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 chose the Rocpool for our anniversary dinner and weren't disappointed. Great menu, excellent food, perfect atmosphere for a romantic dinner for two.

Rocpool are definitely leading the way in Food and Hospitality in the Highlands, had a great meal there a few weeks back and will return....though it will have to be an occasion, I couldn't afford to eat there every weekend

“Do try it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

This is one of my favourite places for lunch in Inverness. The food is excellent and beautifully presented, and the staff are friendly and helpful. If you take the business lunch menu (£14.95 for two courses, starter and main) there are usually three choices for each. The helpings are satisfying, but not so large that you feel you can't go back to work! It's almost always busy, so it's best to book.
