A menu where one could pick so much. Every dish superbly balanced and well presented. A sensible wine list, good service and a fair price.

Had an amazing time when we visited... from the moment we walked through the door the service was faultless, and the food was delicious. Would definitely recommend a visit to this restaurant, and we will be back next time we are in Inverness.

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.
