We enjoyed a delicious lunch sitting upstairs with a great view. Our food was very light and fresh tasting, fairly priced and the service was good. Our tour guide had recommended and we were quite pleased.

This is a beautiful place to have a meal, and as others point out, you can't deny that fact. Perhaps I just ordered the wrong thing, and perhaps I just hit the staff on a bad day, but aside from setting, I found little to...More

In defense if the restaurant, we ate there when it was bristling full.. Food was good, but not special, prices are quite steep. Service was ok as well, but neither too friendly nor fast. All in all it was a bit disappointing, although it was...More

Really enjoyed the food here. And will definitely go again. The choice for vegetarians is limited but acceptable given its a lifestyle choice. Try and get a seat upstairs if you can.

At first I was pleased that this recommended restaurant was able to fit us in without a reservation. Our waitress was pleasant but I found her food recommendation not accurate.

This is a busy restaurant in Inverness. Definitely recommend making reservations before you show up. We were lucky to get a table as walk-in customers. Service was friendly and amazing. The food was delicious and some of the best G&Ts in Scotland!

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.
