Rocpool Restaurant

Wonderful food, a real emphasis on using quality Scottish produce, top-class wines, classy décor, friendly staff, great service and rather splendid cocktails –  our firm favourite in Inverness. Tel: +44 (0) 1463 717274

The Mustard Seed

We love the food (especially the desserts), very professional and friendly staff and a wonderful building with a cosy ambience even although the ceilings are so high! Watch the chefs cooking your food from your seat in the restaurant. For the cold nights, there is a huge wood-burning stove, for the sunny nights, there’s a riverside balcony.

McBains by the River

McBains is becoming a real favourite of ours.  It has an enviable location, right on the river bank with a very relaxing ambience. It's a husband and wife team offering amazing food, using the finest Scottish ingredients to create great dishes and excellent, friendly service too.  And the cheesecake is the best we have ever tasted.

The best restaurant for the finest fish and Scottish Seafood in Inverness.  Sit and eat the freshest Scottish oysters, overlooking the river. With a great selection of wines, lovely staff and relaxing ambience, it’s a must. Tel:  +44 (0) 1463 222033

An image of the interior of the Kitchen Brasserie in Inverness. Glass fronted room, overlooking the River Ness, a few tables inside and some outside on balcony. Very sunny and buildings on the opposite side of the river are shown.

The Kitchen Brasserie

Sister restaurant of The Mustard Seed but a very different ambience – very modern, contemporary décor with the best views over the river.  It’s a brasserie so offers a more informal menu. Tel:  +44 (0) 1463 259119
