Go to any of the great places to eat in St Andrews instead. Our cooked breakfast was cold so I wouldn't risk a more expensive meal.

Party of 10 recently - excellent meals and service. Highly recommended. The sides were great - just a hint, don't order too many as they are pretty big and there is plenty to fill you up! Will definitely go back!

Although the service was really good here the food was poor and we were really disappointed. the steaks were really fatty and the chips were tasteless. The puddings were also pretty poor. The services improved my score- other wise I would have only scored it...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.
