We booked the Rockpool as part of a tour of Scotland and were not disappointed. The welcome was warm on a wet night and the food was excellent. Venison and scallops were both fabulous. Didn’t have pudding as we were full. Definitely worth booking as...More

Lots of fish on the menu, plenty to eat - generous portions. Really tasty and a nice break between courses. Although the place is always busy they don't rush you. Highly recommend.

We very much enjoyed our dining experience at this restaurant. Food was nicely prepared, the ambience was warm, and the service was pleasant. Compared to other options, Rocpool has a nicer wine list as well.

By far the best meal we had in Scotland. The quality of food and presentation was immaculate and the excellent staff made for a memorable evening. Just a cut above the rest. Cannot wait to return.

In a word: Wow. If you are in Inverness and want a first class, five star dinner, look no further than Rocpool. Reservations are essential. We cannot recommend this establishment high enough - EVERYTHING was simply outstanding.

Many places do not accept AmEx in Scotland. I do not recall if this restaurant did or not. My advice is to make sure you have another an alternate credit card to use while in Scotland.

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.
