We had a lovely dinner here. Reservations a must! Atmosphere so pleasant. Staff attentive. Very accommodating of dietary needs. Prices very reasonable for fine food and great wine. Enjoyed a peaceful meal without feeling rushed.

We were lucky enough to get a seat in this restaurant and it did not disappoint. We were greeted at the door by a very pleasant young man who took our coats and seated us. Although he took our order, all the other employees helped...More

It was a wet night. Rockpool was close to our B&B and recommended by it. The atmosphere was that of a crowded and jolly pub full of wet and steaming people. Endless horse races went on on the big TV above our table. Our culinary...More

We came here after seeing the raving reviews, but were a bit disappointed. The menu felt underwhelming, with very poor presentation (instead of naming a food, they just present you with three lines of ingredients), and the prices are above average. Although the food was...More

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.
