On our recent visit to Rocca we did the tasting menu and it was out of this world. On a par if not better than the many Michelin starred restaurants that we've eaten in locally and in Edinburgh. The tasting menu was exciting, and perfectly...More

Our trip to St Andrews in mid-January was for the express purpose of sampling the cuisine at the Rusacks Rocca restaurant. We had been so impressed by the talents of Masterchef winner, Jamie Scott and were anxious to discover if his food tasted as good...More

We had a table booked for dinner mid-week. Although it was out of season, the restaurant (or that portion of it which was open) was full. We were given plenty of time to make our choices from the menu, and then it was some time...More

We had a great meal at Rocca, the food was excellent, the staff were welcoming and engaging and the surroundings were classy, but comfortable. The new found celebrity status of the chef is well deserved, but the food and service speak for themselves, and this...More

We had the three course Masterchef menu for £25 and it was fantastic, both in taste and in value. Would definitely recommend it.

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.
