Surprised

Oddly bough, had no plans to go this restaurant. Arrived at the retail park area to find the establishment we were due to visit had closed down! There were a whole series of formulaic chain restaurants and chose this one. Service was very rapid and enthusiastic. The calamari was well cooked and... read more

I visited caffe uno for the first time today and what a great experience! We had full English breakfast which consisted of the freshest ingredients and was perfectly cooked, even the poached eggs were perfect which so many restaurants seem to struggle with. Really friendly, efficient staff. Will definitely be returning.

First time here for us after cinema visit. Had a drink before cinema, like the ambience and booked a table for after film finished. Starter arrived quickly but mains took a while. Food tasted good but could have been hotter. Would normally have gone to Prezzo but wanted a change, although menu very similar.

food is good but you can tell it is a pre-prepared and the cooks just put together having said that the staff are attentive and ambiance is very nice

Average food, small portions. Good, attentive staff. Quick service if you've booked for the nearby cinema.

We both ordered the steak as had previously this time though they were presented awfully, cold and chewy. my steak was undercooked and when we told the waitress she didn't have anything to say just walked...

This is a great place for informal dining, we always have had a prompt service and been served with nice dishes and prices are okay too. The dishes are similar to Prezzo as they sister companies I believe

Visited Caffe Uno Braintree before going to the cinema there. Didn't order starters had main meals and desserts from specials evening menu. I had pizza which was large but nicely thin crusted and well topped. Husband had Paella which looked nice when it came but only had prawns and chicken on the top. Desserts were not so good, profiteroles were... More

I have often eaten at Café Uno when visiting Freeport but am beginning to wonder why I have persisted. The food and service appear to be decreasing in quality and the service may be efficient but it is cold - only the trainee waitress deigned to smile last time we visited - and the menu never changes. On the plus... More

Walked past and it looked empty but after looking in the other restaurants decided to give it a go. Glad we did as the food was well presented and very nice.
