced and very drinkable. However the service was appalling. We entered the restaurant between 8pm and 8.30pm and by 9.30pm were being hassled to leave. There was no offer of sweet or coffee or further drinks, the bill was plonked down, and this followed lights being flashed. Take my advice... More
