Description: 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.

Visit here with friends on a busy Friday night.

The foot quality was great, and an excellent venue to meet up.

The service was excellent and enjoyed the meal.

This was very good and was a great find after a day of sightseeing. The restaurant is converted from an old church which give it character and, or course, history.

A must try if you’re in the area! This restaurant serves really good beef & venison; & the sauces were so perfectly made to go with the meat! Loved the ambience, the service... We love it there! Will definitely visit again when we are back!

The Mustard Seed still rates as my favourite restaurant of all time and is a definite on the visit list whenever I am in town. With a weekly menu change, this visit with friends was for Early Evening Dinner and as usual, it did not disappoint. I opted for the garlic mushroom bruschetta with parmesan, rocket and sunblush tomatoes followed by the special of tempura vegetables with lemongrass scented rice and soy and chilli dressing – both were absolutely delicious and were accompanied by a selection of oven roasted mixed vegetables and potatoes. Dessert was a mouth watering panacotta (and the occasional pick from my friend’s choice of the Cheeseboard!). I have visited The Mustard Seed many times over the years, from when it first opened to its current status as one of the most popular restaurants in town – whereas previously you could usually walk in and get a table without waiting, these days a reservation is strongly recommended but the atmosphere remain as welcoming as ever. I always recommend it to visitors to the city and have never heard any bad reviews. It’s probably sad to admit that I still check out their menus when not in town just to see what I am missing – another excuse to return back permanently to the Highlands in the future!!

Mustard Seed is my number one choice when visiting or working in Inverness. Had two excellent two course lunches over the past two days. Sadly due to a change in schedule I missed out today!
First day I turned up at noon & booked a table for one at one! No problem, turned up and was shown to my table. Always feel a bit awkward eating alone but the buzz & warmth of the staff soon dispel any anxieties!
As usual I struggle to choose but as I knew I was returning it was a bit easier. So decided on black pudding starter followed by my first Christmas standard turkey and trimmings! Both were presented beautifully and tasted as good as it looked!
Day 2, I was delayed but let the restaurant know, no problem! Shown to same seat as previous day which is perfect for people watching, over the restaurant. Had an excellent winter warmer soup, Curried Carrot Soup which was lovely and creamy. Followed this with Chicken on White pudding Mash, again succulent chicken and really tasty roasted veg accompaniments. Very disappointed that I didn’t make the third day but hope to return soon.
