Careful, considered, delicious combinations of the freshest food, served with flair in impressive surroundings - what's not to like. Pre-theatre good value under £20, great wine selection (try the Abruzzo), and wonderful service from well trained young people.

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.
