We were so excited to visit this place after reading the reviews. The decor and staff make the place seem 5 star. But the atmosphere and “just alright” food let the place down. Unfortunately we were not wowed like we thought we would be. We...More

Had a family dinner here recently. It is difficult to find any fault here - professional staff, great food and wine, nice ambience. Even the little touches like subdued lighting and a thick curtain over the inner door to keep the Highland winter out. Yes...More

Recommend by a friend and not disappointed . Excellent service. Extensive menus well presented. Wine a bit pricey. I would advice don't go too hungry this is an experience rather than a hunger satisfying restaurant. Very impressed and would return.

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.
