Location and contact

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.

My friend and I went to this restaurant while visiting the Highlands for a 21st birthday dinner. While I was more interested in a seafood restaurant across the river, she preferred this one and I acquiesced. The host at our B&B recommended it, and so...More

We were told to visit here from many people around Inverness. I found the experience okay but my family enjoyed it more than me. Food was well prepared and enjoyable.

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.
