Review on Rocpool

Named after a famous Sydney restaurant, this fizzy brasserie on the west bank of the Ness sees itself as 'wildly delicious and deeply satisfying'. It's certainly a shot of metropolitan adrenaline as far as Inverness is concerned.

Rocpool is unashamedly hot and energetic, with 'dishy' décor, orange and indigo colour schemes, and an atmosphere that goes straight for the senses. The kitchen aims high and the menu jets through the brasserie repertoire, picking up Italian meatballs with tomato sauce and golden polenta, seared scallops with black pudding and a sweet lemon grass/chilli dressing, grilled fillets of sea bream with curried prawn risotto, and chicken Kiev with buttered asparagus and crispy roast potatoes.

There are fish specials on Friday (perhaps a salad of shelled West Coast langoustines with fresh pineapple or pan-fried skate wing with courgette fritters) plus desserts such as lemon posset with raspberries or passion fruit Pavlova. Rocpool also functions as an all-day tapas joint.
