Service was slow and not professional. Food was mediocre. Would recommend eating at one of the good restaurants in town.

Visited Rocca restaurant with some friends for dinner and left disappointed. Overall the atmosphere was sad, like an episode from Gordon Ramsey. Service was slow, inattentive and seemingly disinterested. If the place had been full I would be understanding. Sadly, the restaurant was mostly empty...More

This place came highly recommended by our tour company. Overpriced, incredibly slow service and very mediocre food. For starters, 4 out of 5 beef entrees were scratched and only one tap beer available as others were out until next day. We ordered our main dish...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.
