Nice decor and a decent concept, but it's far, far too expensive. The antipasto sharing platter is especially poor value for money. Supermarket charcuterie and 4, count them, strips of rather sad looking roasted peppers that were still cold from the jar in the fridge... Main courses, risotto and peri-peri chicken, were OK. But, again, the prices being charged are... More

A rather disappointing experience about the meal I had with my wife in Cafe Uno. I started with a goats cheese and caramelised onion tart which was rather large and the best course of the evening, but was a dish that you wouldn't remember it. My wife had halloumi and chorizo that tasted fine but slightly stingy on rocket salad.... More

Went here randomly for dinner and was pleasantly surprised. For starters in had field mushrooms and the girlfriend had crab cakes which were very good, for mains i had the sirloin which i assumes would be the standard 8oz but turned out to be a 10 which was nice. Peppercorn sauce also very nice. My girlfriend has the pasta with... More

We needed a light, uncomplicated and inexpensive lunch and Caffé Uno gave us just that. It was our first visit to this restaurant and we were delighted. Décor is smart but a little "harsh" It is a big place but is laid out cunningly to look as if it is smaller and cosier. The staff are friendly and efficient. We... More

15 minute wait when we said we didn't want ice in our drinks, an hour and a quarter between starters and mains. When we commented, they said they'd taken the drinks off the bill, we I had mineral water and a coffee, my partner had three vodkas; what drinks did they take off? The coffee and the water obviously. The... More

I went here on a Saturday at 6pm and it was very busy with the Freeport crowd. The service was pretty poor and it took ages to get served - with small children that can make your dining experience a nightmare. The food when it arrived was distinctly average and frankly not worth the wait. I find it particularly galling... More

We frequently eat here, always find the food good huge portion sizes, the staff are attentive and polite although difficult to understand as they arent English but this seems to be the same for many restraunts in the area. I do find some of the tables a little to close to each other for comfort and if the restaurant is... More

We went here for lunch on a Sunday afternoon. The food was good although my gnocchi dish was very repetitive and a tad bland - I had no such trouble with the desert though! Unfortunately the service was not brilliant here. Our waitress, due to English not being her first language, did come across as blunt and rude. The thing... More
