When we booked this visit,in person, the reception was lukewarm. On the day of the meal we were met with the same reception. However the person taking us to the table was very pleasant. The young staff are busy but perhaps could do with more training. The food was okay. We all left with the same opinion..could do better!

Dinner for two on Friday past. Excellent food and service. Smoked duck starter was really good. The thai mussels were delicious. Pork belly was delicious. The veggie Wellington was also very tasty but quite big. We have never been let down here.

We came to Inverness for an end of year break and my partners Birthday! I made a reservation early in the week, noting the reviews said book early and in doing so was rewarded with a table overlooking the water as requested. The staff were nothing but amazing and our waitress looked after us all night. We had mussels and... More

Having been given gift vouchers from dear friends to visit this restaurant, we decided to add it to the two night stay we had booked in Inverness. The riverside situation meant we were off to a good start. We had read some recent reviews and were rather apprehensive at the negative comments we'd seen. From entering through the doors we...

We went with 4 friends, ordered 2 mussels as starters and then 2 venison steaks and 2 dick breasts and red wine. Spent around £100 all together. Meat were perfectly cooked and mussels were just great. If we'll come to Inverness again, we'll go there.

Simply a superb place to eat with the food being prepared fresh and serviced in a friendly manner. In truth rarely have I had better. Will definitely make this a place to come back too.

We arrived at the restaurant at 8:00pm on a Monday evening on the off chance of a table. We hadn't booked as we had only just had a recommendation from one of the bars we had visited. We were asked to wait for a few moments and within 5 minutes we had a lovely table upstairs. The staff were extremely... 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.
