We were given the Tasting Menu as a gift...what a HUGE disappointment! I actually have nothing nice to say about any of it unfortunately. Reception and restaurant was cold. Food bland and exceptionally overpriced for what it was. We have been before, a few years ago and have fond memories. What a pity that that will be overcast by our... More

We were fortunate enough to be seated at a window with fine views of the golf course and the sea. First class, friendly service. High quality food and wine

Quality of food was excellent, with additional "amuse bouche" courses. Very well presented and well cooked. The waiter was very knowledgeable about the wines and helpful in making choices. The only minor complaint was that the room was a bit chilly, but mid week February in Scotland it is perhaps to be expected!

My wife and I ate here last night and we were very impressed. We had a reservation and we were taken to our table at the window overlooking the final hole and clubhouse of the Royal and Ancient Golf Course. We had a discount voucher for the 5 course tasting menu therefore it was a set menu. The service was... More

I was completely blown away with the quality of food I was served. The Soufflé was light, flavoursome and fluffy. The Monkfish was the best fish dish I have ever tasted, the flavours complimented each other so well. What a fabulous dining experience! Staff were brilliant and I couldn't fault anything. I hope to return soon.

Visited with a couple of friends for the tasting menu with paired wines. The food was exceptional, as were the matched wines. The sommelier/restaurant manager was very knowledgeable and we were extremely well looked after. Two tiny downsides. We had a great table in the bay window looking over the 18th towards the R&A building, but it was a little... More

At Rocca St Andrews our recipe for success is a fusion of exquisite food with a backdrop of one of the world's most famous sporting locations - the Old Course. Like the many champions that have graced the hallowed course, we too top the leaderboard as one of only 25 restaurants in the country with three AA Rosettes in 2013 - a reward for the creativity and passion of the Rocca family. The stunning view over the 18th means guests enjoy much more than just a delicious meal. Our menu features Scottish cooking with an Italian twist. Fresh ingredients are sourced from artisan producers either on our doorstep or in Tuscany and there is something to suit every palate. With a real pedigree in both our front-of-house and in our kitchen, you can rest assured a visit to Rocca will live long in the memory. Come and visit us and let our passion for food become your passion for delicious dining.
