I'm sure I would have enjoyed my meal much better if we were not limited with our dinner choices. The service was very good. My meal was good but could have used a tweak of two.

A number of friends had recommended trying to get a table during our Inverness visit, so we booked for dinner with a couple of days notice. The restaurant seemed full when others nearby were not. We had a table upstairs, with a view across the...More

Local restaurant with an upscale flair. Serves various dishes on a menu that's dependent on availability of local produce. Stresses heavily on supporting local farms by serving their produce, and with great results. Tasty food with careful and artistic presentation. Early dinner special from 5:30-7:00...More

The Mustard Seed has a special early evening meal deal from 5.30-7.00 and it's well worth it! Beautiful food and a great variety of wines, very friendly service and a great atmosphere. I highly recommend pre-booking!

Highly recommend this place both for the food and atmosphere. Make a booking as it gets very busy during the tourist season. This is one of two "sister" restaurants in Inverness, the other across the river. The ambiance of the Mustard Seed is open and...More

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.
