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.

This place was suggested by a friend, and I have to admit I am due him a big drink to say thanks. The staff are very friendly and extremely attentive but not in an overbearing way. The food is excellent and comes out in a good time and is clearly prepared to order. The best thing of all is the price £7.95 for 2 course lunch, amazing value for what we got. The paprika and cumin chicken breast is excellent. Will defiantely be back.

This restaurant is highly rated and you can see why. It's in a beautiful old building by the river, on 2 levels. The basic menu is fairly short (usually implies freshly cooked food) and their are interesting specials. We had the mussels to start and they were delicious in an oriental type sauce. Mains (venison and duck) were cooked to perfection and we shared a cheeseboard afterwards - all beautifully presented with substance as well as show. Our maion waitress (who was from Poland) was very friendly and helpful and couldn't have been more attentive. I think this is the first place we've been in where we were offered a sample of the wine of the month before we made a choice. It happens in pubs with beer, but not usually in restaurants in my experience.

The place was buzzing. If you hadn't booked you couldn't get a table. This place has a well deserved reputation. I hope they maintain it, because next time I'm in Inverness I plan to go there again.

Cannot see past this restaurant in Inverness. Love it!! The pre-theatre menu is great value & has plenty options before even tackling the specials chalkboards & dinner menu! Went to Rocpool for lunch the day before & thought that the Mustard Seed could be a disappointment so was worried as I had chosen this one, no reason to worry, met all (very high) expectations. Funky & relaxed atmosphere, makes everyone feel at home! A meal here is a must!

Very friendly and efficient staff and tasty food. Although it is more upscale it is still child-friendly. Well worth stopping in for dinner.
