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.

We recently dined at Rocpool as it has a special place in our hearts. During 2009, our son proposed to his girlfriend while we were in Inverness. She said yes and we went for a celebratory dinner the next night. We have been going back ever since. Our party on this visit included a three year old, Great Grandma, my wife, and me. It is wheel chair accessible too. You will be met at the door by Steven who is one of the most endearing people you will ever meet. He immediately puts everyone at ease ant you are treated as a friend. This is not an inexpensive restaurant but is a matter of you get what you pay for. In my opinion, it is the best dining experience in Inverness. It is not the type of restaurant where you want to get in and get out. Service is well paced, top notch, and informed. It is meant to be a pleasant time and it is. All of our meals were well presented and delicious. I find it to be a comfortable place. I simply can not overstate how much we like this establishment.

At corner of River Ness bridge on Main Street--few doors from Palace Hotel on Ness Way. We had wonderful service and attention. Best lamb chops ever, fresh/delicious salads, very tasty sweet potato soup of the day. Didn't have fish but all items on menu looked wonderful. Open for lunch & dinner, closed from about 2:00-6:00 as most quality restaurants are here.
