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.


  • What a wonderful and delicious Sunday dinner it was! (Google Review, Aug22)

    The food and service were excellent.
    We went to Mustard Seed during our summer trip to Scotland and it was definitely among Top 3 meals we had there 🙂 We ate three Specials (fish, mussels and gnocchi) and all of them were excellent. Just remember to leave some space for the cheesecake as it is really amazing (and not too sweet as they often are), and to book a table in advance. We will definitely come back when in Inverness again!

  • The Best Meal we had during our trip (Google Review, Summer 22)

    Spent a week in Scotland, and The Mustard Seed was by far the best meal we had during the trip. It’s a slightly upscale restaurant, but it still felt relaxed and casual. Had an amazing evening with friends over several bottles of wine, and then ended with desserts and an espresso martini. Will absolutely be back next time I’m in the Highlands!

  • Nice restaurant with perfect location (Google Review, Aug21)

    Came without reservation and were attended to in no time and very professional. The service is outstanding, efficient, friendly and always with a smile. The menu reads very good, dishes composed with a little twist – above the ordinary – still excution not on the same level as menu promised. Wine selection was very good.
