Very fine dining experience with great staff and fabulous food. Not stuffy but not casual. I would rate this as highly as the Number One restaurant in the Balmoral Hotel in Edinburgh, but at half the price. Well worth a visit for serious foodies in the area or for a special night out that you will remember.

Great food with exquisite presentation, in an attractive and relaxing environment. The perfect place for a very special meal. We had the RouXpress menu which consists of four small courses served simultaneously and this is a good way to taste a wide variety of dishes at a reasonable price.

Chez Roux is just what you would expect from a restaurant that the Roux family would put their name to. The ambiance is perfect for a romantic dinner out. The service was impeccable and friendly, and the food was beyond our expectations. We were told to arrive 30 minutes prior to our dining time. We ordered a couple of drinks... More

Unfortunately, I am not the easiest of customers to feed, with a list of allergies and intolerances that usually sees me with the plainest option possible - or missing out entirely - when restaurants are booked. However, as guests at the Rocpool, it was easy to provide the restaurant with all of my information prior to our meal, and the... More

5 of us visited chez roux on Friday afternoon for our work Xmas lunch outing. Superlatives wouldn't do the experience justice, everything was perfect from start to finish! The service was impeccable, the atmosphere refined and comfortable and the food was out of this world. Dishes we had included the divine cheese soufflé, the bisque, pheasant and the assiette of...

Me and my fiance decided on Chez Roux when picking a restaraunt to celebrate my birthday on a recent trip to Inverness, and from start to finish we were delighted. The best part of what Chez Roux offer is the experiental side of things. From arriving at least 30 minutes before seating to enjoy a drink in their bar (the... More

Ironically enough, we had wanted to eat La Gavroche while in London, but could not get a table. To be lucky enough to book a table with Chef Roux was a coup. This 5 star menu with 5 star service in a beautiful, comfortable setting (if a little over the top with the artwork, cartoons and references to Albert Roux... More

An impromptu visit from a friend led to him wanting to go for dinner on a Sunday evening, so as he's a keen foodie there was only one real option in inverness: Chez Roux at rocpool reserve! The amuse-bouches were delightful, and set the scene for what was to follow. We both opted for the veal sweetbreads for starter, and... More

From the quirky canapes to the lamb or the souffle or the soup (it goes by a fancy name) to the salmon or just about anything on the menu, outstanding. The wine list is not extensive, but more than adequate, we don't drink much, so experts may disagree here. The service is perfectly balanced, professional, polite, but also friendly. Five... More

Excellent service, unique and nicely prepared food, very pleasant room. Fine selection of Scottish and continental foods. Decent wine list. The bar does a fine martini.
