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.

“delicious food, great staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

the food was excellent and the staff treated us like guests. I even got one of the waitresses to allow me to photograph her lovely, angle-face for a painting I'm working on. I hope they don't tease her!

“Mixed experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

We enjoyed the food very much but found the service awkward and self-important. We left well fed but irritated.

“Lives up to its reputation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

Saturday night in Inverness and oh so happy I had booked in advance as all tables were taken. Smooth operation with efficient turnover of tables. fair mix of couples, parties and families. Good menu with a fair amount of specials on offer leaning towards fish and seafood. Very disappointing to learn that the last beef wellington had just been sold ( it passed by on its way out and it looked great) We had halibut in a butter sauce and a ribeye steak following on from breads and olives and a pear, rocket and parmegano salad. Whilst this doesn't sound overly exciting, it really was top quality. Top quality ingredients and top quality cooking. First visit here and actually preferred it to the Rocpool, I think you might too.

“World class”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

This is an absolutely perfect restaurant! The owner of a B&B several miles from Inverness recommended it as having really great food, which it does, but the service is also over the top as well as the beautiful view of River Ness from the upstairs dining area. Not too expensive either. Presentation of every dish, desserts included is outstanding.
