Were invited out for a meal here, and although passed the door numerous times, this was the first time we had eaten here. Staff were courteous, informative and helpful. We dined at lunch time and ate from the lunch menu. We were not disappointed. the food was tasty, in just the right quantity, at the right pace, and we had... More

My family had the good fortune to eat at the Mustard Seed Restaurant, based on the recommendation of our host in Inverness. We found a beautifully appointed room & were served a delicious dinner. The staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. All in all, it made for a most memorable evening.

We visited the Mustard Seed in January during our stay near Inverness. A 3-course meal with a tasty white wine (pinot grigio) did not disappoint us. Rich tomato soup/grilled fish with salad + smoked haddock, salmon, and prawns in a creamy sauce with mash potato / thai style fish with rice + white chocolate tart/toffee cheesecake were all really tasty....

This is without a doubt my favourite restaurant in Inverness. It never fails to deliver. With a great location in the city centre overlooking the River Ness, great atmosphere for relaxed yet smart dining, great menu, caters for all ages and reasonably priced. If you go for the early evening menu it's even better value especially if you have kids... More

The Mustard Seed never disappoints especially for the quality of their lunch offer of their two-course lunch - totally amazing quality and standard of food for incredibly reasonable prices. Love the ambience of this restaurant, however, I would say I do enjoy being seated upstairs more - which the restaurant cannot guarantee when you book - understandably so - however... More

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.
