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 were so lucky to secure a reservation at this very popular bistro. Recommended very highly from the owner of our hotel in Pitlochry, we emailed right away. A prompt response was received and we landed a 5:45 reservation. Although we were a bit concerned about the early time, it ended suiting us perfectly. We were told the table was ours "until 7:40" which is not uncommon at many of the restaurants here. However, we never felt rushed and had plenty of time to savor the delicious foods! Between 5:45 and 6:45, they offer a special price, 2 course menu and the selections were varied! My linguine with pancetta as a starter could've easily been my whole meal! My husband loved his spiced sweet potato soup! I loved my sea bream and shrimp on risotto and my husband said the roast hake with chorizo and soft poached egg was amazing! With all this food we still found room to share the sticky toffee pudding with pecans and vanilla ice cream for dessert! The entire staff, as well as the owner, made us feel so welcome and appreciated, with many of them spending time in conversation with us. Special thanks to the owner for making our anniversary celebration so very special!!

Great food and service. Located perfectly in the center by the river. Good value for the money, and nice atmosphere

Was the restaurant of choice when visiting Inverness and didn't disappoint. Beautifully presented food from a varied menu. Staff were enthusiastic and friendly without being overly pushy. Wine by the glass was 175ml only, slightly disappointing. Be sure to book to avoid being turned away. Be prepared to dig deep.

We enjoyed the most beautiful meal here on Saturday night. Food was outstanding and service was attentive. Wine and Champagne was very high quality and a small surprise for our anniversary was lovely. Book in advance as this restaurant is always booked out!
