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 ate at this restaurant, the menu was very interesting and it was refreshing to be offered a menu which was different to the usual dishes. I am usually a plain eater but I loved the food and would definitely eat there again. Book early though as it is a very popular restaurant.

Very friendly and attentive service, which made us feel very welcome despite not having a reservation. The menu itself is very varied and the food incredibly fresh, accompanied by a fantastic wine list. My only one criticism would be that £15.95 for a two course lunch is perhaps a little expensive, especially when compared with other offers in the town... More

Really pleased I picked this for my hubby's birthday meal, staff were attentive but not OTT, food was fantastic and the drinks hit the spot. Would definitely pick this one again, tried other restaurants in the same price range and nothing delivered the quality of this one.

I came here with my dad and my brother. Got busy quickly which is a good sign, reccommend booking as it seems very popular. We all had beautiful food and nice wine. Very nice experience.

Excellent place for lunch in Inverness, but make sure you book as it is very popular. The Venison with Black Pudding was perfectly cooked and a delight.
