Very interesting menu. Very busy staff and restaurant. Very good tasting food. Pity I sat at the worst placed table. This table for 2 was right in the way of all staff who came and went to the kitchen and/or bar. Pity we didn't complain...More

Everything about this place was excellent, staff, food and ambience. It is quite expensive but you know that before you go there. Our only disappointment was a scallop starter dish which had the hot scallops placed on top of the cold fish roe and it...More

Enjoyed dining at Rocpool right near a lovely bridge in Inverness. My halibut was very good with mushrooms, spinach and beans fresh. Only negative was a little it "frantic" atmosphere by manager and staff.

I recently visited here with 5 friends on a Saturday night. We booked the table reservation months in advance as we didn't want to miss out eating here as we had heard good reviews. We travelled from Glen Coe which is nearly 2 hours away....More

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.
