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.

“Good food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

I have dined here on several occasions and have mostly found it to be a good place for good food, if overpriced in my view. The service is always good and the music is super. In winter there is always a roaring fire. I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to anyone thinking of trying it.

“Excellent food for a great price!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

The Mustard Seed do an AMAZING lunch time menu for a ridiculously low price. The food is excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful. Id highly recommend here for something to eat if you are visiting Inverness, just make sure you phone ahead first to book a table as its very rare to walk in off the street and find one available!

It is little wonder the Mustard Seed is so difficult to get a reservation for-it is amazing.
In a hurry and had set menu-could not be faulted in any way.Food amazing and served quickly with a smile.
