Rocpool in Inverness is a restaurant I always visit when in the Highland capital. Delicious food, beautifully cooked and friendly service every time.
Rocpool in Inverness is one of my favourite restaurants, every visit feels like a treat. On our annual trip to the Highland capital, my husband and I always book a table for dinner. Rocpool Restaurant is located on Ness Walk, just a few minutes walk from the busy shopping centre. We regularly book a table for dinner as we always have a great meal without exception.
Since our first visit to the restaurant many years ago, we have come back many times. I believe that is the sign of a great restaurant, you keep returning. In fact having never been herself, I treated Michelle to a day trip to Inverness and lunch at Rocpool for her Birthday. I was no less disappointed with the lunch menu. Both the lunch and dinner menus have plenty options to satisfy most diners. A great selection of locally reared meat, game (venison a very popular choice with my husband) and seafood.
The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. Despite being busy, at no point do you feel rushed. Indeed I nearly always order the lemon meringue pie which is cooked to order. They state on the menu that it’s a 15 minute wait. We cannot recommend Rocpool enough for anyone visiting the city. However if planning a trip at the weekend I would highly recommend booking a table well in advance as on every visit the restaurant has been booked to capacity.
The views expressed within this review are entirely our own and based on a meal we paid for ourselves.
For another great restaurant in Inverness, try Riverhouse.
