We had booked a table 4 weeks before we arrived from the USA on line with an email, and received confirmation in 24 hours. Do not try to walk in expecting a table, because it is one of the best restaurants in Inverness. The service...More

If you are looking for a cheap night out, go to a pub. It is not massively expensive though. The food is good and the wine selection should meet most pallets. The staff look after you... If you want nice views over the river, you...More

I have lived in the area since 1970 and Inverness was not known for fine dining for an age. We came to Rocpool on the recommendation of a gourmand friend and we were not disappointed. The menu alone gets you going! It has some interesting...More

We visited quite early so was able to enjoy the early menu deal. The food was tasty and the service was faltless. Worth a visit if you are in Inverness and you have a celebration or just to treat yourself.

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.
