Absolutely fabulous food and service at the Fig & Thistle. We were seated upstairs and the server welcomed us on arrival and provided us with a great service. The food was excellent and very well presented. This was our first visit and will definitely be back on our next visit to Inverness.

Good food, well presented and tasty. I recommend the dessert selection- the hardest choice of the meal. I suspect every choice is worth having.
Cheerful service from all.
A random choice for us but one that worked and will return to.

A lovely little bistro, clean, friendly staff. Even with a small lunch menu it was hard to chose as the selection was eclectic and it all sounded tasty. Food was served promptly, nice and hot. My goats cheese salad had unique and flavourful ingredients and would highly recommend. Would definitely try for dinner there sometime.

Excellent all round. I personally felt a bit chilly but your radiators were on so just me by the window. Candles maybe? Didn't notice if you had any Xmas decorations up. Well done though under present circumstances.

Our first time dining at the fig and thistle and it did not disappoint. A wonderful meal, and very friendly staff. All covid19 restrictions in place, making it feel very comfortable and relaxing. We were on a 2 person table upstairs and the end of the restaurant and felt like a private dining experience! Will definitely return!
