We visited on a Saturday for lunch our 2nd visit and it was as god as the last time. Starter I had was amazing Scallops with chorizo. Main course was very well presented and nice. Expensive but you get what you pay for.

This was my second time at Rocpool and it was just as good as the first time I went. By far my favourite restaurant in Inverness. Great service and great food. Be sure to book well in advance.

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.
