Went for dinner. Weren’t expecting it to be so fancy. Staff was attentive. Meal was a la carte, no specials. The food was very good, probably a bit pricey compared with the local offer. But definitely worthy for a special night.

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.
