2nd visit in a year and made a point of returning after our first visit was a success. One of us had the pigeon, followed by the venison. The other carpaccio followed by the John Dory. Both were fantastic and would highly recommend. Staff were attentive and made sure we were looked after. Looking forward to visit number 3.

I have never had anything but a great meal here. The food is always superb quality and they are very creative in the way they put dishes together. The staff are friendly and efficient and it's got a great atmosphere. I'd suggest booking - it can be hard to get a table at certain times. The fish and seafood are... More

Enjoyed an excellent meal. Service was spot on and the food was excellent. On arrival, there was a sign on the door saying the place was fully booked, and it's easy to see why. Having been offered to take our coats, we were swiftly shown to our seats. The design of the place is clever, as it allows the waiters... More

This is an amazing restaurant that I could not praise highly enough. The food was some of the best I have ever tasted (I had venison) and the staff were very accommodating and friendly.

I went to this restaurant eight years ago and wanted to return because I thought it was such a great experience. I recently went back for lunch and the expectations were met once again. Fantastic gourmet food at reasonable prices - I would love to return again!

Came here yesterday night after being recommended by a chef who works at another establishment. On arrival our coats were taken and we received friendly banter from the gentlemen at front of house. Once seated my husband and I took in the relaxing and romantic surroundings, and looked through the delishes menu. It was such a struggle to pick as... More

We were in for a pre theatre dinner and there was a great choice on the menu. The dishes are presented beautifully and the combination of flavours were exquisite. This was a... More

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.
