Highly recommend this place as it served stunning food with flavor and appearance. Booking is an absolutely must in the summer. Plan ahead (even by days or a week) to ensure that you get a table as the restaurant is smallish but excellent!

Had the early bird menu, food was beautifully presented and really enjoyed it. Would have loved to have come back and sampled the À La Carte menu, but only a fleeting visit to Inverness. Great gin too!

Thought we had booked Rockpool Hotel but turned out Google had given us the restaurant instead. We were not disappointed. Helpful staff contacted the hotel and cancelled out booking, then served up a delicious lunch. Excellent cuisine and delightfully presented. A good mistake.

We came in for a late dinner, and the things we wanted on the menu had already been sold out. So we asked if we could get chicken, and the wait staff let me order off the early evening (cocktail hour) menu. So we really...More

Pre-dinner menu for 4. Excellent, no stress service and the food was really good. Extensive wine list. Highly recommended- you must book in advance.

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.
