Being reputed around St Andrews for having the chef who won Masterchef and generally being a very good restaurant, I will admit that all of our expectations were quite high. But we really did not expect that the actual experience would come so low in...More

This place came highly recommended by our tour company. Overpriced, incredibly slow service and very mediocre food. For starters, 4 out of 5 beef entrees were scratched and only one tap beer available as others were out until next day. We ordered our main dish...More

We had a fairly large group (12 people) and reservations in advance. Apparently there was only 1 Porterhouse in the whole restaurant. Gone before I ordered. Apparently there were no more lobster to add to a steak either. Even the remaining slim selections of steak...More

We went to Rocca for a graduation meal as it had been recommended by friends. Setting is amazing there is no doubt about that but something has happened to the food. Cost of 'special' graduation menu indicated that it should be high end but it...More

We visited this place after the previous chef, Jamie, cannot remember his surname won Masterchef the Professionals. It was superb then, goodness knows what has happened since. We had the graduation menu, it was the night before my Son's graduation, so pleased it was not...More

First impressions are good. Its a nice enough room with special views over the Old Course, Service in the restaurant itself was good, but shambolic in the bar for pre drinks. We were here for a Graduation Dinner and the food was average at best....More

We arrived for dinner with high expectations having eaten here before and having an exceptional dinner. We opted for the tasting menu this time as my partner and myself both enjoy our food and the experience a tasting menu brings. The menu also looked great....More

Went for afternoon tea and was disappointed. Sandwiches were dry and cakes the same. Lovely view but disappointing tea.

A few reviewers mentioned their disappointing afternoon tea, and I concur. The sandwiches were Tesco-lunch quality, the sweets commercial, and the scones over cooked. My jasmine tea came with a string and a bag, and the jam was from Morrison's. The view was lovely; the...More

At Rocca St Andrews our recipe for success is a fusion of exquisite food with a backdrop of one of the world's most famous sporting locations - the Old Course. Like the many champions that have graced the hallowed course, we too top the leaderboard as one of only 25 restaurants in the country with three AA Rosettes in 2013 - a reward for the creativity and passion of the Rocca family. The stunning view over the 18th means guests enjoy much more than just a delicious meal. Our menu features Scottish cooking with an Italian twist. Fresh ingredients are sourced from artisan producers either on our doorstep or in Tuscany and there is something to suit every palate. With a real pedigree in both our front-of-house and in our kitchen, you can rest assured a visit to Rocca will live long in the memory. Come and visit us and let our passion for food become your passion for delicious dining.
