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.

My wife and I had dinner here last night and it was superb. Great service with friendly staff. The menu and wine list choice was good. I had the Cullen skink to start with.

Food is delicious, service friendly and efficient and a great atmosphere. I'm surprised it isn't ranked number one in Inverness as it certainly deserves it! Try it, you will love it!

Booked into this restaurant while on a weekend break, what a treat. The restaurant was full but the staff were still friendly and efficient. Food was amazing, the monkfish and prawns were bursting with flavour and the calves liver was moist and tasty. Would definitely return when next in Inverness

Great food, great atmosphere. The value for money is spectacular! You would pay a lot more for a lot less in other less impressive restraunts!

Fantastic choice of foods. I had delicious scallops followed by monkfish . Food was excellent and would definitely return . Wines are a bit pricey but a good selection so you get what you pay for . Would be my first choice if eating in Inverness

A wet Monday night but warm friendly atmosphere fantastic food and good service. The place was packed we hadn't booked but they squeezed us in and treated us like royalty. You must make this place "the place to go" just remember to book!!

Started with scallops which were presented on scallops shells followed by venison cooked to perfection. followed by a mini lemon meringue pie. Fabulous. The best restaurant in Inverness.

Amazing as always. Always get great service here. Although disappointed that the 'main man' wasn't here tonight as he always remembers us despite the fact we only visit once or twice per year because we live 500 miles away. Love this place.
