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.

“A great meal and friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

We were recommended this restaurant on the first night we arrived in Inverness, a little late in the evening and they had no tables until after 9:00, too late for us this night! We went the next night, Monday May 20, after a very long and hectic day and were greeted with very friendly service and shown straight to our table. Plenty of time to select our meals, she had a great combination soup with cauliflower, broccoli and blue cheese, a must try, followed by the Venison, very OK! I had the Brambury Duck spring rolls followed by a spectacular steak, all cooked to perfection and lovely, a much more relaxed meal than the previous night. Nice wine and then an easy walk home over the suspension bridge. All in all a great night our and we could highly recommend this restaurant and if back will try again.

“Great restaurant in Inverness”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

We went to the Mustard Seed as my first choice for Inverness was fully booked.
The Mustard Seed was a good choice, it was very good. The food and the service was to a high standard and we had the £12 starter and main course menu. It was very reasonable and we all enjoyed the dishes. It was Scottish dishes with a twist.
A definite must when visiting Inverness!

“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Judging by the number of tables occupied this is a very popular restaurant and as far as I could tell mainly local people. The food was excellent- my mussel starter had a really good thick fish sauce and the venison main was tender and full of flavour.
Staff were friendly and efficient, Atmosphere very good despite it being so full.
Full marks I'll be back

“Made her day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

I took three friends on Saturday 18 May, one was celebrating her 83rd birthday. The staff could not have been friendlier and all wished her a Happy Birthday. The card with her photo really made her day. Thank you so much for attention to detail and really good food.
