We are here on a Sunday evening recently. The staff weren't quite on the ball which let the place down sadly. This restaurant had been highly recommended. If we hadn't reminded them our cocktails would have arrived after our main course. The food was very good but service not good enough. I wasn't impressed when our waiter served us stinking... More

Six of us made a lunch reservation for 2:30pm. We had a wonderful meal and were never made to feel hurried despite the fact we were the only people left in the restaurant by 4:30pm . The food was delicious and as we were at a round table could all talk to each other without shouting. Service was excellent, the... More

A very average meal. The food was generally tasty, but the portions were small - and the accompanying vegetables were virtually non-existent. The staff were exceptionally pleasant but the service was truly appalling. We had to ask for menus, ask for water, ask for drinks. Also we had to wait 50 minutes before our starters were served. This seemed to... More

This restaurant is right along a lovely canal close to our B & B. We walked there strolling along the lovely paths on both sides of the canal and a pedestrian bridge making it easy to enjoy the area. It was very quiet outside, so we did not anticipate the crowd enjoying dinner at this establishment. It was a soaring... More

I picked this restaurant off Trip Advisor as one of the best in Inverness. My partner and I had a fantastic night because we were both in good humour but it wasn't because of the food. I will say the atmosphere and layout of the restaurant are fantastic. Somebody has spent a lot of time thinking about it. It was... More

We did not have a reservation, but got seated (2) when we arrived around 8:15. This is a nice restaurant and definitely a step up from the pub food we had been eating. The couple next to us raved about the steak and ale pie. We had the fig/blue cheese/prosciutto appetizer, the mushroom soup, a steak, and fish. The service... More

First time I'd visited but couldn't fault it at all! We were escorted to our table and very member of staff we passed welcomed us and as we left every member of staff said thank you and wished us a good afternoon. Food was brilliant, only managed a starter and a main but was delicious and beautifully presented! Will be... More

A birthday lunch for a group of friends. Lovely welcome and immediately served with fresh bread and water. Lovely, warm and cosy environment as it was a really wet day. We ordered from the set menu which had a really good varied selection. Our starters were delicious and the main courses were also lovely. Lots of side vegetables and the... More

We are working in Inverness this week and colleagues recommended the mustard seed. We were not dissappointed, it was just perfect. Quite busy (6:15) so there was a buzz about the place. The real fire smelt wonderful. We had a lovely table by the window overlooking the waterfront and watched the sunset. Excellent menu choice, friendly courteous and attentive staff.... More

Another great lunch yesterday at our favorite eatery in Inverness! Food was, as always delicious, excellent value and original! Grilled WHITE pudding was amazing! We followed up with espresso martinis which were also amazing! Service as always was very friendly and efficient! Hope to be back soon! Thank you!

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.
