if the food is good or bad. Inverness' "premier restaurant" misplaced our booking. That's ok, of course, we only made it twice: once by email, once by phone. I had chosen this place because of the reviews, and because it was 3 doors along from our hotel (the Columba at 7 Ness Walk). This fact made it all the more irritating when the stupendously condescending waiter (or did he see himself as maitre de?) told me I had probably booked "the other Rocpool restaurant" - that would be the other one with the same address, same front door pictured on the website, and the same menu. Yes, yes of course it would.
On arrival, we noticed the staff hastily preparing a long table for a large group, but it would seem to me rude to imply that this had anything to do with our mysteriously misplaced booking; so I shan't. What I will say though is that all things seem to happen for a reason, and the reason we were so shoddily treated by the Rocpool was so that we could discover the wonderful Mustard Seed restaurant a few hundred yards along on the other side of the river. That I'll review separately, but for now suffice it to say that it provided a perfect antidote to this crappy experience.
