Made a reservation weeks ago after reading so many positive reviews on TripAdvisor. But the food was disappointing. We ordered a pot of mussels as starter. Mussels were fresh and succulent. Salty but we thought it was still acceptable. Then came our main courses. We had the lamb rump, cod and Thai curry with steamed basmati rice. The lamb was... More

Midweek early evening birthday meal with son. A really tough day at work telling people dire news, I wasn't looking forward to this meal. The waitress was charming, the service quick and efficient, the food was, well, just delicious and to my surprise we left all having really enjoyed the experience. So, thank you, Mustard Seed for turning around my... More

Food was good and at times very good. Service was good but could have been better but I'm raging at getting charged 75p for a splash of lime in my sparkling water. It's like a kick in the teeth for a designated driver. Asda sell mivadi for a pound a litre. I could have had a 2 and 1/4 likes... More

Whenever I'm in Inverness I always go to the mustard seed for lunch! It is such good value for money with the lunch menu at only £9.95 for two courses. The menu is lovely, I opted for white pudding as a starter and rump steak as my main. My mum had the watermelon salad and then the hake. The dishes... More

I absolutely loved the restaurant. Everything on the menu sounded delicious, I wanted to try everything, but stopped on venison and my boyfriend chose steak with haggis on top. The food was great, fresh, delicious and well-presented. The staff is nice and friendly, they managed to squeeze us in even though we didn't book a table in advance. That was... More

The food was delicious and the restaurant itself is very cozy. It is right on the water and while we only spent one cold night in Inverness, I can imagine it is lovely to look out onto the river during the day.

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.
