Booked for lunch with family/friends. Easy to find as in central Inverness. Lovely restaurant, speedy service, friendly staff and beautiful food. Highly recommend to everyone.

Went for a meal with family a few weeks ago, this was my first time at the Mustard Seed. The service and food were both amazing, so much so that we have booked our wedding meal there!

My last review of the Mustard Seed criticised it for reducing portion sizes whilst trying to maintain good value prices. I am delighted on my most recent visit to report that the portion sizes are healthy and the restaurant still offers excellent value for money. Staff are very friendly and they certainly remember returning customers. Service was fast and efficient... More

Good food, salmon main course was excellent. Unfortunately we arrived just as staff was finishing up dealing with a large party there to celebrate Christmas. Our service was slow and dinner took some time to come from the kitchen as a result. This may not be normal. It was cozy and pleasant after walking in the cold rain to get... More

Nice dinner out with lots of good selection of menu items. Not really a family dining restaurant. Great fish and local food selection.

My wife and I dined here again on Friday past. From the baked camembert, posh prawn cocktail to the oven baked cod, duck, dark chocolate tart and biscuits and cheese all really good. Great staff too.

Had dinner here on a Friday night, food was delicious and service was also great. The whole experience was tainted by the food being served on Plates that were dirty on the backs. Staff and manager were very apologetic and sorted the issue quickly. More than happy to try this restaurant again and will update the review when I do

About 20 of us went for a meal, the staff coped very well in taking our orders and were happy to split the bill into couples which made it a lot easier at the end. The restaurant was very busy, it is obviously a popular place to eat. We sat upstairs which was a bit difficult for two of us... More

The food was wonderful, the staff exceptional, particularly Andrew, from I think Ross. The décor was wonderful, the ambience in all was great! I highly recommend this establishment.

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.
