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.

This is the second restaurant on our tour that we cannot fault at all. We booked luckily as they were turning people away. We had the early evening menu and WOW is the only thing i can say. We live 450 miles away and I'd love to eat there every week. Nothing to fault, staff, service, food, drinks... read more

I go here with business colleagues & Clients regularly & I keep going back because, without fail, they always have good service with tasty food. Sitting near the fire in the winter is a bonus too. Guaranteed good food, but book in advance for weekend evening meals or you'll be disappointed.

Meal great and service even better. The young man who recommended the wine was very helpful and took the time out to speak to my wife. I do wish they wouldn't play jazz as background music.

We were very pleased to be recommended to go to the mustard seed by 2 separate people who had been there previously and assured us to book a table. The restaurant is situated in a lovely old building (a church I think) on the riverside in Inverness. The food is very locally based and was all great produce. We really... More
