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.

“Superb in every way.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

My wife and I visited on a Tuesday and it looked like every table was full. Despite this, the staff could not have been more attentive.
The food was superb and the bill was very reasonable.
We will be back very soon, and I can't wait.

“Best Restaurant in Inverness”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

I've been a long time patron of Rocpool, and it never disappoints. The food is fantastic, service is great, really can't fault it. The must have dishes are the chorizo scallops, the venison, and a pecan pie to die for. Getting hungry thinking about it. Can't wait to go back again.

“Fine cuisine and friendly folk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

A warm welcome, good service and excellent food. The restaurant is not large but having eaten here on several occasions I would have no hesitation in recommending it. Seafood features significantly on the menu but the non fish choices are excellent also. Again friendly and welcoming staff to greet and maintain that attitude for the duration of the meal. if you like good food don't miss it!

“Disappointing !!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Went here for a midweek dinner with work last month. The service was lacking considering the prices are expensive. Tables are too close together with another persons (who was waiting to be seated) bottom entering our table space. This was very off putting. Drink list is okay and food average but should be better for the prices charged!

“Excellent value for such quality food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local while we were visiting Inverness. What a recommendation!! 2 course lunch for 14.95 - best value for quality food that you will ever come across. Managed to get in at lunchtime but if going again would definitely book as the place is filled very quickly after opening. Attentive service, good ambience, excellent food and wine - couldn't fault it.
