We enjoyed the most beautiful meal here on Saturday night. Food was outstanding and service was attentive. Wine and Champagne was very high quality and a small surprise for our anniversary was lovely. Book in advance as this restaurant is always booked out!

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.
