Best place we ate in Inverness. Food quality superb. I had the venison which was delicious and everyone in our party loved it. Obviously not cheap - not far off London prices - but worth it. Gets booked up quickly as it is not a...More

We have eaten in Rocpool before and had good food, if a bit expensive. Went again with friends who booked an early table. We were looking forward to the meal. I arrived a little early. My husband dropped me off at the door as it...More

Dined here on Friday on an early evening meal deal. Not greatest value menu in town but 100% worth the extra cost. Consistently high quality service and food.

Once again, we have had a wonderful lunch in Rocpool Restaurant. Perfectly cooked and flavoured food was washed down by a delicious Greek - yes, Greek - wine from the extensive wine list. We love this restaurant and are never disappointed!

Since it opened in 2002, Rocpool Restaurant ha become an effervescent Inverness brasserie with a loyal fan base. A cool contemporary decor with lots of bare wood and bold colours give a buzzy vibe to the restaurant which is situated in a prime site on the banks of the River Ness. The kitchen has a repotoire of eclectic modern dishes which use Scotland's matchless produce sprinkled with Mediterranean sunshine, plus a pinch of exotic spice here and there.
