Description: 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.

Brilliant early evening menu deal that didn't compromise on quality or quantity. The food was fantastic and a great selection on the wine menu. Lovely decor, with real fire and fantastic waiting staff.

The Restaurant is very well frequented: you need to be early or make a reservation. Service was very fast and extremely friendly although it was very busy. The food is very tasty.

We reserved our places here, which turned out to be a good idea, as the place was quite full. It was very hot at first, since we sat next the heating, but it was not a problem when we'd turned that off. For starters, we had shetland mussels, which were excellent: soft, with much flavour. Mains were beef wellington and... More

There by recommendation, and not disappointed. Lovely venue, attentive but not obsequious staff, and wonderful food and wine at a price that does not scare you. What more can you ask and it is city centre.

Despite it being a very busy Friday evening (I'm glad we booked) the staff were friendly, attentive and welcoming and the food was excellent. Service was brilliant,... More
