Without a doubt my favourite restaurant in Inverness. Have been several times and it never disappoints. Good portion sizes, cooked to perfection and lovely atmosphere.

On a recent trip to Scotland, I ate at a few excellent restaurants, but Café 1 was the best. I highly recommend making a special trip to this fine establishment! And try the Red Rocker beer!

I had eaten at this restaurant some years ago at a friend birthday dinner, and disliked the experience so much , I vowed never to return. My wife Liz had been back, and said I should try it again, so with a little trepidation I decided to have my retirement and 65th birthday dinner at Cafe 1, I had invited... More

We ate lunch here with friends. Service was crisp and efficient, the food was excellent, the wine list was also. Lots of flavour, tasty, well cooked and well-presented. I didn't pick up the bill, but the prices were pretty reasonable.

Went with my husband and 18 friends and family to celebrate his 65th birthday and retirement. Food was superb, service by staff excellent. Could not fault the night, everyone was complimenting our choice of venue. Would highly recommend.

Have eaten here many times and as usual, the food is great quality and well prepared. Last visit was on a Saturday night. The place was packed out, and there were a couple of large birthday celebrations/girls nights out that made it very noisy. I guess that's one of the consequences of being so popular! Service was a little slow,... More

Cafe 1 is a classic contemporary restaurant with wonderful ambiance and gourmet food that is beautifully presented. We ordered the special of the evening, the beef medallions, which were cooked to perfection. I thoroughly enjoyed my fig salad and my husband loved his mushroom soup. This is a first class restaurant with very good service.

We had a lovely meal in cafe 1 with my sister- in-law & partner, we did have to wait a while for our order to be taken and then we has to ask. Our food was lovely and the staff were very attentive, would certainly love to return & sample some more of there menu.
