Highly recommend this place both for the food and atmosphere. Make a booking as it gets very busy during the tourist season. This is one of two "sister" restaurants in Inverness, the other across the river. The ambiance of the Mustard Seed is open and...More

This is an excellent restaurant, good local produce used, everything is freshly prepared and the staff are very attentative. One slight fly in the ointment is the lack of space, the only reason it doesn't get 5 stars

This place was amazing. The champagne and pinot noir were delicious, the service was good (despite it being very busy), and the main lamb dish I ordered was incredible! Would go back in a heart beat.

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.
