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.

My daughter & I enjoyed a fabulous dinner with terrific service, fantastic food, and a lovely view of the kitchen and the riverside.

Got a table for two on the upstairs verandah overlooking the river. An entree and main for £12 or choose from the main menu for... More

This is a favourite of mine, when visiting Inverness, I was introduced to it by a 'local' many years ago. Why anyone would not want to eat would surprise me. Lovely venue, excellent food and service so central and value for money.

We were here with a group and received very good service. The food and wine selections were varied and the staff were friendly. We would definitely return to eat here if we were back in town.

I was treated to a Birthday meal at the Mustard Seed. My friends had been before and recommended that we choose there for our special evening. On arrival we were promptly shown to our table, location was not ideal as it was next to the serving station upstairs and it was very warm. When inside the surroundings and ambiance are... More
