Description: 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.

We stayed just a few doors away and walked past and read the menu It looked very inspiring so we came back for the early dinner. One of the best meals we have had during our holiday I would say it was worth the money and some. Definitely recommend this place

Such a shame I couldn't give it a 5 but I'll explain my reasons later in my review. I did struggle to make this decision as in most areas it was top notch. We went there for an evening meal, we hadn't booked a table but were greeted by friendly helpful staff and shown to a booth. We ordered drinks... More

This seems to be the top restaurant in Inverness. Initial impressions were promising with very welcoming and helpful staff with a nice 'feel' to the place. It was also busy (Thursday night) which is always a good sign, but we were surprised that when booking the table it seemed to be closing at 930pm?! The food was very good if... More

Had the three course Christmas Lunch with some friends and although initially we thought it was quite expensive it was worth every penny. Beautifully cooked and presented and the dessert I had was delicious, icecream with popcorn, candy and chocolate sauce. All very yummy!! The staff were all very pleasant and attentive, really could not fault it.

Returned here for a lunch recently with work colleagues. We were quite early, about 1220 and were the first in I think and the restaurant was a a tad cold; half an hour later the place was jumping and the central heating had kicked in, which was fine. Rocpool is reliably good. It's got an little elegance and sophistication that... More
