Fine dining with one of the best views in St Andrews. Service was top notch and dining an experience. I have never had a better lobster. Cooked perfect and topped off with a nice dessert with birthday wishes. Enjoy

Visited Rocca last night for dinner, a last minute decision to eat out. Thankfully they had a table for us and so glad they did. I can honestly say its the best meal i've ever had, and the service was spot on too. Lovely surroundings, lovely staff. Food to die for! I could go on and on but no need... More

I had dinner in this restaurant with 7 other members of my family on the 23rd August 2014. It had been recommended. Of course the setting is beautiful and it was a superb sunset when we arrived around 8.00 p.m We met in the bar for pre prandials and the barman on duty was terrific. We went through to the... More

The Rocca Bar and Grill is on the ground floor of Rusacks Hotel and so looks out over the venerable 18th green of the Old Course. If you are a golf lover then you probably do not need any further inducements to eat in this beautiful restaurant but there are lots more. The food is simply the best around; the... More

Food was decent, Service was epically slow. From what I could tell, only the one woman floor manager was able to take orders, drop off the check, and run the credit card. No other waitstaff except for bussers and runners. We sat down around 8pm, ordered swiftly and our salad came our very promptly however entrees weren't served until 9:30.... More

I always rate places on how well they deal with my dietary foibles (lactose intollerant). Birthday meal for my partner, with picture perfect presentation, tiny micro veg, sublime tasting food, its no wonder it has 3 rosettes. Cant wait to go back..... And the prices are really really reasonable!

Having been recommended to dine at Rocca by friends we certainly were not disappointed! Starting in the relaxed yet sophisticated ambience of the Rbar for pre dinner drinks, which contains an extensive range of drinks to cater for every customer including some of the more quirky and local drinks - all expertly prepared by the barman set the tone nicely...

Cannot complain about Rocca and would recommend within the multiple nice eateries in St Andrews. The service was polite and promt, the ambience is nice and the decor is lovely.
