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.

“Great value”
Reviewed 18 May 2014 via mobile

Early evening menu was the best value meal I've ever had! The portion was huge but the price almost too good to be true. Only around 12 gbp each for a 2 course meal in a great restaurant with great view and service. Amazing!

“Pre theatre meal”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

Had a nice pre theatre meal with good food. Loved the ability to have carafe of most wines.

Menu was imaginative and would go back if there again.

“Downhill”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

Took my husband to The Mustard Seed tonight for his birthday and for the first time we really didn't enjoy our meal. The food was bland to say the least. The wine was nice and so were the staff, as usual, but the food was definitely sub standard. There is nothing special about it any more and we won't be back.
They had a table of 24 and another of 14 plus all the other diners which takes it's toll on the food in my opinion. Pity!

“Energetic and Delicious”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

We walked in to this place on a recommendation from a friend. The place is always busy and very energetic, which is fine by me.

Our meals were delicious and well prepared. I started with a salad and has the risotto. The wine selection was also lovely.

Great location along the river!

“Lovely food, lovely setting”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

On a Saturday night, this place is busy, so you need to make reservations, unless you're lucky! The food is very good, and the waitstaff are friendly. Lots of lovely contemporary art and a happy atmosphere, as well as a great location on the River Ness, and right downtown make this a good choice.
