Beautiful food .... Dressed crab starter was so fresh . Excellent service always . Did find sitting close to bar very noisy due to sound of bar service/ glasses / coffee machine Will only return if seated elsewhere.

Visited on Saturday 4th March for my wife's birthday! I am not going to go too deeply into the food detail but I just want to reiterate my review from two years previous... This is literally the best Inverness has. Yes some things are slightly annoying - the head waiter taking my phone off me at the table was irritating... More

We love this place. The food is ALWAYS top notch. Even meals for people with multiple food intolerances are tasty and beautifully presented (Thanks to Steven). OUT OF THIS WORLD.

Fabulous food. I had the cream of mushroom soup and it was the best I've ever eaten. Great Chardonnay and fish. Elegant presentations. Friendly service.

I visit Rocpool fairly regularly and the dining experience is always superb! I was there most recently last Saturday when I took a friend for a birthday lunch and as always the menu was fantastic with lots of choice. We both thoroughly enjoyed our respective meals. One never feels rushed there, and it was lovely to end our visit by... More

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.

Thank mc912016

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.
