This is an amazing restaurant that I could not praise highly enough. The food was some of the best I have ever tasted (I had venison) and the staff were very accommodating and friendly.

I went to this restaurant eight years ago and wanted to return because I thought it was such a great experience. I recently went back for lunch and the expectations were met once again. Fantastic gourmet food at reasonable prices - I would love to return again!

Came here yesterday night after being recommended by a chef who works at another establishment. On arrival our coats were taken and we received friendly banter from the gentlemen at front of house. Once seated my husband and I took in the relaxing and romantic surroundings, and looked through the delishes menu. It was such a struggle to pick as... More

Visited on a Saturday night- the restaurant was full but we were seated as soon as we arrived. Staff were very attentive and had time to chat to you - which is nice. Starters and main courses were fantastic, food never disappoints at this popular highland restaurant.

First off, make a reservation. Spent 2 nights in Inverness after hiking the Great Glen Way and Rocpool was our favorite restaurant. Attentive staff, good wine list and fresh food that was cooked to perfection. Oh, and the service was excellent without being intrusive. An excellent night without having to think about it at the time.

All the focus is on the food here. Beautiful, quality ingredients cooked to a very high standard. We had to book a fair bit in advance but it was worth the wait and the expense. A lovely dining experience.

Thank KarenB1708

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.
