I am a frequent visitor through the doors of the Macmillians Bistro in Buchlyvie, the only thing that stops me from becoming a weekly one is the fear my thighs will not allow me to get back out again.
Many restaurants offer a varied and wide selection in their menu's but I often find they lack the fundamental skills to execute the basics, such as steamed veg and bread rolls, so why bother? What the Macmillians menu offers may be considered sparse but much more importantly what they deliver is exceptional quality, well proportioned, delicious dishes.
Don't let the unassuming building fool you into thinking this is another infamous eatery where mediocrity and the mere banishment of hunger pangs is met and where what you pay for and what you actually get don't seem to add up. The Bistro serves up exquisite mouthwatering food and plenty of it, for a fair price and with friendly approachable service all rolled into one immensely enjoyable dinning experience, what more could you ask for? I highly recommend the seafood chowder of which I can not sing enough praise about and if you have a sweet tooth any one of the spectacular desserts will more than satisfy your desire, the menu also offers up tasty options for diners of the vegetarian persuasion. I also appreciated the bring your own bottle, for which there is no charge for corkage. A top tip for customers on a budget is to pop in mid week when your bill will come to no more than your usual takeaway though I promise the difference in quality will be significant, I almost felt bad for paying so little for such incredible food, almost.
So bring a nice bottle of wine, bring a loved one, bring the family and most certainly bring your appetite because the Bistro is a dining experience to truly be savored.
