This is not my first review of the Rockpool but after our visit today I wanted to thank the chef and the staff for a wonderful lunch. I wanted my friend to experience this great place and she was truly impressed. We had the Rockpool club sandwich and it was delicious served with a nice side salad and tasty dressing. Then we had the Panacotta which was exceptional and served in a small jar with meringue and fresh raspberries on the side.
It is clear that the chef cares about the food he serves up and pays great attention to the presentation of his dishes The waiting staff also deserve a mention ,they are friendly and efficient and manage to keep a very busy restaurant running smoothly, well done.
The Rockpool deserves the superb reputation it has in this area of Moray and will definitely return in the future. I must mention the need to book as it gets very busy at times. Cant wait for my next visit!

“Great find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

After a walk along the beautiful beach at Cullen we popped into this delightful cafe for some refreshment. I realise now how lucky we were to get a table. The food is delicious. We both had the Cullen Skink which was thick and very tasty and served with a good chunk of bread. Other dishes being served all look equally delicious and cream tea and cakes also looked very tempting. Lovely ambience and decor and very friendly and efficient service. Highly recommend a visit.

“Great grub and cakes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

We arrived late afternoon and the cafe was full apart from one table, which was quickly cleared for us. We both ordered scampi with chips. Service was fast and friendly. We loved the presentation of the scampi and salad in a mini fryer container, with the chips served separately. It was quite delicious. Special mention must be made of the dressing on the salad. It is made on the premises and is really tasty. The cakes on display were all home baked and looked great. Would recommend this for the quality of food and friendly service.
