A Little Bit About Us






The Riverside Restaurant has been family owned & run by Jo & Leigh Mitchell since March 2012. Having previously spent over the past 12 years in the Highland Hospitality trade working in local hotels around the Inverness area & beyond. We decided that we wanted to create a restaurant that reflects our passion for excellent Scottish Fayre. We recently received 2 awards this year (2017) from the Scottish Food Awards & Academy. The first for our Real & Local Food as we source & cook everything fresh & the other was award for Inverness Neighbourhood Restaurant of 2017.


We are surround by spectacular Highland scenery Inverness has some of the best Estates, fishing ports & of course the famous malt whisky trail making it an ideal location to offer some of the finest Fayre it produces. (Weather depending of course).

We can source some of the freshest fish from the North in Shetland and Aberdeen-shire coast line and can be with us within a day or so. Our local Fish & Seafood supplier Highland Fish based in Inverness are able to offer us North Sea Salmon, Cod & Haddock. Shetland Blue lipped mussels & East Coast Halibut & lots more Sea Fayre (when the seas are calm enough for the boats to leave port). Further North, we are supplied by the Ardgay Estate where we are able to source depending on the season various Game Meats & Poultry & we use local grass fed cattle for our beef from the award winning Munros of Dingwall Butcher.

All our desserts are created in house by Leigh & his team. We also have a nice selection of local and regional whiskies, beer & gin to compliment your meals throughout the day.


So if you are meeting a friend for a light lunch or a romantic setting we are sure to offer a dining experience with great food & wine. If you have any dietary requirements please let us know & we will do our best to meet you requests.


We look forward to welcoming you soon.
