If you plan to eat in Inverness in a Thursday-Saturday, make reservations today. They will actually turn you away. Food was good, not amazing as told by all the locals. It was a busy Saturday night and service was noticeably delayed/off. Enjoyed the atmosphere and...More

The food is ok, the mackerel starter seemed a bit past it's best and though my lamb was good, the chicken and the salmon were not memorable for my fellow diners. The really bad part is the wood-burning cage. With smoking banned I don't know...More

In old church which makes for an interesting setting. Expensive. Noisy which makes conversation tough. Food just ok; dry and bland. There are much better places in town. Skip this one, or go in for a drink to see it and don't stay for dinner....More

Hello, yes, contact the restaurant and they will advise. If I mind correctly there were two GF starters and two GF mains,since I did not have dessert I cannot comment. The only downside is they do not have gluten-free bread.

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.
