At Rocca St Andrews our recipe for success is a fusion of exquisite food with a backdrop of one of the world's most famous sporting locations - the Old Course. Like the many champions that have graced the hallowed course, we too top the leaderboard as one of only 25 restaurants in the country with three AA Rosettes in 2013 - a reward for the creativity and passion of the Rocca family. The stunning view over the 18th means guests enjoy much more than just a delicious meal. Our menu features Scottish cooking with an Italian twist. Fresh ingredients are sourced from artisan producers either on our doorstep or in Tuscany and there is something to suit every palate. With a real pedigree in both our front-of-house and in our kitchen, you can rest assured a visit to Rocca will live long in the memory. Come and visit us and let our passion for food become your passion for delicious dining.

Had the taster Masterchef meal and it was truly stunning. Explosions of taste in the mouth. The bone marrow infused mash was amazing. On top of that, the staff were extremely knowledgeable and attentive, even having reading glasses on hand for those who had forgotten theirs! Mr Rocca also spent time with us and was the perfect host. The Grappa... More

We had a celebratory meal here and enjoyed excellent food at a table with a wonderful view. The restaurant was busy but the level of table service was high - attentive, friendly and efficient. Each dish was beautifully presented, and a wide range of ingredients used to enhance flavour made each mouthful memorable. Two small omissions makes this review four... More

I was recently treated to our anniversary dinner at Rocca, St Andrews and it truly was a sensational meal. I dont watch Masterchef so was quite unaware of all this television hype (although i was certainly made aware as soon as i walked in which was a bit too much 'in your face) but aside that credit to the Executive...

Dinner for 8 and what a wonderful evening they created for us all ! The food was simply sensational (and not crazy money for this high level of cuisine). The professional and friendly service made us all feel so special. Fabulous views of the sun setting over the St Andrews 18th fairway right beside the restaurant and many of the... More

We visited under a special deal with an overnight stay and Jamie Scott's Masterchef menu for dinner. It was superb we had a table by the window and we watched the last golfers finishing their rounds as the sun went down.

Our meal here was excellent. It is on the higher end of creativity and service. This also creates a little more uptight atmosphere, smaller portions and artistic platings. The food and flavor combinations were very good. If you are looking for upscale this is the spot.

We had dinner here as part of our double birthday celebration but felt deflated by the experience. We are not complainers but the service was erratic. We had to ask for our first drink . The dining room was very draughty and chilly... There was an electric heater next to my chair ? The explanation about listed building status did... More

A very good eatery that dishes up traditional Scottish fare, continental cuisine, and whose specialty is Italian? Impeccable service and excellent food overlooking the 18th green of the OC - what more could one ask for? Bit fairer tariffs.
