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.

We had a table right next to the window that allowed us to look out over the 18th on the Old Course. I had the Dornoch Lamb which was delicious and I would fly back from the States just for that. Service was great and the prices were good.

8 friends were traveling in July on a golf junket. Decided to pop in on the word of a fellow Tripadvisor poster. Food delicious, sunset was over the top, but service was a little spotty. You need to make reservations in advance as it was packed the night we went. Spacious room with contemporary appointments. Worth the treat!

Scotland has wonderful restaurants we discovered but the incredible view, professional and attentive service, and most of all the marvelous meals reasonably priced made this our favorite place. So good was it that we ate there two consecutive nights. It was a great both times.

What a glorious view over the Old Course and the Firth of Tay beyond! If you go in June, it stays light until you leave. This is a formal restaurant, with formal but impeccable service. We went for the graduation dinner, but had a wide choice, and everything was beautifully presented and delicious. The starters were a delight, from the... More
