We live locally and eat out regularly. Without doubt this is the best place to eat in Inverness. It's not cheap but not crazy either so give it a try. Book early as it's hard to get a table..

Went with friends. Note you have to book well in advance. Staff excellent, food good, drinks good, but overall pricey for what you get. AP. NI

I dined here on a Monday night with work colleagues - and the place was full. In fact, a few people I spoke to afterwards were surprised we even managed to get a table at all. The experience was great, from the start, we were...More

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.
