Nicely located on the River Ness in a converted church with a designer interior, the Mustard Seed is one of the better quality restaurants in Inverness. They offer a good pre-theatre early evening menu before 7pm for £13.95 two courses. This menu changes every week or two but is cosmopolitan and varied. It's popular but I've always managed to walk...

I knew this place would be busy as I have tried to get a table before after hearing good reviews by friends. Thankfully we were lucky by waiting a few minutes we were able to get a table after just turning up last minute. I did not expect to get a table. So glad we did! Could not fault this... More

Having eaten at the Mustard seed a number of times and really enjoyed our meal, I was very disappointed last night. The food was ok although one plate of food was cold by the time it reached the table and was replaced. But by that time we had waited over 45 minutes for our main courses with no apology or... More

Fantastic meal. Lovely and polite waitresses. Very reasonably priced house wine which was extremely drinkable! I had asparagus starter which was absolutely off the usual path for me. The honey dressing was subtle and not over sickly sweet. The braised beef cheeks were sublime. Rich, melt-in-the-mouth and divine! The only down point was the cheesecake was changed and the passion... More

Very nice meal and fairly reasonably priced. However, veg portions served separately from main dishes, far too little provided for the amount of people. Asked for a little extra veg and was charged for this which seems excessive.

After a lengthy period of absence we decided to try lunch once more in this restaurant. A disappointing visit. My first cappuccino was lukewarm and overpriced for the small cup. We both settled for the black pudding starter but why did we have to pay a supplement. It certainly wasn't for the apple. This was a wafer thin slice which... More

Went there last night, really lovely. We both went for the early evening menu and both opted for smoked mackerel followed by venison casserole washed down with a bottle of red wine. As always the service was good as was the atmosphere. The food was good but I make a better venison casserole.

The food here is great . Great place to eat I would definitely recommend eat here and try and get a seat upstairs next to window so you can enjoy the views of the river. Service was excellent. I woukd say this is one of the best meals I've ever had in a long time. If you are planning on... More

The food was really good but it seems to me the reputation of this place is a little overrated because the quality of the service was not matching the meals.

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.
