Rocpool is a chic, modern restaurant serving fresh Scottish food that is simply delicious. The service was attentive and welcoming. I think this was the best meal we had in Inverness.

Inverness is a lucky city to have such an excellent restaurant. The food is always stunningly good. Great ambiance, good service, lovely wines, all this and good value too. Please do not change anything. We will be back every time we are in Scotland.

I ate here three times in December. It is an excellent restaurant- never fails to impress. Steve the owner is a first class host. I’ll continue to do eat here for business and pleasure. Booking is almost essential. It is closed on Sundays.

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.
