Rocpool is a must visit in Inverness! They use super fresh local ingredients, so their dishes have clean seasonal flavors. My husband absolutely loved his lamb dish.

Had another amazing meal in Rocpool last night. My family and I came for my birthday, and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating. I'm heavily pregnant, and so not to miss out on the toast, they made me a lovely "mocktail", which was delicious!...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.
