Visited as a member of party of eight. Had a reservation and was seated immediately. Service was a bit slow (especially getting drinks from bar) due to the restaurant being crowded (and noisy) but we weren't in a rush so it was OK. Hostess was very pleasant and made a table side visit to check on us. Everyone enjoyed their... More

Dinner here with a friend. Pre-booked and shown to a nice table upstairs. A little hot inside as it had been boiling outside all day. Waitress was very formal! The food was good and the place had a nice ambiance. Not the cheapest, but for a treat I would recommend this place.

Very friendly staff. Prompt service. Both my venison dish and my husbands lemon soul were well prepared and delicious. Be prepared for some noise as it is an open restaurant with the second floor that looks down.

The mustard seed was recommended to us by our b&b and it turned out to be the best meal of our whole trip and we had some good ones. We were travelling around Scotland to celebrate my Mum's 70th birthday. The food was amazing and the service perfect too including a chat with the manager, chef and a glass of... More

Especially the blue cheese salad. The wine selection was good and the price was very good. 4 people with some desserts and drinks was... More

Overall, my wife and I had a nice dinner at the Mustard Seed. The food and wine was very good. The negative of my experience was that we were sat right next to the kitchen door which resulted in an extremely high flow of traffic by our table. Also, our waitress had a bad cough which was very unappetizing.

As I arrived the lady in front of me was told 'you've got the last table'. When they told me that I'd need to come back in an hour, she turned and invited me to join her. Delicious food at a great price (£9.95 for two courses at lunchtime) with fine views over the River Ness if you sit upstairs,... More

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.
