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.

Such great food in the evening. Food was excellent, service quick without being at all pushy! Had a great time with friends and if ever back in Inverness will definitely be back! Worth it all round, even though expensive.

Absolutely delicious fresh local fish and game served in abundant portions by friendly staff. The atmosphere is high-end dining without being snooty. The Rocpool is proof that Inverness is a secret hotbed of amazing culinary talent. We arrived without a reservation, and even though the place was packed (you probably should make a reservation if possible), the staff managed to... More
