Average, but convenient for the cinema

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

We had been to café uno previously and loved it. However when we cane again on a Saturday evening we were left very disappointed. 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.

This is a very pleasant restaurant with helpful friendly staff. The menu is restricted but adequate with a reasonably priced wine list. The food was quite good although the pasta dishes were too dry. Unfortunately all the plates were cold resulting in the well cooked food quickly moving towards the temperature of the plates! Had the plates been hot I... More

I would recommend Caffe Uno every time, each time we go, it just gets better. The food is lovely, the staff couldn't be more helpful, the prices are as expected, not to high, good value for money. The desserts and coffee are amazing. The standard of hygiene is excellent, If I have to find a fault..it is hard and out... More

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
