If you are in St. Andrews, you must have dinner at Rocca. This meal was simply fabulous from beginning to end. There were two chef items that were served complimentary and they were very tasty. We ordered the sea bass served with capers, broccilini and rock shrimp. Probably one of the best dishes I have experienced. We had a table... More

We enjoyed having dinner for two this evening. We started with complementary canopies and amuse buches. Before tasty starters and main courses. The quality of the produce was very good and so was the friendly service and staff who explained about the various items that we decided to choose. It was impressive the way the staff provided information about the... More

We have visited this restaurant previously and were absolutely delighted by the service and the quality of the food. I couldn't wait to return. Oh how very disappointing. The food was cold, menu was not great and the restaurant manager was not only uninterested but I would say verging on the side of being rude, and not just to us.... More

Food is good but the selection for lunch not great. No choice for vegans or pescatarians. Staff very friendly and helpful. Price reasonable for the quality of food. Ambience good, slightly tired.

We ate on Thursday evening. Restaurant was pleasingly busy. I am glad we ordered the "flight of wines" to accompany the food, we had a voucher from Itison at £99 for two,as it made the evening a reasonable price. Food was very good but a taste only of each item. Started with a very tasty Ballotine of pig cheek with... More

Although staff are friendly there was a general feel of them being poorly trained and lacking any kind of initiative. We dined in Rocca Restaurant, and although the food was lovely, the service was slow and badly organised - they forgot to give us bread rolls, forgot to bring us water etc. On arrival in the bar, we sat at...

We went to Rocca for their tasting menu, which we'd bought half price via itison. We also paid extra for the matching wines. I was a little apprehensive having read a few bad reviews the day before but I have to say, there was nothing to worry about. Liam guided us through the food and matching wines, which we thoroughly... More

We were given the Tasting Menu as a gift...what a HUGE disappointment! I actually have nothing nice to say about any of it unfortunately. Reception and restaurant was cold. Food bland and exceptionally overpriced for what it was. We have been before, a few years ago and have fond memories. What a pity that that will be overcast by our... More

We were fortunate enough to be seated at a window with fine views of the golf course and the sea. First class, friendly service. High quality food and wine

Quality of food was excellent, with additional "amuse bouche" courses. Very well presented and well cooked. The waiter was very knowledgeable about the wines and helpful in making choices. The only minor complaint was that the room was a bit chilly, but mid week February in Scotland it is perhaps to be expected!

Thank Dave D

At Rocca St Andrews our recipe for success is a fusion of exquisite food with a backdrop of one of the world's most famous sporting locations - the Old Course. Like the many champions that have graced the hallowed course, we too top the leaderboard as one of only 25 restaurants in the country with three AA Rosettes in 2013 - a reward for the creativity and passion of the Rocca family. The stunning view over the 18th means guests enjoy much more than just a delicious meal. Our menu features Scottish cooking with an Italian twist. Fresh ingredients are sourced from artisan producers either on our doorstep or in Tuscany and there is something to suit every palate. With a real pedigree in both our front-of-house and in our kitchen, you can rest assured a visit to Rocca will live long in the memory. Come and visit us and let our passion for food become your passion for delicious dining.
