Recommended by our hotel. The food was average and we were rushed. They have a bit of an attitude as well. Wouldn’t recommend this place as there are great alternatives in the city.

Decided to eat here because of the gluten free food options available. So glad we did. Dinner was incredible! Great food, great drinks, and a great atmosphere.

Having spent three nights in Inverness I can appreciate this is the best restaurant in town, however the experience was mediocre. The staff is young and considerate, however there is a lack of a level of service, etiquette and decorum we expect. Unfortunately the staff...More

After several previous attempts to eat here on earlier visits we finally managed it and weren't disappointed. Delicious food in modest servings enabled us to enjoy great tastes without feeling we had overeaten. Lovely ambiance and attractive decor and friendly efficient service combine to create...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.
