We had lunch at this lovely decorated restaurant. Service is friendly and efficient. Food is good, but not outstanding though - we had expected a little better.

Though we live locally, it's a wee while since we'd been to the Mustardseed. It didn't disappoint. Four adults, including one vegan: we were well catered for. The restaurant is lively and busy, with a distinct bustle in the atmosphere. Possibly not the place for...More

The whole dinner was awkward. Took forever to be acknowledged by waitress. Food came to table in odd order with one person getting their whole meal before the rest of us. Managment did acknowledge the situation and credited our bill significantly.

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.
