Open since 1995, the simple cooking and warm, friendly atmosphere has allowed The Mustard Seed to become one of Inverness’s favourite restaurants. The Location on the banks of the River Ness in a converted church building is simply stunning and helps create the wonderful ambience. The transformation from disused church to restaurant created a unique space; with a double-height ceiling and magnificent open log fire. Many of the original period features were retained and combined with a mix of natural and modern finishes. The addition of the terrace on the top floor allows alfresco dining and uninterrupted views of the River, another amazing asset for the restaurant.

My wife and I went for an 'Early Bird' dinner on a Friday evening, and had a wonderful meal. The place was busy when we arrived and full when we left. The atmosphere there was lively, and the food was both well cooked and very reasonably priced. That did not really surprise us as we have been there before, but... More

Turned up without a booking and a table was quickly found, although the restaurant was very busy on a Thursday evening. All evening there was a regular turnover of tables and there was rarely one free for more than a few minutes. I had the fixed price menu - £11.95 for two courses. There was a good choice of starters... More

Went with family for Sunday lunch. Got there earlier than booking but we were seated straight away. Staff were very friendly and helpful, made us feel completely welcome and the lunch menu is very reasonably priced. Five of us had lamb, one had beef and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Our two year old loved the fries and the... More

From the minute we arived, it was an excellent experience . Every member of staff was friendly, efficient, and attentive. The food was delicious and... More

Had lunch here with husband and friends. Special lunch deal and the food was pure heaven. It was not too busy and we sat upstairs and did not feel we needed to rush out once we had meal. Staff friendly and restaurant clean.

Although we visit Inverness about once a year this was our first visit to the Mustard Seed Restaurant. I knew it had good reviews on tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. The choice of menu was varied to suit all tastes and there were a few different specials on the board. The quality of the food we had was superb.... More

I didn't know what to expect from Inverness, but this was a great surprise. I fancied pretty much everything on the menu, but settled on steak. Best I have had in years. Great choice of wine, fantastic desserts. Strongly recommended.
